Brown and Warren Neck-And-Neck in New Poll
Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren remain in a neck-and-neck race according to a new Massachusetts Senate poll. Warren edges Brown 40 percent to 38 percent in a poll conducted by the MassINC Polling Group.
Forty-seven percent of registered voters view Warren favorably and 26 percent see her unfavorably. 50 percent of registered voters have a favorable impression of Brown, while 33 percent see him unfavorably. Thirteen percent of voters had never heard of Warren, and 7 percent hadn't heard of the junior senator.
In the previous MassINC poll, conducted in April, 34 percent viewed Warren favorably and 23 percent unfavorably; while 44 percent saw Brown favorably and 31 percent unfavorably.
Considering the April poll was conducted before the controversy over Warren's claimed Native American heritage (and subsequent bad media coverage for her campaign), the candidate should be pleased with the improved favorability and only slightly higher unfavorable numbers.
