Warren edging Brown in new poll

A new poll by the Western New England University Polling Institute and the Springfield Republican newspaper shows Democrat Elizabeth Warren with a five-point lead over Senator Scott Brown, but the survey also found that a greater number of likely voters view both candidates unfavorably in the final weeks of the race.

Warren leads Brown 50 percent to 45 percent, according to the survey — the seventh of eight polls in the past month that found Warren with a lead in one of the most competitive Senate races in the country. But compared with a previous poll taken by Western New England University three weeks ago, the negative marks for both candidates have jumped as the campaign has taken on an increasing heated tone in the final stretch.
