Poll: Majority In Mass. Approve Of Sen. Brown

A new poll finds that more than of half of Massachusetts voters have a favorable opinion of Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and believe he deserves to be re-elected.

The poll released Monday by Western New England College also showed that most of Brown's potential Democratic challengers are not well known among voters at this time.

Fifty-two percent of the 472 registered voters surveyed by telephone from March 6-10 said Brown deserved to be re-elected in November 2012, while 28 percent said he did not.

The rest had no opinion or did not answer.

Brown's job approval rating was 57 percent - on par with Democratic Sen. John Kerry and slightly above Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick.

The poll's margin of error was 4.5 percent.

This program aired on March 14, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
