Martha Coakley at her rally with former President Clinton

President Obama and former President Clinton have both visited the bay state in the last 48 hours to galvanize support for a seemingly hapless Martha Coakley who has found herself in a tight race for what should have been an easy election victory.

Statewide elections in Massachusetts tend to favor Democratic candidates. That we have a close race in this election with some polls of likely voters showing the Republican a few points ahead is the result of a number of factors:

1. Elections like off year elections and special elections in months other than November usually have a depressed turn out that favors the candidate whose supporters are more energized.

2. The Republican base is unusually energized as a result of all of the lies they have been fed about health care reform.

3. The Democratic base seems disinterested or demoralized.
