Elizabeth Warren leapfrogs Scott Brown in Massachusetts Senate race


  • ThenIn June, Scott Brown looked invincible. The Senator led every potential challenger by at least nine points, and Elizabeth Warren, perceived to be Democrats’ best shot against him, trailed by fifteen.
  • Now Since Warren declared her candidacy earlier this month, she’s skyrocketed in the polls and now leads Brown by two points. That’s a seventeen-point gain in a little over three months. source

» Hey, wha’ happen? Warren’s rise may be due in part to an “announcement boost;” she was long-rumored as a candidate, and her official entry in the race may have fired up a contingent of Democratic voters. Perhaps more significant of a factor, however, is Brown’s plummeting popularity. Back in December, he was the 16th most popular Senator in the country, out of 87 polled. Now, Brown is in 61st place, and his favorability has dropped by 25 points.

Elizabeth Warren vs. Scott Brown: It’s On!


Our favorite (only?) Elizabeth Warren .gif is back! That’s because the badass Harvard professor and former Obama adviser, who proposed a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before anyone else even thought we needed one, just launched an exploratory committee to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in 2012.

Brown’s strategy so far has been to label Warren an out-of-touch Harvard elite from Oklahoma. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time anyone has ever used that stereotype.

Yes, please. I will vote twice if I can.
