Elizabeth Warren Tied With Scott Brown In Latest Poll

 

A new poll has consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren neck-and-neck with incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) proving just how much her message of defending the middle class is resonating with likely voters.

The poll was conducted by the University of Massachusetts-Lowell and the Boston Herald and has the two candidates in a statistical tie.

While national Democrats are chomping at the bit for a Brown-Warren match-up, she still needs to clear the Democratic primary first. Early indications are that she could do so easily. Warren is currently polling at 36 percent of likely primary voters while none of her potential rivals poll above 5 percent.

Warren isn’t Brown’s only possible problem. Those same polls have him trailing against two Democrats who have said they have no interest in challenging Brown–Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick leads Brown by a 43 to 36 percent margin while former Rep. Joseph Kennedy II leads Brown 45 to 37 in a hypothetical match-up.

Despite these seemingly bad numbers for Brown, his job approval rating remains strong, especially for incumbent Republicans, at 53 percent. Even thirty-eight percent of Democrats gave Brown favorable marks.

It is too early to call the Massachusetts race a bell-weather, but both Republicans and Democrats should pay close attention to the momentum of the Warren campaign. She has focused on a singular message of defending the middle class from Wall Street robber barons. And it appears to be paying off.
