Turnout, polls, snow, signs and more …
Tidbits on the race:
says that Nate Silver is noticing a last-day heavy polling swing toward Brown.
-- Turnout seems to be moderate to heavy, despite the snow. Here’s turnout news from: Herald
, Universal Hub
. Is heavy turnout a sign of Brown momentum or the Dem Machine cranking it up? That’s the big question.
-- Driving to work, I was struck by the A.) heavy snow (and not just a sprinkle – it’s still snowing heavily outside) and B.) Scott Brown sign holders at intersections, bundled up and defiantly braving the elements. No Coakley sign holders spotted, though I know
they're out there.
-- Best headline on a local blog: “If Joe Kennedy Wins We Are Merging with Blue Mass Group.”
-- Michael Graham
and guest VB were hilarious this morning on ‘TKK. Both hedged for the record on today’s election (who hasn’t?), but were clearly upbeat about a potential Brown win, knocking on wood and crossing their hearts/hoping to die, etc.. They listed all the Martha foibles. Man, it was a long list.
-- Found myself thinking earlier this morning: When was the last time Massachusetts conservatives, moderates and Independents etc. felt as good and/or psyched up about a local election? I think it goes back eight long years ago to Mitt's election in 2002.Update

: Long polling-place lines don't auger well for Martha. He explains.
