  •  I went over to PollTracker (21+ / 0-)

    and set the filter to show just Western New England College polls.  The results are pretty interesting.  Such as that May poll cited in the diary is the first one in which the pollster found a lead for Warren.  In March 2012, WNEC gave Brown an 8 point lead, at 49-41; in October 2011 it was Brown by 5, at 47-42; and back in March 2011 they had Brown by 17, at 51-34.

    In other words, they've been one of the more pessimistic polling organizations regarding Warren's chances.  For them to give her a big lead at this point is significant.

      Convention hit the right note. There couldnt be a clearer choice as to the differences in values amongst the parties. Warren's speech and high visibility there may have resonated with people in MA who do think that government plays an important roll in our lives, whether it be investment in education (ma public schools often ranked #1 in the country-and if MA was own country would rank near top internationally too) investment in infrastructure, research and technology, green energy, safety, health insurance, and is very liberal and accepting marriage, pro choice,  etc.

      Her speech and her theme that night nailed it...differs greatly from Brown's ideology and his voting record. Notice Brown didnt speak or have a high profile at the RNC convention. Just an image photo op of his daughter singing. Style over substance...that is all Brown is..a marketing creation.

      The Plutocratic States of America, the best government the top 1% and corporations can buy. We are the 99%-OWS.
