Elizabeth Warren Leads Scott Brown in New Poll

By Martin Finucane, The Boston Globe

21 March 12

 

emocrat Elizabeth Warren holds a slim lead in her battle against Republican Scott Brown for US Senate in Massachusetts, a Democratic polling company has found.

The new poll released today by Public Policy Polling found Warren leading Brown, 46 percent to 41 percent. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.

Several recent nonpartisan polls have shown Brown ahead of Warren.

The poll found Brown would win 89 percent of Republican voters, 17 percent of Democrat voters, but only 48 percent of independents, a far cry from the 64 percent he won in his January 2010 special election race with Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley.

Polls conducted in late January and in February had found Brown with a solid lead - 10 points in the Opinion Dynamics poll conducted for Mass Insight Global Partnerships and 9 points in a Suffolk University poll.

 

Comments   

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

Elizabeth Warren is a clearly superior being in so many laudable ways.
She would truly serve the interests of all the people she is elected to represent, regardless of the office to which she is elected .

It is the light of her untarnished integrity and unbribed soul that frightens the oligarchs.

Barring anything "illegal" or any miscreant behavior on the part of Mrs. Warrens opposition party - and knowing that the citizens of Mass. to be the inteligent beings they are ... Elizabeth Warren will, after the election, be attaching the title of "U.S. Senator" to her name - and her door!
