Some pundits say Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts is vulnerable to a Democratic challenge in his 2012 re-election campaign. But a new poll shows him in front of five potential Democratic scott,brown,massachusetts,pollcontenders by at least seven percentage points, despite the state’s liberal history, the Boston Globe reports.

Brown was elected in January to fill the seat opened by the death of Edward Kennedy. The Public Policy Polling survey shows voters prefer him over Kennedy’s widow Vicki Kennedy by 48 percent to 41 percent, Gov. Deval Patrick by 49-42 percent, Rep. Edward Markey 49-39 percent, Rep. Michael Capuano 52-36 percent and Rep. Stephen Lynch 49-30 percent.

More than half of those surveyed approve of Brown’s job performance – 53 percent, compared to 29 percent who disapprove.
