Prof. Jacobson recently said “May a thousand Martha Coakleys bloom in the Democratic Party.”

As a Massachusetts resident, I’d like to second that statement.

The Republican Governors Association recently put together the ultimate Coakley blooper reel.

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon reported:

Hilarious RGA Ad Shows Martha Coakley ‘Stumbling’ to Campaign Finish

Democratic Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley’s numerous missteps and cringeworthy moments are captured in a new ad from the Republican Governors Association.

In one exchange, Coakley repeatedly dodged a question on whether she would raise fees in lieu of raising taxes and was asked by a moderator if she would pledge not to raise them. When her Republican opponent Charlie Baker promised he wouldn’t, Coakley said, “Then I’m not going to raise fees either.”

In another, Coakley was booed by a debate audience when she answered “I don’t know” to a direct, yes-or-no question about whether illegal immigrants should get driver’s licenses in the commonwealth. When Baker was asked, he immediately answered, “No.”

This is painful to watch:

The Boston Globe’s most recent poll has Republican Charlie Baker ahead by 7 points.

The Real Clear Politics average has Baker ahead by 3.2 points.
