Boston.com is reporting that a Suffolk University/WHDH poll gives Scott Brown a commanding lead in the US Senate Contest.
The Suffolk University/7News poll, which was released late Thursday night, asked 600 likely voters across Massachusetts which candidate they would support in a head-to-head matchup, if the election was held today. The poll has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.
Forty-nine percent of respondents said they would vote for Brown while 40 percent said they would back Warren, according to the poll.
Separately, 45 percent of respondents said that Brown deserved to be reelected, 39 percent said he did not, and 16 percent were undecided.
The most telling part of the poll is the strong majority of respondents who said it was good for the state to have balance in the Senatorial delegation. 60 percent of respondents said having Senators of different parties was good for Massachusetts.
This is the first major poll of likely voters taken in this race. I know I’ve had my issues in the past with Suffolk Polls, but they’ve been right, and my issues seem to have been unfounded.
This is going to be a race, and Scott Brown can win it.
