Poll: Mass. Senate Race Remains Virtual Dead Heat

A new poll is showing the Massachusetts Senate race continues to be a dead heat.

The Boston Globe poll released Monday shows Republican incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren received the support of 47 percent of those polled, including voters who are undecided but said which candidate they are leaning toward.

Among the poll's likely voters Brown received 45 percent compared with 43 percent for Warren, well within the poll's margin of error.

The poll reflects just how tight the race remains. With a week to go until Election Day, neither candidate has been able to command a clear lead.

The poll of 583 likely voters was conducted from Wednesday through Sunday by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
