Scott Brown Senate

March 8, 2012 by staff 

Scott Brown Senate, Former White House financial reform adviser Elizabeth Warren entered the Massachusetts Senate race to much fanfare late last year, quickly forcing her would-be rivals out of the Democratic primary, and giving incumbent Senator Scott Brown (R) reason to sweat.

But the first few months of the campaign have given way to poll numbers that suggest this race will still be one of the key ones to watch in 2012 — and that Brown does indeed have a good shot at re-election.

Brown was elected to the Senate in a special election in January 2010, following the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy, in a stunning upset against Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley. However, his challenge in 2012 remains that he is a Republican senator in a deep-blue state, which is expected to vote Democratic by a wide margin in the presidential race — for example, a recent Rasmussen poll gave Obama a 55%-38% lead over the state’s former Governor Mitt Romney. So Brown will need a lot of ticket-splitters.

Soon after her campaign rollout, Warren caught up to Brown in early polls, and then overtook with a lead in the fall. But going into the new year, Brown has since overtaken Warren and leads in the polls once again — such as a 9-point lead in a Suffolk poll, and a 5-point lead with Rasmussen.
