Election 2012

Brown-Warren Race a Dead Heat

The incumbent Republican is up 45-43 over Elizabeth Warren in the election for the remainder of his term

A new Boston Globe poll shows the race between Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in a dead heat, with ample opportunity for both candidates to win the nation's most expensive Senate race eight days from now.

The survey indicates Brown holds a razor-thin 45 percent to 43 percent lead over Warren among likely voters, well within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Brown's lead evaporates, with 47 percent for each candidate, when voters who are undecided are asked which candidate they are leaning toward.
