|3. Polling shows race still tied
Two polls came out this weekend in the U.S. Senate race. The first was by Western New England University which showed Elizabeth Warren with a 6 point lead. The poll was started on the night of Barack Obama's speech to the Democratic National Committee. The pollsters claim this did not skew the results, which can be viewed here.
Public Policy Polling which, despite being a Democratic firm, has very good polling. Shows the race remains essentially tied. With Warren showing a two point lead. The poll can be viewed here.
There will be a Suffolk Poll released tonight at 11 PM during the 7News nightcast.
4. Brown-Warren polling good for our legislative candidates
Our strongest legislative candidates are in areas where Scott Brown is expected to outperform the statewide average. The recent polling released shows that trend is likely to continue. As GoLocal Worcester reports, Brown is maintaining a significan lead in Central Massachusetts, where our best chances continue to lie.
In Central Mass, however, Brown still commands a sizable lead of 50-38, with 12 percent of those surveyed still undecided on the highly-contested Senate race.
The strong support for Brown in the region is in line with his performance during the 2010 special election in which he defeated Attorney General Martha Coakley to succeed the late Ted Kennedy in representing the Commonwealth in Washington.
