(NECN) - David Paleologos, director of Suffolk University's political research center, talks about the latest poll numbers regarding the likely rivals for the U.S. Senate seat that is up for re-election this fall.
He says independent voters are driving the race. Brown now has a 52 percent favorable rating as opposed to 35 percent for Warren. Both candidates have a 28 percent unfavorable rating.
More than two third of voters in Massachusetts are independents or Republicans, and Paleologos says that Warren couldn't win the race with the support of Democrats alone; she must reach out to independent voters if she wants to defeat Brown.
