Scott Brown Leads in Polling To Replace Kerry

Those fickle Massachusetts voters


Former Sen. Scott Brown has a 20-point lead over the DSCC's preferred candidate in a special election to replace likely incoming Secretary of State John Kerry, according to a poll released Friday.

Brown draws 53 percent of the vote to 31 percent for veteran Rep. Ed Markey, according to the poll from MassINC. Kerry and the DSCC have endorsed Markey for the Senate seat. Markey actually does worse than a generic Democrat, who would draw 36 percent of the vote to Brown's 44 percent.
