Brown v. Warren

The race for the the U.S. Senate is heating up here in Massachusetts with incumbent Scott Brown (R) fighting to hold off challenger Elizabeth Warren (D). The race has gotten down and dirty, with Brown challenging Warren's claims to be 1/32nd Cherokee and Warren slamming Brown for being a Wall Street yes-man.

Warren started out far behind Senator Brown in most polls, but closed the gap over the last few months, even taking the lead at certain points. The latest poll released has the two locked in a virtual tie for the Senate seat in what is expected to go down as the most expensive Senate race in American history.

Now, take a look at what all the latest polls are saying about this historic race.

Mass Inc. Polling Group

Poll Dates: April 25-28

Brown: 41%

Warren: 43%

Undecided or Other: 16%

Inside the Numbers:

The Mass Inc. poll did not go into detail breaking down the demographics of those polled, but did delve into their opinions of other Massachusetts and U.S. officials. What Mass Inc. found, not unexpectedly, was that the voters held largely favorable opinions of Democratic politicians Governor Deval Patrick and President Barack Obama. But, it also found that Commonwealth voters were not as quick to express these opinions for Elizabeth Warren. She received only a 17% "very favorable" rating, compared to 26% for Patrick and 41% for Obama.
