so, why would the media have it right now?
in 2006, according to the media, the democrats 'might' win the house but the senate was out of the question....guess what?

in 2008, according to the media, john mccain was neck and neck with Obama to win the presidency,...guess what?

in 2010, according to the media, brown & coakley are in a tight race and the democrats are possibly going to lose Ted Kennedy's senate seat.....we'll see.

1. I remember a certain race in NY recently...

that didn't go the way of the polls, though it was a nail biter. I'm hoping Coakley pulls out a win in spite of the polls and media. I just can't see Brown winning in MA. I know they voted for Romney, but he wasn't nearly as nauseatingly right wing as Brown.

2. In 2008 this close to the election - Obama was highly favored
we will know Tues - but its not a good sign that the repubs are even close to getting Kennedy's old seat

3. Someone is posting Coakleys internals and it looks challenging.

4. It seems to me that the MSM is a republican tool
they push and they prod and they try to help republicans any way they can. After all we must remember that seven out of eight conglomerates of the media industry are republican owned and of course they have to publish all their "libural" views.

5. Because a (D) holding that seat isn't much of a story. No way to fill air time with that

6. The media all predicted a Obama victory
The only time they were "neck and neck" was a couple months out.
