Brown retakes lead from Warren in new poll
Boston Globe ^ | October 9, 2012 | Noah Bierman

Posted on 10/09/2012 6:59:49 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

US Senator Scott Brown has regained a lead over Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren in a new WBUR-MassINC poll, after a string of polls showed Warren with the lead. The poll is the first since Brown and Warren’s second debate at the University of Massachusetts Lowell on Oct. 1.

The telephone poll of 502 likely voters, taken Oct. 5 through Oct. 7, showed Brown leading 47 percent to 43 percent, within the 4.4 percent margin of error. The lead drops to 3 percentage points — 48 percent to 45 percent — with the inclusion of respondents who say they have not fully made up their mind but are leaning to one candidate.

Osama Obama’s expected to take 66% of the vote here next month.IMO that's a reasonable expectation.If that proves to be the case I fear that Brown would be wise to have the moving van on speed dial.

Retakes the lead??? You mean Warren was leading???

What is wrong with Massachusettsians???

Of course, this coming from someone who lives in a state that will most likely re-elect Dianne Feinstein.

But still!

Yes, she has led in more than one recent poll. She has been called a victim and after one debate a female reporter said her (the reporter's) friends were upset Brown used words such as “she” and “her.” Typical Dem nonsense. She also has the support of the ultimate smug politician Deval Patrick and other state leaders.

So, if Warren wins, she’d be the first white “woman of color” elected to the Senate? Another “historical minute” from the DemocRAT Party.

That’s always when you know you’ve won against the Libs. They start crying about how “smug” the Republican is or that the Republican is a “bully” (like Christie).

I have a friend who was in Boston yesterday, told me he saw a bus painted yellow with a huge union logo and the words “Firefighters for Warren.”

The mayor of Boston last week said all that matters is “what's in your heart” when that issue was raised; therefore, that should end all discussion to promote government-sponsored minority interests.

Romney wins 44 states. Brown gets 54 percent against Warren.

Ah,an astute question.In a nutshell....you know the 47% to which Romney recently referred? Well here it's 60% and has been for years.And about half of the remaining 40% have trust funds.

Possible,I suppose...but highly unlikely.

Brown gets 54 percent against Warren.

Have you ever been to Massachusetts?

He's certainly no Alabama Republican but I assure you that an *Alabama* Republican wouldn't have gotten 10% of the vote in that special election,even against the God awful Rat who ran against him.Massachusetts and Alabama,Georgia,Ohio,Wyoming,Texas,Kansas (etc) might as well be on different planets,politically speaking.

Our state legislature is currently 90% Rat and has been for years.Our Governor is the filthiest,slimiest Maoist Rat you could imagine (a long time pal of Osama Obama himself) and most here still have tears in their eyes when the name of the senior Senator from Chappaquiddick is mentioned.

Yup,it's *that* bad here.

FYI,listen to the Mayor of Boston speak for 3 minutes and you'll realize that he has an IQ of 40.With God as my Judge it's true!

Some time ago on FR someone posted a photo taken at a Boston area pub of a large hand-painted sign that read something along the lines of, "No Kennedys admitted or served."

Wish I could find that again.

She wasn’t a white “woman of color” the way Warren is.
