Even if they don't, it looks likely that they will come very, very close if this poll is anything to go by * insert usual caveats about polls, samples, margins of errpr etc*
And that would be remarkable enough in itself.
From the Instapundit:
NEW POLL: Boston Herald: ‘Brown-out’ poll shows Scott Brown trumping Martha Coakley. “Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows. Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos.”
