From Michael Novak at the Corner who still thinks Coakley can win:
I am still registered in Cambridge, I bet, from 50 years ago at Harvard. The Democratic practice they used to brag about was to avoid taking old names off the registry and, in tough elections, to count as many as they needed. In really close years, they would also vote the graveyards. Once you vote in Massachusetts, they used to say, you could vote forever. But only if needed.
Kathryn Jean Lopez also at the Corner later provided this information:
Massachusetts had 116,483 dead people on its voter registration rolls and another 538,567 people who were no longer living at the addresses on their registrations, according to a study released by Aristotle International Inc., a nonpartisan political technology and data firm. On Tuesday, Massachusetts will hold a special U.S. Senate election between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown. Polls show a close race.
I hope the Brown campaign has set aside a lot of money for challenges if Martha Coakley comes out on top tomorrow night, even though tonight the RCP average of 6 different polls have Brown up by 6.
Left wing talk show host Ed Schultz said he would cheat if that’s what it would take to make sure Coakley wins, and something tells me ACORN and the unions see Ed as something of a kindred spirit in these matters.
