So far, with just over a third of the precincts reporting, Coakley's losing to Brown 52%-47%. She's cleaning up in the biggest cities. Remember, though, that Boston has 254 precincts and only 23 have reported in. Coakley's winning 6550 to Brown's 5022 in the state capital.
Bottom line, if Coakley loses Boston, she loses the election because she's not going to win in the smaller towns.
