Brown, Warren face off in debate

(Continued)

"Another interesting stat is that 22 percent of people who said they would vote for Senator Brown said they would vote for President Obama,” Talty said. “There are Obama supporters who said they may vote for Brown. If you’re Professor Warren, you need to try to peel off those Obama voters from Brown by talking about those positions he’s taken that diverge with those of President Obama and the Democrats in Congress. If you’re Senator Brown, you reiterate the number of times you have voted independently in the best interest of voters rather than for either party.”

Most political commentators and politicians after the debate predicted that the tight polls, many of which give Warren a slight lead but are by no means clear, are an indication that the race will remain extremely tight.

"I don’t think anything tonight would change that,” Congresswoman Niki Tsongas, D-Lowell, said after the debate.
