Mass Special Election Numbers
Advertisements [?]
In the 2008 general election the numbers were:
1,104,284 McCain
1,891,083 Obama

In the special election for the senate seat one year and 2 months later.
1,168,107 Brown + 64,000 more than McCain
1,058,682 Coakley - 830,000 less than Obama

The turnout for the conservative went up and the liberal vote declined by 40%.

That is amazing. Never happened before in such large numbers.

If the vote totals for the pubbie went down by a similar percentage as the dem, the dem would have won. But for the first time ever, in an off year election, the vote for the conservative actually increased.

That Brown is something. This trend continues and Jeb Bush will be the next president.

Something weird has happened. What could it be?
