In a campaign that has been too close to call, a new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Elizabeth Warren with a clear lead in the race to represent Massachusetts in the Senate.
The poll, taken between October 15 and 16 on behalf of the League of Conservation Voters, has Warren leading Brown 53 percent to 44 percent. The poll consisted of 705 likely voters from Massachusetts. The margin of error is 3.7%
Also taking a hit in the poll was Brown's approval rating that fell to 46 percent. 45 percent of those polled disapproved of the senator's job performance.
Warren however, has enjoyed an increase in her favorable numbers. With 52% of those polled having a favorable view of Warren, the Democratic candidate for Senate now enjoys a difference of plus nine percent between her favorable and unfavorable numbers. 43 percent of those polled had an unfavorable rating of Warren and five percent were unsure.
While Warren has not had trouble leading with women, she now enjoys a 50 percent to 48 percent lead among men. With women, Warren leads 55 percent to 40 percent.
In the Presidential election, the poll found President Barack Obama leading former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romeny 57 percent to 39 percent.
