Didn't Scott Brown win Barney's district?

I can understand why Scott Brown beat Martha what's-her-name in Barney Frank's district last year. What I cannot understand, is how Barney is now beating Sean Bielat in the polls.

What type of person would vote for Scott Brown, and then choose Barney Frank? Can someone explain that?

I'm just so sick of having to listen to that degenerate, tax-and-spend pervert. Barney literally makes my skin crawl. And Sean Bielat is awesome.

I predict that the GOP will win 50 house seats (giving them the majority), and 8 senate seats (not quite giving them the majority). I'd love to see Barney Frank and Barbara Boxer go, but it doesn't appear likely.

If you mean Ted Kennedy, as a Senator, his "district" was the entire state. When Brown won that election, I saw the Brown-Coakley breakdowns by house district, within the state. I am 99% sure that Barney Frank's congressional district voted for Scott Brown. And that's what I don't get. How can ANYONE vote for Scott Brown and Barney Frank...

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

Also keep in mind who is doing the polling.
We all know that results can be screwed with to benefit whoever's party paid of the poll, like paying someone to tell you what a great guy you are, so you can say "See, someone thinks I'm a great guy!"

The only numbers that matter are the ones that the dems LOSE by next week!
