Massachusetts: Scott Brown Up in New Senate Poll

Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R) led presumptive Democratic nominee Elizabeth Warren by 9 points in a new poll of registered voters. Forty-nine percent of those surveyed said they would vote for Brown, while 40 percent said they would vote for Warren. Nine percent were undecided.

Among independents, a voting bloc likely to decide the tossup contest, Brown led Warren 60 percent to 28 percent.
