Warren Leads Brown For Massachusetts' U.S. Senate Seat

Elizabeth Warren explains the need to hold financial institutions accountable, and responds to accusations that banking regulations are "socialism."

A new poll 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 -- in the race for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat.

Scott Brown's approval remains below 50 percent, which usually means difficulty for an incumbent, especially this far out from Election Day.

While Brown leads Warren among independents by 18 points that is likely not enough to make up for the state's overwhelming number of registered Democratic voters.

Warren leads heavily among women and among people earning under $100,000, which the pollsters say is evidence that Warren's appeal to the working and middle class is resonating.
