First Massachusetts Exit Polls: Brown, Warren ‘Dead Even’

A Massachusetts media source sends along this look at the early exits in the Senate race up there:

We’re hearing the race (between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren) is dead even. Turnout in Boston wards not quite as high as expected (good for Brown) but higher in Lowell and Lawrence (bad for Brown). 

Two years ago midway through Election Day we heard turnout in Democrat areas was way down, leading to panic among the Democrats (in the U.S. House races). They got their act in gear and pulled their voters out by 8 p.m. — so don’t count on anything holding up yet.

But Brown is hanging in there.
