Public Policy Polling, a respected Democratic firm, has released its final poll on the Massachusetts Senate election. Republican Scott Brown leads Democrat Martha Coakley 51% to 46%.

Some striking results:

--Coakley now has a -7 favorable rating (44/51 fav/unfav), while Brown has a +19 favorable rating (56/37).

--Coakley's 44% favorable rating is exactly tied with Obama's 44% approval rating.

--PPP asked if voters "support or oppose President Obama's health care plan," and the results were 48% opposed and 40% in favor.

Remember: this is Massachusetts.
