In a late summer surge, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has jumped to a 5 point lead in a new poll in his race for re-election.
Public Policy Polling places Brown in the lead over his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren 49-44 percent. This is the same poll that placed Warren ahead by 5 points in March.

Maybe he can win and make up for that idiot Akin.
Doesn't Warren get a 5 point freebie for being native american?
For this current election, Brown's been keeping a low profile, letting Elizabeth Warren get on the nerves of the Massachusetts voters. However, in the last 6-8 weeks, I look for a similar Brown blitz. Warren has given him a lot of ammo to use these past few months!
From the “You make me dizzy Mizz Lizzie” collection:
“No, as I said, these are my family stories. I have lived in a family that has talked about Native Americans, talked about tribes since I had been a little girl,” she said. “I still have a picture on my mantel and it is a picture my mother had before that - a picture of my grandfather. And my Aunt Bea has walked by that picture at least a 1,000 times remarked that he - her father, my Papaw — had high cheek bones like all of the Indians do. Because that is how she saw it and your mother got those same great cheek bones and I didn’t. She that thought was the bad deal she had gotten in life.”
“Being Native American has been part of my story, I guess, since the day I was born,” Warren continued.
Yeah, he’ll win. He passes as a “Republican” in the Northeast and ole Warren here has a better chance of opening an Indian casino than beating Brownie.
The faulty theme about winning the Senate depends only on Akin is just silly. Akin’s misspoken words will not be what lets the Dems win in November, but it will be their Marxist policies and bankrupted ideas what will makes them losers.
Her cheekbones do. The rest of her, not so much.
They had the same Marxist policies and bankrupted ideas in 2008.
So the faux Indian might not take the disgraced Kennedy family Senate seat.
I’m glad I lived long enough.
Warren is certainly a liberal loonie legend.
That commie Doonesbury is pimping for her like crazy in the comics.
Would love to see her soundly thrashed on election night.
Would also love for Brown to ask her “Have your adult children used the Native American designation for college admission and scholarships, and job applications? And can you provide copies to verify that?”
They've got ownership of the Federal government this time, and under Obama's Marxist policies, they get to reap and realize the "rewards" in their march towards Marxism. The difference.
Can't trust Indians with ammo.
I like Scott Brown, as much as people complain about the guy, he’s the sort of Republican that can win in the Northeast and while he might not be there for all the issues, he’ll be there on a lot of them. He’s very laidback, disarming and he plays politics like a pro. His big advantage over Warren is that he’s actually from the area, he knows the people, he knows the culture, the traditions, one of the earlier storylines was that he was showing up at various local events, even in area’s where people aren’t likely to vote for him, glad-handing everyone while Warren was nowhere to be seen.
He’s basically giving people no reason to dislike him, even if they oppose him, he’s not polarizing and that is what it takes to win in Massachusetts.
Unless of course you’re a member of an outlaw motorcycle gang. :)
it doesn’t make up for it. It’s still a net loss of one senate seat that was, until a few days ago, locked up for us.
Crying over spilled milk doesn’t clean it up any faster. Republicans will just have to make the other races that much more important.
Akin is only running for 1 out of the 23 Democrat Senate caucus seats that they are defending. I highly doubt that the Dims will hold the Senate no matter how the Missouri Senate race goes, and I don’t think that race is nowhere near being conceded back to the Dims.
Warren is sounding more and more wacko (and like a total obamabot) all the time, and perhaps even the people of MA are getting it!!!!

unfortunately, he represents us and our platform which means we all own him and his position and his comments. he will be an albatross tied around the neck of every republican. The MSM will see to it. guaranteed.
Pat Buchanan, Part II.
you think it’s about misspoken words? it isn’t. You’ll find that out when it’s too late.
Well, that’s a relief. Such a Conservative stalwart on all but the really important issues.
From today’s WaPo:
Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) penned a letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preiebus urging more inclusiveness on the issue of abortion in the party?s 2012 platform. ?Media reports indicate that the Platform Committee will consider draft language opposing a woman?s right to choose and supporting a constitutional amendment banning abortion. I believe this is a mistake because it fails to recognize the views of pro-choice Republicans like myself,? Brown wrote.
Only when the Rs let the narrative be set by the truth challenged Dems.
If you know of a pro-life Republican politician who can win a statewide election in Massachusetts, I’d like to support him too.
the dems largely control the mass media; therefore, they largely control the narrative. This particular narrative ain’t going away.
Beats Teddy Kennedy. The libs think Warren is their next Obama. She must be stopped. I’m all for 100% die-in-the-wool conservative candidate in the states where they are realistically electable, provided they can answer simple questions about their positions without turning themselves into a national joke.
Just don't run a John McCain like campaign and the chances of defeating the Dems increase significantly.
What Massholes do is their business, but to have this weak sister make appeals to the Republican NATIONAl Committee to water down a plank for the whole nation really frosts my a$$.
You beat me to it. My thoughts exactly!
I agree, but it's just useless chatter.
He will move the RNC not one millimeter towards his position.
It helps him appear all mavericky to the squishes he needs to vote for him in Massoftwoshits.
Of course you are correct.
I am amazed at the folks here, those I call the “gloom and doomers” who take any bit of negative info as it is splashed across the lib media and use it to immediately proclaim a disaster.
These arwe people who, if Reuters put out a story from an anonymous source saying a Republican was reported to have farted in Church, would declare the election lost.
There is NO CHANCE, NONE, NADA of a “Conservative” getting elected in that State in the foreseeable future. Politics being what it is you take what you can get and get it anyway you can within the law.
It's more than just numbers in the Senate although they are important. Taking control also means committee chairs, and deciding what and when legislation comes to the floor for a vote.
Do you understand that this is a Conservative Forum?
Do you understand that the current GOP-e leadership in the House and the Senate has entrenched stalwarts as Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Graham, Collins, Snow and others in positions of power as committee chairman?
Do you understand that these people helped establish House and Senate rules that allow them in lame duck sessions to vote in the next sessions leadership positions from the same old pool of compromising and compromised pols?
Do you understand that this throttles the newly elected members and therefore throttles the power of the electorate? That would be us.
Ponder on that and how it relates to effective reform of the situation.
As I said, Massholes can do as they want, but don’t go bragging on Brown or the others. Reflects poor on you.
Finally, you haven’t “beenaround” here long enough for us to figure out who you really are.
See you around.
Brag? I didn't brag about anyone. I simply stated a FACT which I herein restate. A Conservative as you would like will NEVER be elected in a State such as MA at this time. It seems you would rather see Brown defeated and a Dem installed as the Senator even if it means not retaking the Senate.
"Finally, you havent beenaround here long enough for us to figure out who you really are".
LOL, who I am is a guy who has been lurking on this forum since about 1997 as I do on about 15 other political forums. I seldom actually join because as so often happens being judged by how long I have been a member rather than what I have to say causes me to lose patience as well as interest. I joined because this is the most important election in my lifetime and I voted in the 1960 election.
"See you around."
Hopefully not. Small minded one dimensional people bore me to distraction.
