New Poll Shows Warren with her Biggest Lead of the Campaign

A new poll from Public Policy Polling gives Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren a nine point lead over Senator Scott Brown.

In a campaign that has been too close to call, a new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Elizabeth Warren with a clear lead in the race to represent Massachusetts in the Senate.

The poll, taken between Oct. 15 and 16 on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters, has Warren leading Brown 53 percent to 44 percent. The poll consisted of 705 likely voters from Massachusetts. The margin of error is 3.7 percent.

Also taking a hit in the poll was Brown's approval rating that fell to 46 percent. 45 percent of those polled disapproved of the senator's job performance.

Warren however, has enjoyed an increase in her favorable numbers. With 52 percent of those polled having a favorable view of Warren, the Democratic candidate for Senate now enjoys a difference of plus nine percent between her favorable and unfavorable numbers. Forty-three percent of those polled had an unfavorable rating of Warren and five percent were unsure.

While Warren has not had trouble leading with women, she now enjoys a 50 percent to 48 percent lead among men. With women, Warren leads 55 percent to 40 percent.

In the Presidential election, President Barack Obama leads former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romeny 57 percent to 39 percent.

I do not live in mass but cannot refrain from commenting on the ongoing battle and ads against Elizabeth Warren. Anyone that appears to be so effective in all of the bad she has allegedly done against the families and people of mass will uncertainly be the person to work as hard for the citizens of mass. It's a no brainer- given ANY job she has done, she is an extremely hard worker and extremely intelligent person. Scott Brown had to admit a friend had ms warren as a professor and commented that she was a very good teacher as well. I hope she gets in. I only wish she was on the ballot in ri.

And we will be back where we were a few years ago with two Democratic Senators voting straight down their party line. Scott Brown has worked with both sides of the aise and has done an excellent job for the citizen's of MA. While Ms. Warren may be hard worker, she will not be respresenting all of MA citizens.
