Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) has taken the lead in the marquee U.S. Senate race playing out in Massachusetts, according to a new poll out Tuesday.
The latest survey from MassINC Polling Group shows Brown leading Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren among likely Bay State voters (including leaners), 48 percent to 45 percent.
Tuesday's poll runs counter to what has been a persistent trend, with most surveys over the last month showing Warren outpacing Brown. In fact, Warren led by 4 points in MassINC's late-September poll.
The PollTracker Average still shows Warren holding a lead over Brown, 48.2 percent to 44.2 percent.
Correction: This post originally used the topline that excluded voters who are leaning toward a candidate, which showed Brown leading, 47 percent to 43 percent. It has now been updated to highlight the sample that includes leaners, which shows Brown leading by 3.
