Warren up 6, Obama up 14 in Massachusetts

PPP's newest Massachusetts poll finds two races going in opposite directions- Mitt Romney's cut Barack Obama's lead to its smallest level in the state all year. But at the same time Elizabeth Warren's built her advantage out to the widest margin we've ever found.

Warren leads Scott Brown 50-44. The big change over the last month is that Brown's image is finally starting to take a hit. His approval rating is now a +7 spread at 49/42, down a net 14 points from mid-September when he was at 55/34. There's an increasing sense that he's been more a partisan voice for the national Republican Party (45%) than an independent voice for Massachusetts (44%). That's a 10 point shift from our last poll when voters thought 49/40 that he'd been more of an independent voice.

The biggest thing that continues to make it very hard for Brown to win this race is that 52% of voters in the state want Democrats to have control of the US Senate to 35% who want the Republicans in control. Warren is now winning the Democratic vote 82/13, erasing most of the crossover support that Brown had earlier in the year.

................

In the Presidential race Barack Obama's seeing the same kind of decline in Massachusetts that he is nationally. He leads Mitt Romney by 14 points, 55-41. That's down from an 18 point lead last month, and it's the smallest advantage we've found for him in the state all year. The big shift over the last month in Massachusetts has been among independent voters. They now support Romney 53-40, after giving Obama a 47-44 edge last month.

6. Her performance last night was outstanding

The moderator was excellent, no birther questions & sports talk
It was obvious that Brown was nervous & agitated.

2. The debate did some damage

My boss is a big supporter, but he was really shook up after the debates because Obama kept looking down like he was a kid in school being lectured. I think the Pres was caught off guard for whatever reason.

My boss still supports the President, he is a liberal, but I can see where some of the independents changed their mind.

I dothink the President can change it right back with a strong, take no shit attitude in the coming two debates.

5. When taking notes show your pen to audience

Looking down, particularly on split screen, is a known risk regarding body language. Just lifting your hand so people can see your pen and can realize you are taking notes is about all it takes to mitigate that problem. Nothing big, just casually raise it into view, pause as if thinking, then look down while appearing to make a note.

8. Everybody do not show their pen when taking notes.

I guess in a perfect world that would be the universal case.

7. The President was taking notes, this is why he was looking

down. So many lies were flying out of Romney's mouth, the President was trying to keep up.
I think some people are just repeating what they have heard others say, instead of thinking for themselves.

President Obama's true supporters STILL have his back.
