There’s life in the Empty Barn Jacket, aka Scott Brown, GOP candidate for Senate in New Hampshire. The Cook Report has moved his race against incumbent Jeanne Shaheen from Leans Dem to Toss-up.
Really, New Hampshire? You’re going to vote for a bulb so dim he reminds me of Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, who is truly a moron. You want to cringe through six years of fatuousness from this pathetic pretty boy?
Republican Scott Brown is gaining on incumbent Dem Jeanne Shaheen in their New Hampshire Senate race. The Empty Barn Jacket leads 46-44. Last month’s 12-point Shaheen lead seemed a little too good to be true.
But Brown’s still underwater in his favorables/unfavorables at 36-38, while Shaheen’s are positive at 48-36. And 60% of those polled said their votes weren’t solid.
The barn jacket and the pick-up truck have lost their magic. Poor Scott Brown just wants to be in the Senate, people. But having been kicked out by the people of Massachusetts in favor of Elizabeth Warren, his slither across the border to New Hampshire isn’t panning out. He’s trailing another woman, incumbent Dem Jeanne Shaheen, by 12 points — 52 to 40.
And his favorables/unfavorables are upside down at 31 and 40. Hers are right side up at 57-29.
A beat-up Scott may have to toss his carpetbag in that beat-up truck and head back home.
Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com says the GOP has a 60% chance of taking the Senate.
But he’s not bullish on our favorite empty barn jacket, former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown, who is now running in New Hampshire against Jeanne Shaheen. Silver gives Shaheen a 75% chance of keeping her seat, leaving Brown to hop in his pickup truck and perhaps look for love (he is, after all, a former Cosmopolitan centerfold) in yet a third state.
