Massachusetts is just one state, still there’s hope for the nation’s electorate when a centered, intelligent, gutsy woman like Elizabeth Warren can challenge an incumbent senator and on a platform of fighting for the middle class pull ahead this early in the race.
Warren is lighting up the 2012 election year with mega-wattage from the Bay State, and she’s doing it with support drawn primarily from women and people earning below $100,000 per year. Here’s the scoop:
Democrats' bet that former consumer finance watchdog Elizabeth Warren could take down Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) appears to be paying off, as a new poll suggests she is pulling ahead.
The survey by the University of Massachusetts at Amherst finds Warren leading Brown 43 percent to 39 percent -- just within the poll's 4.4 percent margin of error.
