A new poll of the Massachusetts Senate race confims the results of the last several polls: Incumbent Republican Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are locked in a tie, at 46 percent apiece. From PPP:
PPP's newest poll on the Massachusetts Senate race finds it dead even, with Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown both at 46%. Warren's now been at that exact same 46% mark in three PPP polls in a row dating back to last September. Brown's increased his support from levels of 41% and 44% on those previous two polls.
Brown's numbers have experienced a bit of a resurgence in the last few months. His approval rating is back over 50%, with 51% of voters approving of him to 38% who disapprove. He had been at 45/42 and 44/45 on PPP's last two polls. Brown's approval with independents who have an opinion about him is now better than 2:1 at 60/29. And he's reclaiming some of his crossover support from Democrats with 30% approving of him, up from 23% in March.
