Scott Rasmussen has some election-night polling news of his own:
- Among those who decided how they would vote in the past few days, Coakley has a slight edge, 47% to 41%.
- Coakley also has a big advantage among those who made up their mind more than a month ago.
- Seventy-six percent (76%) of voters for Brown said they were voting for him rather than against Coakley.
- Sixty-six percent (66%) of Coakley voters said they were voting for her rather than against Brown.
- 22% of Democrats voted for Brown. That is generally consistent with pre-election polling.
Twenty-two percent sounds like a lot, but this is, after all, Massachusetts. We’ll see how those independents voted and whether that mysterious “enthusiasm gap,” which has bedeviled Democrats, is enough to put Scott Brown over the top.
