Poll: Scott Brown Up by One

by Betsy Woodruff

Today gives us two pieces of comparatively good news for Scott Brown. First, a UMass Lowell/Herald poll has him up by one point over Elizabeth Warren, 49–48, within the poll’s 4.1 percentage-point margin of error. And second, he won the endorsement of the Boston University Daily Free Press, the state’s largest student newspaper. The editors said Warren seems “disconnected from Western Massachusetts,” and that “people outside of the Boston area find it hard to relate to her.”
