Polls favor Scott Brown

It’s still “Go, Scott Go!” for Bay State voters as the newly elected U.S. Sen. Scott Brown settles into office in Washington, according to a new Rassmussen poll.

Seventy percent of those polled approved of Brown’s performance since his upset win Jan. 19 and only 26 percent disapprove.

“Scott Brown will continue to work hard for Massachusetts, especially when it comes to constituent services and putting people back to work in the commonwealth,” said Brown spokesman Colin Reed in a statement.

The poll was conducted March 8, after Brown took a controversial stand in support of $5 billion Democrat-backed jobs bill. The poll questioned 500 likely Massachusetts voters and has a 4.5 percent margin of error.

Those polled also think the anti-incumbent wave that carried Brown to office should sweep the nation, with 53 percent saying it would be better if congressional incumbents were defeated in November. Only 38 percent believe their local congressional representative should be voted out, however.

Fifty-two percent of those polled, who voted for Brown after he vowed to fight President Obama’s health care reform, opposed so-called “Obamacare.” Forty-six percent were in favor.
