President Obama Flies in to Support Deval Patrick

YouTube Preview Image

[section_spacer]

The Patrick campaign is not acting like it knows it is 7 points ahead in the polls. You ask the President fly in and stump for you two weeks before election day unless, like Martha Coakley, you think your campaign is in a little trouble.

Patrick’s introduction is really strong. He is still a great and charismatic speaker. But there is a huge difference in the enthusiasm the crowd shows Obama than they show Patrick. The video tries to tone down this difference by turning down the crowd noise and overlaying some music – but there is no denying it – that crowd was there for Obama only.

Patrick 46%, Baker 39% and Cahill 10% in Latest Suffolk Poll

Poll Analysis from Jessica Van Sack:

http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view.bg?articleid=1288667

Definitely not a good poll for Baker, but not as negative as many are saying. Can’t say I disagree with Van Sack, fallout from Cahill collapse appears to be helping Patrick.

Question 3, cutting sales tax to 3%: Support: 44%, Oppose: 49%

Question 1, repeal alcohol sales tax: Repeal: 46%, Maintain: 47%

Massachusetts Gubernatorial Debate about Cape Wind

The original post is on MassInc. The debate was at Suffolk University on August 16th, and focused on just Cape Wind.

Baker and Cahill come down against Cape Wind based mostly on cost and the massive subsidies to make it work. Patrick supports it based on the environmental benefits and on the jobs it creates. Patrick also cites how Cape Wind would protect Masssachusetts from cost volatility.

Stein is especially strong and convincing. She classifies herself as a commited environmental activist but opposes, like Baker and Cahill, based on cost and low cost efficiency. Where she really shines is how she calls out Patrick for taking contributions from Cape Wind interests, and for the closed door deals that got it done. She calls on the Governor to return contributions from Cape Wind lobbyists.

At one point Patrick calls Stein a “mole” and she retorts that “you have to be a mole to know what is happening on Beacon Hill.”

It is amazing to see the Green Party and Republicans largely in agreement. The debate ends up being to a large degree about transparency and insider “pay to play” contracts.
