Globe Poll: Brown Up By 2 Over Warren

The Boston Globe's latest poll shows Republican Senator Scott Brown with a two-point lead over Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren. That difference is well within the poll's 4.1 percent margin of error.

Brown leads Warren 45 percent to 43 percent in the poll. That's a big change from the Globe's September survey, when Warren was up by five, 43-38. 

The candidates each received multiple endorsements by Massachusetts daily newspapers last week. Brown received nods from the Boston Herald, Cape Cod Times and Quincy Patriot Ledger. Warren, meanwhile, took home endorsements from the Boston Globe and MetroWest Daily News.

Warren leads in polling averages calculated by both the conservative-leaning Real Clear Politics and liberal-leaning Talking Points Memo. As of midday Monday, however, neither tracking graphic included the new Globe poll.
