The “Scott” heard around the world. The Massachusetts Miracle. Call it what you want, the bottom line is that Brown’s win in Massachusetts is an earth-shattering development in American politics. As prognosticator extraordinaire Stu Rothenberg wrote earlier today, “A Brown win would be the biggest political upset of my adult life.”
Well, there you have it.
Now, I may end up being wrong. On Monday I predicted an eight point win by Brown. At the moment he is up seven, but there are still a lot of ballots to be counted, so it may be even closer than seven. But holy cow! A Republican wins in a state that went for Obama 15 months ago by 26 points!
That thunder you hear is Democrat Congressman running for the tall grass.
More analysis to come…
