Surveys give Elizabeth Warren a slight edge

Senate rivals dismiss predictions, focus on campaigning as tight race nears end

Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren hit the campaign trail this weekend with a potentially shifting backdrop, as some national political handicappers begin to call Warren the slight favorite.

Several political sites, including the conservative-leaning Rasmussen Reports on Friday and the Washington Post’s Fix blog on Thursday, moved the closely fought contest from “tossup” to “leans Democrat,” as polls giving Warren a slight edge continue to stack up. The Cook Report continues to rate the race a tossup, while the Rothenberg Political Report on Friday moved it from “pure tossup” to ­“tossup/tilt Democrat.”
