Update: Comment from Warren campaign manager Doug Rubin:
Be Wary of PollsI assume there will be a lot of polls in the next 3 weeks – and they will likely be all over the map. Just a word of caution to not focus on the poll results but on the important work we have left to do at the grassroots level. Talking to friends, neighbors, co-workers, knocking on doors, and helping get people out to the polls will make the difference in this election.
Oh by the way, another poll, this one by YouGov:
In the state’s headline-grabbing U.S. Senate race, Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren has taken a lead of 7 points over incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown, 46%-39%. The race was dead-even in September (44%-44%) but it appears to have broken in Warren’s favor.
Now I’m seeing Gail Huff in my TV talking about how Elizabeth Warren should stick to talking about jobs and the economy and not Scott Brown’s record on women’s issues, since he’s totally into women and is married to one and stuff.
Good gravy, Henry VIII had women in his household … not exactly a high bar, folks.
And furthermore, this just shows the #HarvestofFail from harping on one miniscule morsel of oppo research — ie. Warren’s heritage claims — all the way into October. Dumb dumb dumb. Much better to have cultivated a good reason for people to vote for you, which Brown couldn’t manage in two+ years in the Senate. Oh well.
