Poll: Brown And Warren Locked In A Dead Heat

A new Boston Globe poll released Saturday shows that a weeks-long dispute over her claims of Native American heritage has not derailed Elizabeth Warren’s bid to unseat incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) in the Massachusetts Senate race. 

The poll of 651 likely voters, which was conducted May 25-31, shows Brown with a thin lead over Warren, 39 percent to 37 percent.  That’s well within the survey’s margin of error of 3.8 percent and further confirmation that, despite the controversy that has dogged Warren’s campaign as of late, the Massachusetts Senate race remains one of the most competitive in the country.  

The TPM Poll Average currently shows Brown with a narrow lead over Warren.
