New Polls Confirm Scott Brown Has All Mojo

A new Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters in Massachusetts finds Martha Coakley (D) leading Scott Brown (R) in their race for U.S. Senate, 49% to 47%.

Last week, Coakley led by nine points in the Rasmussen survey.

3% choosing Joe Kennedy and 2% undecided

Coakley is supported by 77% of Democrats while Brown picks up the vote from 88% of Republicans. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Brown leads 71% to 23%. To be clear, this lead is among unaffiliated voters who are likely to participate in the special election.

The new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that Brown is ahead by two percentage points among those who are absolutely certain they will vote. A week ago, he trailed by two among those certain to vote.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of likely voters in Massachusetts have a favorable opinion of Brown, and 58% say the same about Coakley.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters think Coakley will win the election, while 33% expect a victory for Brown.

Also of note:

Meanwhile, Democrat  internal polling that showed Coakley ahead by 14 points last week, now shows her ahead by just five points.
