Republican Scott Brown now leads Democrat Martha Coakley in the latest Suffolk University poll of the race to fill the remainder of Ted Kennedy’s Senate term in Massachusetts. The Suffolk poll — a reputable barometer of Massachusetts public opinion — shows Brown up 50 percent to 46 percent. The biggest problem Brown now faces is the possibility that such poll results have awakened a sleeping giant in the form of the Democratic turnout machine. It was reported yesterday that Democratic-aligned groups are now outspending Republicans 2-to-1, a sign that the Democrats’ get-out-the-vote operations won’t look past this race.
