BOSTON A new poll is giving an edge to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren in the state’s volatile U.S. Senate race.
The Suffolk University and WHDH-TV poll released Tuesday shows Warren favored by 53 percent of likely general election voters, compared with 46 percent for Brown. That’s outside the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
The survey of 600 likely Massachusetts general election voters was conducted Oct. 25-28.
On Monday The Boston Globe released a poll showing Brown and Warren in a dead heat. That poll showed each candidate receiving the support of 47 percent of those polled, including voters who are undecided but said which candidate they are leaning toward.
Among the Globe poll’s likely voters, Brown received 45 percent, compared with 43 percent for Warren, well within the poll’s margin of error.
