WBUR Poll: MA - SENATE - Warren Leads Brown By 5 Points

October 24, 2012

BOSTON — A WBUR poll of 516 likely Massachusetts voters finds Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren leading Republican U.S. Sen Scott Brown, 48 to 43 percent.

The poll, conducted Oct. 21-22 by the MassINC Polling Group, has a 4.4 percent margin of error.

‘Meaningful Change’

The last time pollster Steve Koczela surveyed voters for WBUR earlier this month, he found Scott Brown ahead by four points.

“The last poll that we did happened to coincide with would have to be described as the worst week of the entire campaign for Democrats,” Koczela said. “It was right after the first presidential debate, where President Obama gave what would have to be described as a pretty lackluster performance.

“When you go from a four-point lead for one candidate to a five-point lead for another candidate, it is a meaningful change, definitely,” Koczela said.

1. This is great news

When the same polling outfit shows such a big change over time I think its clear to see where the momentum is.

As a Mass resident this will be the icing on my Obama victory cake!
