A just-released Western New England University poll finds that bold progressive Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren leads Sen. Scott Brown (R) among likely voters:

Warren leads Brown 50 percent to 45 percent among likely voters in a Western New England University pollAi??conducted for the Springfield Republican newspaper and Masslive.com.Ai??The Democratai??i??s lead is mostly unchanged from an early September poll showing her leading Brown 50 percent to 44 percent. Other recent polls have mostly shown Warren with a single-digit lead over Brown.

Warren maintaining her lead is likely at least partially explained by the fact that voters are beginning to wake up to Brown’s extreme pro-corporate positions. As one example, in his most recent debate with Warren, Brown admitted that his “model” Supreme Court Justice is the far-right figure Antonin Scalia — who has all but embraced the corporate dominance of American democracy as a matter of “free speech.”

The right is growing increasingly desperate, and that’s why super lobbyist Grover Norquist just dropped $162,000 into the race to help Brown. Help Warren win her race, click here to chip in a few dollars to her campaign.
