but due caution, still 18% undecided.

In this Globe story about the poll, we learn that she now leads Scott Brown by 43-38.

This survey is the sixth of eight public polls taken this month that show Warren ahead.
  So we know the trend is in Warren's direction, and the director of the survey notes
“Brown right now is not doing well enough among Democrats to offset the advantage that ­Warren has,” said Smith. “That’s just such a big obstacle to overcome for any Republican candidate” in Massachusetts.
Brown is only drawing 9% of those planning to vote for Obama, while 20% of Obama voters remain undecided in the Senate race.  But remember, the same poll show Obama leading in Massachusetts by at 57-30 margin over Mitt Romney, whose personally approval rate is now a horrid 33-60  (in the state that knows him best, I might add - continuing a pattern seen in the primaries that by and large the more people saw of Romney the less they liked them).

In case you wonder why Brown continues his attacks upon Warren's credibility, including about her Native American heritage, note this paragraph:  

Of those who knew of the controversy, 71 percent said it would have no impact on their vote, while 24 percent said it would make them less likely to support Warren. Notably, 10 percent of Obama’s supporters are among the group who said the controversy makes them less likely to vote for Warren.
Bottom line - advantage Warren, clearly albeit technically within the margin of error (+/- 4 percent) and thus not YET a done deal.,

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.
