Mass Insight poll: Elizabeth Warren edging Scott Brown by 4 points in Senate race

Wednesday, October 03, 2012, 5:30 PM

The Mass Insight poll conducted from Sept. 25-30, took place before the candidates squared off this week in their second of four scheduled televised debates.

The survey concludes that while Warren is leading overall, Brown remains in the good graces of more independent voters in Massachusetts, a category in which he towers over Warren by 12 points, 51-39 percent. The junior senator's overall favorability rating is also higher than Warren's, 55-51 percent.

Fifty-two percent of those surveyed said that Massachusetts needs to elect a Democrat to help prevent the Senate from falling under control of the national Republican Party. At the same time, 40 percent said that "having a moderate Republican senator is good for Massachusetts and the country."

1. That doesn't say much for the Independents in

Mass.

Hope the results are even better for Elizabeth after this second debate.

NewsFlash.. Scott Brown is not a "moderate".

Thanks TroyD

2. It's been disappointing up until now to see Brown leading with Independents

Hopefully he will lose support with that group in the next series of polls taken post-Debate #2, and his 'Scalia moment'.

5. It seems Warren won the debate by all reasonable accounts

To be up by 4 overall prior to the debate can only be a good thing and her lead should increase by the time the next poll is out. The "I'm not your student" remark was completely unprofessional and the his answer(s) to the Supreme Court question made him look uninformed.
