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   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

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!
