Elizabeth Warren campaign rally
MassINC for WBUR (PDF). 2/6-2/9 Likely voters. MoE +/- 4.4% (8/30-9/1 results):
Elizabeth Warren (D): 46 (35)
Scott Brown (R-inc): 43 (44)
Undecided: 11 (18)
This is the first MassInc poll on the campaign since Elizabeth Warren declared her candidacy for the Senate in mid-September, and only the third since early October (see here and here for all MA-Sen polls). Goal ThermometerSo, while Warren turning a nine-point deficit into a three-point lead is excellent news, and while this poll does provide more evidence that Warren is currently ahead, the relative dearth of polling means there is still a lot of uncertainty about the state of this campaign.

Further, despite her narrow lead, there are indications  that the barrage of negative advertising against Warren has taken a toll. Both Scott Brown and Warren are viewed unfavorably by 29 percent of the Massachusetts electorate, but 50 percent hold a favorable view of Brown, compared to only 39 percent for Warren.

So the bottom line is this: Warren is probably still in the lead, but the negative attacks against her are keeping it close. She needs your help to stay ahead.

Please, contribute $5 to Elizabeth Warren on Orange to Blue.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
