Brown with big lead over potential Senate rivals, poll shows

Senator Scott Brown would most likely be back in the Senate if a special election were held today, according to a new poll.

The telephone poll of 500 registered voters, taken by the Mass Inc. Polling Group for WBUR, showed Brown, a Republican, leading a generic Democrat 47 percent to 39 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent. The remaining 15 percent of respondents did not express a preference.
