This morning on MSNBC’s  Morning Joe show, as Chris Matthews reported his conversation with Suffolk University pollster David Paleologos that the GOP’s Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley by “double-digits” in the “Bellweather areas” of Massachusetts, audible gasps of “Oh, my God” are loudly heard on the MSNBC set.

The bellweather areas last night were double digit for Brown so it looks like Brown….But if the Bellweather areas are double-digits for Brown, it’s over.

Of course, Matthews and the MSNBC commentators go on to attribute a pending loss by Coakley to Brown as a vote against health care and not President Obama or his agenda. And…wait for it…they play the age and race cards.

Because the reality is…voters are older, whiter. These are things that are going to play in the favor of the Republican Party.

Right.
