* If the Baker campaign tore themselves away from planning Paul Loscocco’s game-changing endorsement event long enough to coordinate a decent GOTV operation;

* If the local tea parties are for real;

* If Beacon Hill has anything to be worried about;

* If Deval Patrick’s charm offensive worked;

* If elderly voters are that easy to scare about Social Security;

* If harshly-negative ads work, or backfire;

* If Massachusetts is surrounded by a 60-foot high wall that keeps the national wave at bay;
