New Poll Shows Warren with her Biggest Lead of the Campaign

A new poll from Public Policy Polling gives Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren a nine point lead over Senator Scott Brown.


In a campaign that has been too close to call, a new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Elizabeth Warren with a clear lead in the race to represent Massachusetts in the Senate.

The poll, taken between October 15 and 16 on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters, has Warren leading Brown 53 percent to 44 percent. The poll consisted of 705 likely voters from Massachusetts. The margin of error is 3.7%

Also taking a hit in the poll was Brown's approval rating that fell to 46 percent. 45 percent of those polled disapproved of the senator's job performance.

Warren however, has enjoyed an increase in her favorable numbers. With 52 percent of those polled having a favorable view of Warren, the Democratic candidate for Senate now enjoys a difference of plus nine percent between her favorable and unfavorable numbers. 43 percent of those polled had an unfavorable rating of Warren and five percent were unsure.

While Warren has not had trouble leading with women, she now enjoys a 50 percent to 48 percent lead among men. With women, Warren leads 55 percent to 40 percent.

In the Presidential election, President Barack Obama leads former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romeny 57 percent to 39 percent.

Now is a good time to wake the rest of the state up. Thank God folks are moving toward Warren vote the issues not the person. If Scott is so independent then why not run as one? Answer is because he is a true Republican ! In every way. Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican Scott Brown Republican

Yes he is a Republican. And I understand that Warren's mother actually told her that she "drove a Cherokee here from Delaware". I am so sorry that you Taxachusetts Dems have to blame somebody, anybody for the failures in this state, except the people who are actually runnin (i.e. ruining) things.
