WASHINGTON, DC (January 18, 2010) – William Greene, Chairman of the conservative online political action committee RightMarch.com PAC, announced today that Independent candidate Joseph Kennedy is taking enough votes from Martha Coakley to insure her loss in the upcoming special election for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.
“Our proprietary internal polling of likely voters in Massachusetts this past weekend makes one thing very clear,” said William Greene, Chairman of the RightMarch.com PAC. “Joe Kennedy is siphoning off a large chunk of votes from Martha Coakley, the Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate.”
The special election, to fill the remaining two years of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s term, will be held on January 19th. Besides Joseph Kennedy (who is not related to Ted Kennedy), Coakley and Republican Scott Brown will also be on the ballot. “In many ‘normal’ elections, when there is a third-party candidate like Joe Kennedy, he often takes votes from the Republican candidate,” said Greene. “But in this special election, we’re seeing that Republicans who originally weren’t going to vote are now planning to vote for Joe Kennedy, and more importantly, a large percentage of Democrats are also planning to vote for Kennedy – more than likely, because of confusion regarding his name. Polls are showing Coakley at below 50% now – it’s obvious that things would be different if Kennedy weren’t on the ballot.”
