Poll Watch: Mass Insight Global Partnerships Massachusetts 2012 Senatorial Survey

MassInsight Massachusetts 2012 Senate Poll

Likely Voters
  • Elizabeth Warren (D) 48%
  • Scott Brown (R) 44%
Favorable / Unfavorable {Net}

Among Adults
  • Scott Brown 55% / 36% {+19%}
  • Elizabeth Warren 51% / 39% {+12%}
Survey of 450 adults, including 329 likely voters, was conducted September 25-30, 2012 by Opinion Dynamics.  The margin of error is +/- 4.6 percentage points among all adults; +/- 5.4 percentage points among likely voters.

Inside the numbers: 
Fifty-two percent of registered voters, part of a larger sample size in the same poll, thought it was more important to send a Democrat to the Senate "to help ensure that it doesn't fall under the control of Republicans" than it was to have a moderate Republican senator. Forty percent chose the latter option.
GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who governed the state from 2003 to 2007, is less popular. Fully 60 percent hold negative opinions of him, just 36 percent positive ones. President Obama has a 62 percent/35 percent favorable/unfavorable split.
