New Poll Shows Brown With 8-Point Lead Over Warren

BOSTON (CBS) – A new poll shows Sen. Scott Brown has a sizable lead over his main Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports.

The poll by Western New England University has Brown leading Warren by eight points in the U.S. Senate race.

More than 500 registered voters were questioned for the survey. Brown received 49 percent of their support, while Warren got 41 percent.

Ten percent of the voters were undecided.

“Independent voters tend to decide these races. They’re the largest block of voters in the state, and among independent voters, Brown has a lead of 58-29 percent,” said Tim Vercellotti, the director of polling at Western New England University

However, there’s a lot of wiggle room in the latest poll. It also finds that 31 percent of voters said they may change their minds before Election Day.
