Let's hear it for statistics!

From TPM:
Congrats to ... the Polls

It's definitely small print. But it would be wrong to end the evening without noting that the polls were pretty close to the mark. We maintained trended averages of the two way and three ways polls of this race.

In the three way polls, the trended average was Brown 50.8%, Coakley 45.3%. Pretty close, with a touch more undecided breaking to Coakley. In the two ways, it was Brown 52%, Coakley 42.5%. That nailed Brown's result. And, interestingly, the undecided broke for Coakley.
