This Poll Has Coakley Way Ahead

A new Boston Globe poll shows Martha Coakley (D), "buoyed by her durable statewide popularity, enjoys a solid, 15-percentage-point lead" among likely voters over rival Scott Brown (R) in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate race, 50% to 35%.

In fact, Coakley's lead grows to 17 points -- 53% to 36% -- when undecideds leaning toward a candidate are included in the tally.

Said pollster Andrew Smith: "She's simply better known and better liked than Brown. If there ever was a time for a Republican to win here, now is the time. The problem is you've got a special election and a relatively unknown Republican going up against a well-liked Democrat."

A poll last night suggested the race was too close to call because of an enthusiasm gap between Republicans and Democrats.
