Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren leads Republican Sen. Scott Brown, in two polls released Thursday for the Massachusetts Senate race.
Warren is ahead, 50 percent to 44 percent, according to Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. The survey of 1,051 likely voters was conducted Oct. 9 through 11, and has 3 percent margin of error. Warren also leads 49 percent to 47 percent, according to Rasmussen. The survey of 500 likely voters was conducted Oct. 10, and has a 4.5 percent margin of error.
From PPP's analysis: "The biggest thing that continues to make it very hard for Brown to win this race is that 52% of voters in the state want Democrats to have control of the US Senate to 35% who want the Republicans in control. Warren is now winning the Democratic vote 82/13, erasing most of the crossover support that Brown had earlier in the year."
The PollTracker Average shows Warren ahead, 49.1 percent to 44.6 percent.
