The final poll
from PPP (D) in the Massachusetts Senate race shows Republican Scott Brown with a five-point lead less than 48 hours before voters head to the polls. Brown leads Democrat Martha Coakley 51-46 in the poll, with four percent of respondents undecided.
The PPP poll seems to confirm what political observers and other recent polling has suggested in the final weeks of the race: Brown has the momentum to win, but the race is still to close to call.
PPP polled 1,231 likely voters in Massachusetts over the weekend. The special election to replace Ted Kennedy in the Senate will be held on Jan. 19.
