    US Senator Scott Brown leads Democrats in new poll if special election were held today

    By Noah Bierman, Globe Staff

    Senator Scott Brown would most likely be back in the Senate if a special election were held today, according to a new poll.

    The telephone poll of 500 registered voters, taken by the Mass Inc. Polling Group for WBUR, showed Brown, a Republican, leading a generic Democrat 47 percent to 39 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent. The remaining 15 percent of respondents did not express a preference.

    That’s about the same margin, 8 percentage points, by which Brown lost his seat to Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat who will replace him next month.

    The poll also showed Brown leading several potential candidates in theoretical match-ups. The one who came closest to Brown, Governor Deval Patrick, lost to him by 7 points. Patrick has said he would not run.

    Brown would defeat Attorney General Martha Coakley by 15 points, US Representative Ed Markey by 18 points, Representative Michael Capuano by 19 points, Representative Steve Lynch by 27 points , and former representative Marty Meehan by 19 points.

    The poll also shows that voters, despite ousting Brown, have a high opinion of him, with 58 percent of respondents saying they view him favorably compared with 28 percent who said they view him unfavorably. There had been concern after his tough election with Warren that his attacks could turn off voters.

    The political world has been abuzz about a potential comeback for Brown since he lost the election last month. Senator John Kerry is expected to be named secretary of state, opening up a special election in the spring, after Patrick appoints an interim replacement.

    Why not drink acid...or drive off the highway? Like those actions, letting Brown back into the Senate IS A LOSE-LOSE plus it gives Wall Street back their stooge - he's not moderate or bipartisan - FORGET IT!

    Scott Brown should not run  right now....why serve in a Senate full of Obama poodles , run by crooked Dingy Harry Reid?  Auntie Zenuiti would be the perfect Mass. Dem candidate, though another airhead Kennedy would also make Moonbatachusetts proud.

    Scott Brown can run for Governor OR Senate in 2014, when the upcoming Obama liberal crackup will mean a better chance for sane candidates who want to tame Big Government, even in Massachusetts...

    Brown was ranked by actual votes as being the number 2 most moderate Seantor behind Olympia Snowe from Maine.  Those are the facts.

    Brown has the liberals shorts in a bunch (like yours) because you think that there is only one approach to problem, your liberal stand.  The TP conservatives don't support him beacuse he isn't ideologically pure.

    This by definition displays a voting record of compromise and moderation.

    Don't generalize about liberals.  It is not the moderate thing to do.

    I think Brown's politics are not that bad.  He is one of those RINOs that have survived the purges of his party.  Trouble is he is tied to that party which is controlled by an idiot ideological fringe.  That makes his future problematic, especially in this state.

    I'm most interested in whether Deval will use his special power to appoint an interim senator that is reserved for dem governors exclusively

    [/QUOTE]

    Latest rumor on Politico is that Barney Frank hasn't said no to the interim Senator job.
