(NECN: Alysha Palumbo, Dorchester, Mass.) - "Rita, good morning, it's Martha Coakley, how are you?" said Coakley on the phone with a voter. Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley is spending the last nine days of this campaign trying to strengthen her base and bring undecided voters on board. Sunday she took aim directly at Republican candidate Scott Brown. "Either Scott Brown doesn't understand what's at stake, or he doesn't want voters to know where he stands," said Coakley. A new Boston Globe poll out Sunday shows Martha Coakley leading Scott Brown by 15 percentage points, but Brown's campaign points to a more recent poll by Public Policy Polling out of North Carolina that actually shows him leading by one percentage point. State Senator Scott Brown said, "I've been up, I've been down, polls are polls, I've never ever listened to them, the poll that I have is being around here and having everyone come up to me unsolicited and say they're voting for me." Brown took his campaign to the tailgaters at Foxborough Sunday, stressing the three issues he thinks are most important to the people of the Commonwealth. "There's basically taxes, terrorism and health care, those are the things that people think about on an everyday basis," said Brown. Health care remains the hottest topic in this race -- specifically whether Martha Coakley could be the 60th vote in favor of the overhaul bill or Scott Brown could be the 41st vote opposing it. But what has stirred up concern in Brown's campaign is a recent comment by interim Senator Paul Kirk that he would vote for the health care bill even if Brown captured the seat. Brown said, "It made me sick to my stomach when I heard they were going to delay my seating." Coakley says she believes whichever candidate wins should be and will be sworn in as soon as possible. "There's no suggestion other than Scott Brown's that there would be a stalling," said Coakley. Meanwhile, Independent candidate Joe Kennedy is still fighting for every vote. "You always have a chance to win it because you don't know what is between now and next week," said Kennedy. With a projected five percent of the vote in the latest Globe poll, Kennedy says it's very difficult in the current system to be a third party candidate. Kennedy said, "No matter what the outcome is next week, I will have a greater percentage per dollar than either of the other candidates." The Special Election for the Senate seat is January 19th.
