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

Who do you think has the momentum coming into these final days of the election campaign?

Democrat Elizabeth Warren is up by five points over incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown in the latest WBUR/MassINC poll of the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts. That's a near-total reversal of the last WBUR poll, which on Oct. 9 (right after the first presidential debate) had Brown up by four points.

In fact, Warren has been trending upward 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 Sen. John McCain and today won the Boston Herald's endorsement.

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!

Why??? Because, Elizabeth Warren is a Fraud and a Hypocrite

Your Father's credentials were issued by a higher authority. Obama and/or Warren might well win... but if not, have you selected your country of emmigration? France is pretty nice and probably feels a lot like Massachusetts. Reverend E. Raleigh Pimperton III

I hope you are the first to go. But France is too liberal for you--do you really want their universal health care and social services system? May I suggest something like the Ukraine for you?

It's sad to see that she is up in the polls it's kind of like seeing a girl dump a really good guy in order to back to the guy she dated before who abused her.
