Warren Up in Polls, Herald Endorses Brown: Who's Winning?

With Warren holding a small lead in the polls, and Brown getting a key endorsement from the Boston Herald, who do you think has the momentum coming into the final days of the election?

Democrat Elizabeth Warren is up by five points over incumbent Republican Scott Brown in the latest WBUR/MassINC poll of the Massachusetts senate race. That's a near-total reversal of the BUR poll last month, which had Brown up by four on Oct. 9. 

In fact, Warren has been trending upwards in most recent polling. The New York Times' FiveThirtyEight blog has Warren up by four in an average of recent polls. The blog, which uses advanced statistical modeling akin to baseball sabermetrics (think Moneyball) gives Warren an 89 percent chance of winning the election.

But Brown's got some significant energy on his side as well. He's been barnstorming the state with political luminaries like Senator John McCain and today won the Boston herald's endorsement.

The last debate between Brown and Warren will be held a week before election day, Tuesday, Oct. 30.

So what do you think? Who has the momentum coming into the final two weeks of the election? Do the polls in liberal-leaning Massachusetts mean anything to you, or will Brown's high-profile support sway the electorate? Give us your prediction in the comments below!

actually Richard, she said she supports allowing them to PAY for instate tuition, not get freebees. Also goes into approvals similar to current education visa and work visas under certain conditions.

Thanks for your post @Indiana. I read @Darren Major's prior comments, where the Patch editor congratulated him on, get this....finally, using his real name. And then "the Fan" comment is listed there, in his own email thread. Read the back-dated comments by @Darren Major. This is the problem that some of these online "anonymous" bloggers are getting themselves into, people read these comments...and can figure out quickly, who these people really are. On the article/link you provided above.....I would love to see us as country go back to the days before healthcare co-payments were implemented. It's how best, to go about doing that....while still keeping rates down, and not increases taxes on the middle class.

Janet, your short memory with the "days of old" regarding Health insurance is that many were unable to attain it unless they worked for a large corporation. In the very least, ObamaCare has moved to shake up not only the Insurer's, but also the providers. Ten years ago I couldn't find a PCP who would accept cash payments for uninsured, now they have formed a niche market even though I can also now purchase insurance from multiple sources. Another monster improvement is that I can not be denied to to prior conditions. I can go on and on, but simply put, it is not as simplistic as "co-payments".

Yes thanks @Janet - cannot imagine anybody feeling good about these hidden taxes in Obamacare
