Who do you think won the debate?
He still trails by about 1.4% according to the realclearpolitics average. When he ran against Elizebeth Warren of Massachusettes he trailed by about the same amount and ended up losing by 7.5%.
The two polls that have shown Scott Brown in the lead by one polled the most amount of people and and had the smallest Margin of Error. However four recent polls have shown Jeanne Shaheen with leads between 1 and 3 percent. So overall the race may even be closer than the 1.4% edge that Shaheen has according to RCP.
It seems as though with this race, like many races it's going to come down to turn out.
That didn't work out so well for Brown in the race against Elizebeth Warren. She did about 6 points better than the polling predicted. See here!
Brown has been able to cut into the lead by depicting Shaheen as very partisan. He points out that she has voted with President Obama 99% of the time. This while he votes with both sides of the political isle. CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer even said he voted with Obama 78% of the time and Brown conceded he voted with the Obama 50% of the time. Brown explains that that is what America needs. Someone who is willing to work with both sides and be independent.
Brown said he supports America using the fossil fuels we have here and being energy independent. He supports using the new and environmentally safe fracking that has helped America produce more of it's own oil. Shaheen emphasizes keeping tabs on polluters and opposes fracking.
On immigration, Brown said he would support a pathway to citizenship but only if it comes with better border security. That is why he said he would not support a current bill proposed by both a Republican and a Democrat that provides a pathway to citizenship. Shaheen supported the bill.
Realclearpolitics now has the race as Shaheen leading by 2.2%
