Barney Frank May be in Trouble: Massachusetts Turnout High

Republican Charles Baker's campaign to spur Governor Deval Patrick (D) from office might have reason to celebrate before the polls close at eight o'clock (get out there and vote, if you have not already).

Incumbent Barney Frank may suffer if the Republican voters also turn out just like earlier this year in the Scott Brown election. Brown received 53% in all of Massachusetts and took the 4th Congressional District. If Sean Bielat can turn out a significant number of voters, he may be the next Congressman from that district.

After all, Frank had to have Bill Clinton come in and campaign for him and Bielat has been pushing very hard, perhaps bringing this to the wire.

Via WickedLocal.com:

Republicans jumped on reports of above-average voter turnout in cities and towns across Massachusetts on Tuesday to portray a seismic swing in their direction while the head of the state Democratic Party said high turnout was “definitely good news” for Democrats.
Republicans took to the airwaves to spin the turnout results as a validation of their warnings that Massachusetts voters want to change the guard on Beacon Hill. Democrats have repeatedly touted a “coordinated campaign” and a get-out-the vote effort they say could blunt Republican gains.
My sister-in-law basically texted the same thing to me earlier in the day, as it appears GOP turnout is going much better than previously expected, which could indicate one of two likely things: Democrats are not allowing Massachusetts to fall, or Republicans and Independents in the State have united to spur a common foe.

DaTechGuy has done a wonderful job of updating voter turnout in Fitchburgh. One of the more notable items is "In ward 6 where two years ago I stood alone, a group held signs for republican candidates ", which is absolutely phenomenal. While I don't know the specific numbers from my sister-in-law, cars "were streaming into the polling place" in Rutland.

I'm not overly confident of winning Massachusetts, but the early signs are promising.
