Coakley Hires Franken Recount Attorney
Could it really be that close?
8:00 PM, Jan 19, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
The Coakley press release alleging voter fraud is dated yesterday, January 18, and the Massachusetts Secretary of State is discounting reports of fraud. So these stories appear to be without merit. But could the race be close enough to end up in a recount?
Tucker Carlson reports that pollster Frank Luntz is having a hard time finding Coakley voters willing to participate in his focus group on TV. Nate Silver writes that this is either a "really bad sign for Martha Coakley or a really good sign." It could possibly mean that voters are so embarrassed of Coakley they won't turn out, or that many of her voters have declined to tell pollsters they're supporting her. We'll know soon enough. The polls just closed at 8:00 p.m.
