PPP(D)- MA Senate Brown Up over Markey, Lynch

A new Public Policy Polling release shows a much closer race in Massachusetts, as to be expected, than the MassInc released before Lynch made his intentions more clear, giving former U.S. Senator Scott Brown a three point edge (48-45) over Congressman Ed Markey and a nine point lead (48-39) over Congressman Stephen Lynch.

The open race for Secretary of State Kerry's seat will be tight but should favor the Republican, as Brown has proven his ease in a special election before and will be facing a far less Democrat-heavy electorate in June (PPP's sample is only +24 D/R for this race, which looks more like a repeat of the 2010 turnout). On the Democratic primary Markey holds a sizable lead over Lynch, but that may be because he had formerly declared way ahead of him. Former Senator Brown enjoys a +7 approval rating (50/43), better than either of his Democratic rivals.

PPP also asked voters about a Brown v D matchup in the upcoming open race for Governor, indicating he has a much more solid lead if he were to wait. I find that question a bit screwy since the focus has been on Kerry's seat and it may be an attempt to "trial balloon" a race, but there ya go. The election is June 25th.

50 I grew up in Markey’s district here in the People’s Republic of MA, and for personal reasons returned to it some 2 years ago after working in East Asia for close to 20 years. To borrow a felicitous phrase from Soledad O’Brien, it boggles me that he has been in the US House for some 36 years.
My own most direct interaction with “Markey’s World” happened when I visited his Capitol Hill office in late 1987 concomitant with the massive rally for Soviet Jewry held in DC to greet Gorbachev’s official visit.(This rally came on the heels of Natan Sharansky’s release from the gulag and expulsion from the USSR; Sharansky was a featured speaker leading this rally and I had the privilege of meeting with him in-person with my confreres on the Harvard Hillel Soviet Jewry Committee about 36 hours ahead of the rally.)
At Markey’s office, I met and chatted with his Legislative Assistant (LA) for foreign policy matters, not with Markey himself — but I hold that the views of a hireling of a Congressman are reflective of the Congressman’s own views, at least when the hireling is speaking on the Congressman’s behalf with constituents.And those views were a doozy.
In short, the LA announced that the Markey official stance was that *all* matters in the portfolio of US-USSR relations hinged on the enactment of a mutual comprehensive nuclear-weapons freeze.Achieve an American-Soviet agreement in this sphere, the Markey stance went, and all else could be addressed *subsequently* as a consequence of the momentous bilateral confidence-building the freeze would engender.The corollary of this Markey stance, per what the LA expounded, was that separate and aggressively pursued lobbying of the Soviet leadership on behalf of Jewish refuseniks, Jewish prisoners of conscience, and any other oppressed dissident individuals and/or groups constituted a supremely unhelpful distraction from the primary task of attaining the nukes freeze.
I was aghast — one would have thought that, at a minimum, the hard-evidence testimony of a Natan Sharansky (and of numerous other released dissidents who had preceded him into freedom beyond Warsaw Pact boundaries) might have clued Representative Markey and his team into fact that the order of priorities (and the rationale involved) was actually the opposite of what they were propounding.
But no dice — Markey dogma was Markey dogma, and so it was that “my” Congressman established his place firmly and irrevocably in the pantheon of the Intellectually Slipshod and Morally Obtuse who enthusiastically abandoned those who mattered in the struggle for freedom.None of his blabberings in the intervening years to now evidences any change of mindset, irrespective of the topic or the times.
One addendum is that Markey is not “my” Congressman in any resident-in-his-district sense either, at least not for the past 15 years or so.“Technically” his residency has been established here in the district via listing his parents’ old house in Malden, MA as his primary abode, but in simple physical terms he’s strictly a DC denizen.
I suppose that in his favor one could say that Markey isn’t corrupt — but his record and capabilities remind me of what Triumph the Insult Comic Dog said of Puff Daddy/P.Diddy: “I didn’t know suit-wearing was a skill.”

76 <i>Well shit, that oughta do it right there. We'll just "work on" it. Didn't know the answer was under our noses the whole time.</i>

Considering a popular attitude around the GOP the last few years has been "We don't need MA, NY, CA, NJ, PA, Blacks, Single Women, Hispanics, etc..." that might have been less obvious than you think.

Remember arguing with early Perry supporters why I didn't think he had much of a chance when he was polling in single digits in New Hampshire. The usual response was: "Well, he'll win the South!"

Great. That and $1.00 still won't get you an electoral college win and a bottle of Valu-Rite Vodka.

What efforts is the GOP actually making in places like MA or PA to field successful local candidates? To start laying groundwork for better state and federal level candidates? Organizing those R's that are there already to share ideas with friends, families and neighborhoods? Building networks that actually work, rather than ORCA?

Instead, all I generally see are states like VA, NC and FL trending purple/blue, and now the Dems are actively targeting TX. Flip those states and the GOP is screwed.

82 @73 pep

Absolutely agree with you.

Plus, it appears that Brown's instincts are decently conservative, and the problem is with the constraints of being from a moonbat state with moonbat (and/or criminal) constituents.

In response to a debate question, for example, he unhesitatingly named Scalia as the SCOTUS justice he most admires.
A group of pretty conservative Boston-based GOP-ers with whom I occasionally meet for lunch have all said they would very much like Brown to run for the seat. This is a group that is well-plugged-in with the MA state GOP organization, is very cognizant of the state party's problems, and is not RINO at all.

Posted by: RamonAllones at January 30, 2013 08:56 PM (3lLli)

83 What the hell is wrong with you people?

OF COURSE we want Brown in the Senate. The worst RINO imaginable is still better than the liberal shits and corrupt maggots on the Democrat side.

Getting Scott re-elected puts us one seat closer to recapturing the Senate. That's a big f'n deal.

And getting Scott re-elected would also be a very satisfying counter to all the liberal shit/corrupt maggot triumphalism that's been echoing from the hillsides these past three months.

What's with the defeatism? Sure, we got our asses kicked in November -- but it wasn't the huge mandate the liberal shits and corrupt maggots want everyone to believe it was. The liberal shit/corrupt maggots ran a better campaign and had the media machine sucking their collective cock. Going all-out with blatant 24/7 lies, massive illegal campaign donations from China, and rampant fraud they still just barely managed to drag Barack across the finish line.

Stop believing what the liberal shits want you to believe. We aren't beaten unless we think we are.

I'm going to volunteer and vote for Scott Brown, and to Hell with any doomsayers who claim it's all pointless. If it's pointless, you can shut the fuck up about it.

87 "Instead, all I generally see are states like VA, NC and FL trending purple/blue, and now the Dems are actively targeting TX. Flip those states and the GOP is screwed. "



Hint: the GOP is already screwed. You're still just offering up empty slogans: "Field better candidates"


Really? Better networks? Right, piece of cake. The Republicans are trying to sell themselves as "Offering less than the Democrats" and its not going to work, because the only alternative is actual conservatism and the GOP has made it clear that they're not interested.

Doesn't matter if the votes (in the scenario you say is preferable) still pass liberal legislation. No thanks. Slow suicide is not appealing.

No raw nerves here. How's about YOU?

So your snark comes across a little weird and I'm projecting? Either your snark sucks or you don't know what "projecting" means.



Either way, sort of a pointless dickfest we're about to devolve into, no?

What about Merkin Muffley?'

You mean the Last President We'll Ever Have?

Besides, I'm pretty sure that guy's English ... also dead, oh, 3 decades plus by now ... so likely a Dem.
