Warren Passes Brown In New Poll

Elizabeth Warren holds a slight lead over incumbent Scott Brown in Massachusetts’ highly-watched Senate race, according to a new survey from Public Policy Polling.

The poll, conducted between September 13th and 16th among 876 likely voters in the state, shows Warren at 48 percent and Brown at 46 percent.

Warren’s newfound lead represents a major shift in the race. In a poll conducted by the same firm last month, the Democratic candidate trailed by five points.

According to Public Policy Polling, the shift may represent fear of a Republican controlled Senate and not a dislike of Brown. 55 percent of likely voters still approve of Brown’s performance in the upper chamber, but, by a 53 to 36 percent margin, the majority Massachusetts voters say they would like to see Democrats continue to control the Senate.
