Brown/Warren Polls Show Conflicting Result in Final Weekend Before Election

Two new polls released on Sunday show that the Senate race between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown could still go either way.

With a day to go before the 2012 General Election, new polls released Sunday show that the race between Elizabeth Warren and Senator Scott Brown is still a toss up.

In a new poll of registered voters from the Springfield Republican and Western New England University, Warren leads Brown 50 percent to 46 percent while a UMass-Lowell/Boston Herald poll gives Brown a 49-48 percent lead among likely voters.

In the Republican/WNEU poll of 535 voters, 53 percent of likely voters had a favorable view of Brown while 36 percent had an unfavorable view. For Warren, 51 percent of likely voters had a favorable view and 40 percent had an unfavorable view.

Without leaners, Warren leads 48-45 percent. The margin of error is 3.9 percent.

In the UMass-Lowell/Herald poll of 956 registered voters, Warren leads Brown 49-47 percent when leaners are added to the poll. The margin of error is 4.1 percent.

While 54 percent of registered voters have a favorable view of Brown in the poll, 39 percent said they have an unfavorable opinion of him. The poll shows a 10 point increase in Brown's unfavorable rating since the Herald's last poll in September.

When asked about Warren, 50 percent of those polled view her favorably and 42 percent have an unfavorable opinion.

When asked if their vote could change before the election, 10 percent said they may change their mind.
