Warren Leads in Massachusetts

A new University of Massachusetts Amherst poll finds Elizabeth Warren (D) leading Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) in the race for U.S. Senate, 43% to 39%.

Key finding: "The poll finds Warren is drawing strong support from women, middle-to-low income residents and younger voters. Brown maintains a large lead among Independent voters while Warren is getting overwhelming support from Democratic voters in Massachusetts."

Said political scientist Brian Schaffner: "These numbers could mean trouble for Scott Brown. The race is a dead heat and his support is well under 50 percent, which usually means difficulty for an incumbent, especially this far out from Election Day."
