    These numbers will change a lot once the Democratic nominee gets known.  The early polling numbers for Elizabeth Warren were quite daunting as well:

    WNEU 3/10/12 - Brown 51, Warren 34
    PPP 6/5/12 - Brown 47, Warren 32

    She ended up winning by 8.  I honestly think we will win this race, though perhaps by less than 8 since it is a special election without presidential turnout.

    •  The differnce here is time (0+ / 0-)

      Warren had a year + to campaign. This would be a special election in 90-120 days. That makes a huge difference in organization, fundraising, and name recognition.

      Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

        these polls were taken 5 and 8 months before the election, so she only had that long after these polls.
