Analyst: Warren's Lead In WBUR Poll Not A Safe One

Download Audio

The race for the U.S. Senate is still tight, but a new WBUR poll out Wednesday shows Democrat Elizabeth Warren is back in the lead.

The latest survey of 516 likely Massachusetts voters (PDFs — topinecrosstabs), conducted by MassINC, shows Warren ahead of incumbent U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, 48 to 43 percent. The poll has a 4.4 percent margin of error.

It's a reversal of the WBUR poll out two weeks ago, which showed Brown leading Warren by four points.

Democratic analyst Dan Payne and Republican analyst Todd Domke joined WBUR’s Morning Edition for talk about the race at this point, less than two weeks before Election Day.

This program aired on October 24, 2012.
