Hooray! Scott Brown, Republican Senator from Massachusetts, is eight points ahead of the Democrat dilettante, Elizabeth Warren, in the latest poll released the other day by Suffolk University. Considered exceedingly vulnerable in the upcoming 2012 election, Brown and his campaign have been working hard to portray Warren as an insulated Ivy League Left-wing loon. And surprisingly, it looks like this strategy is working, despite the fact that Left-leaning loonyism is very much the political norm in the Democrat kingdom of the Kennedy’s.
Of course, it’s very early days yet in the Massachusetts senatorial campaign and Brown has a very hard row to hoe in this uber liberal Bay Colony by the sea. Such a political landscape that is dominated by wealthy Democrats like the Kennedy’s and the Kerry’s and their militant militia of blue-collar union boys is one heck of a big challenge for any Republican to buck, oh so moderate though the candidate may be. But it’s sure nice to know that Brown is giving that Haaaavard Harpy a big run for her liberal money.
A new Suffolk University poll finds Brown leading Elizabeth Warren 49 percent to 40 percent. Additionally, 45 percent of those surveyed said Brown deserves to be re-elected, while 39 percent said he did not and 16 percent were undecided.
Brown also has an approval rating over 50 percent, the poll finds, while Warren’s has only a 35 percent approval rating.
When asked what words came to mind when asked about Warren, most respondents said “liberal” and “Harvard,” which indicates the Republican efforts to brand her as a left-wing elitist have been successful. Daily Caller
