Massachusetts Senate Race Update: Youth Rail Against Obamacare

Massachusetts Senate Race Update: Youth Rail Against Obamacare

It is increasingly likely that Brown pulls off a huge upset on Tuesday in the Massachusetts Senate special election.

Here is a list of the most Recent Massachusetts Senate Polls from Right Pundits.

Given polling trends, it is reasonable to completely discount all polls prior to 1-14-2010. Moreover it would be reasonable to overweight the most recent polls, taken in the last two days.

The average of the last two days is:
Coakley 44.25
Brown 50.50

The average of the previous three days is:
Coakley 44.75
Brown 48.25

Two of the polls are arguably outliers, the PJM poll on the 15th (heavily skewed to Brown and the R2000 poll skewed to Coakley on the 14th.

Tossing those results out and averaging the six polls looks like this:
Coakley 44.66
Brown 50.00

No matter how you play with the results, Coakley does not exceed 45% of the vote. Kennedy, a Libertarian (no relation to Ted Kennedy) is expected to get 2-3%.

New Sunday Evening Poll

By the way, that table of results does not include still one more recent poll. Please consider New poll: Brown up 9.

A new InsiderAdvantage poll conducted exclusively for POLITICO shows Republican Scott Brown holding a 9-point advantage over Martha Coakley a day before Massachusetts voters trek to the ballot box to choose a new senator.

According to the survey conducted Sunday evening by the non-partisan firm, Brown leads the Democratic attorney general 52 percent to 43 percent.

"I actually think the bottom is falling out," said InsiderAdvantage CEO Matt Towery, referring to Coakley’s fall in the polls over the last ten days. "I think that this candidate is in freefall. Clearly this race is imploding for her."

"Men are not going to vote for Coakley at all. You have a very angry male voter who’s repudiating whatever is being said in Washington and they’re taking it out on this woman. And independents are clearly going to the Republican in droves. What’s left are the Democratic voters," said Towery, who is a former aide to Newt Gingrich.

And the survey shows almost a quarter of Democratic voters lining up with Brown.

"When there’s a nine-point difference, it’s awfully hard to shave off enough

Could It Be "Schitts Creek" For Technology Stocks If Selling Starts Here?

The Nasdaq has been the unparalleled leader of the stock market in 2020, having rallied furiously off the COVID-19 crash market bottom in March.

But all of the excitement around tech stocks and the comeback in the stock market may be coming to an end… that is, if a key Fibonacci price target has anything to do with it!

In today’s chart, we look at the long-term “monthly” chart of the Nasdaq Composite Index (IXIC) and focus in on the 18-year rally.

As you can see, the Nasdaq peaked in 2000 and bottomed in 2002. Applying Fibona...

There are a few times in history when a third party said this US paper (stocks, funds or bonds) is worthless.

Here is two.

1) 1965 Nixon Shock - The French said to US we do not want your paper dollars please pay us in gold. This of course led to the US going off the gold standard.

2) 2007 Bear Stern Fund Collapse - Investors said their funds collateral was worth much less than stated. This of course was the beginning of the great america housing bust of 2008.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Courtesy of Technical Traders

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
