Sen. Brown: I'm Not Worried About Poll Numbers

Sen. Scott Brown isn't worrying about a new poll of Massachusetts voters showing nearly equal support for him and Harvard law professor Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat in the 2012 Senate race.

Brown said Monday that the election is more than a year away and he's focusing on what people care most about — creating jobs.

The UMass Lowell-Boston Herald poll showed Brown getting 41 percent of the vote and Warren receiving 38 percent, within the poll's margin of error. The poll also showed 52 percent of Massachusetts voters have a favorable view of Brown.

Asked about the 59 percent of those polled who said they were dissatisfied or angry at Republican policies, Brown said he was also "disgusted" by Washington politics.

Brown said it's time to put aside partisan politics and individual agendas.
