(Newser) – Last time around, we had Elizabeth Warren tied with Scott Brown in their Massachusetts Senate race. Now, after the Democratic convention with a speech by Warren, a new poll has her surging 6 points past Brown among likely voters and 12 points among registered voters, the Springfield Republican reports. Brown maintains a strong 22-point advantage with independents, which means Warren is likely riding a wave of post-convention enthusiasm among Democrats. (Or maybe the negative ad helped.)
