As Brown is laying the groundwork for his announcement for his senate run next week here is an oldie but a goodie from the last Senate election where TPM overheard Brown complaining about an early PPP Poll.
Just walked passed Senator Brown’s office and in the hallway was the man himself, lamenting into his cell phone, ‘I don’t understand how she can be down 20 points one week and is now up 2. What is going on?
Funny, PPP just released a new Senate poll. Republicans might recall that PPP is the pollster that pretty much nailed it on the Senate election.
Well, in a head to head contest between Ed Markey and Scott Brown, it’s a statistical tie.
In a hypothetical matchup tested by PPP, former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) held a narrow edge over the Democratic frontrunner, Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), 48 percent to 45 percent.
Yes, I know, I know, primaries, we don’t know who the candidates are, it’s a long way from June. Yes, I agree. But it’s pretty damn funny that Brown is setting up his announcement on the heals of a big lead that doesn’t exist.
Welcome to the race Scotto.
