Scott Brown enjoys an enormous lead in the polls against all Democratic comers:
Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., leads Democrat Elizabeth Warren by a 53-28 percent margin among likely 2012 voters, according to a poll conducted for the senator and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Matched against Warren, who was passed over for the top job at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the face of GOP resistance and is considering a Senate run, Brown leads by a 25-point margin, with 18 percent undecided. He leads Newton Mayor Setti Warren, 57-21, and City Year co-founder Alan Khazei, 54-24.
Numbers like these suggest the election is already over and Scott Brown will cruise to re-election. Best thing to do is focus resources, time, and energy elsewhere. Scotto doesn’t even have to worry about the occasional faux-moderate vote – he can pretty much dive as far right-wing as he likes without concern of political consequence. Nothing to see here.
