Brown Edges Warren in New Poll
It's been a poll-filled week for the Massachusetts Senate race -- but while several polls have showed Democratic nominee Elizabeth Warren leading GOP Sen. Scott Brown, the latest shows the incumbent edging his opponent.
Brown leads Warren 49 percent to 45 percent in the UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll -- a lead within the poll's margin of error.
A WBUR-FM poll released Wednesday had Warren leading Brown, 47 percent to 42 percent. A Suffolk University/WHDH-TV poll released Tuesday showed Warren leading Brown 48 percent to 44 percent. And a poll conducted by Western New England University that was released Sunday gave Warren the lead over Brown, at 50 percent to 44 percent.
The poll shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney 59 percent to 36 percent in Massachusetts -- a smaller lead than other recent polls have shown.
