Just Cast My Vote for Scott Brown

About an hour ago, I cast my vote for Scott Brown.  Anecdotally, it was no busier than previous elections that I have voted in.  MrsSal and I were in and out of the precinct in five minutes, both of us casting our vote for Brown (and feeling pretty damn excited about it).  Outside of the precinct, there were two sign-holders for Martha Coakley, and around a dozen for Scott Brown.  The enthusiasm is definitely in his favor.

In the end, it all comes down to turnout.  From what I have seen, Scott Brown seems to have a good ground game.  In the last week, we’ve received multiple calls daily from the Brown campaign, reminding us to get out and vote.  At the end of the day, I think the enthusiasm and turnout will propel Brown to victory, and so I make my prediction here:  Brown 51, Coakley 47, Kennedy 2.

If you’re a resident of Massachusetts, get out and vote.  Help propel Scott Brown to victory.  And, if you’re looking for inspiration, get some from the Gipper.  Go Scott Brown!

I voted for Brown around 8:30 this morning. Tough to find a parking spot at the high school, but there were no lines inside. There were about 8 – 10 people holding signs for Brown and only one for Coakley. More encouraging anecdotal evidence: boston.com is letting people post who they voted for and their experiences at their polling place. My last count about an hour ago (~11am):

People who said they voted for Brown: 754 (62.94%)
People who said they voted for Coakley: 444 (37.06%)

Obviously not a scientific sample, but definitely shows that Brown’s voters are more interested / motivated. Especially since I wouldn’t expect a particularly conservative slant from the Boston Globe website’s readers.

I made sure my sister and brother-in-law got out to vote early!

Also, I hope your 51-47 figure holds true if not better. If it’s closer than that the Dems will absolutely try to steal this election as blatantly as needed. I saw some of the ads up in RI this weekend (I was up for a funeral) and it was pretty obvious that the Coakley campaign was desperate — even saying that Brown opposed the rights of rape victims?!? Brown played it cool and positive in his ads. They looked great and I hope he wins big!
