Poll: Most voters say flap over Elizabeth Warren's ancestry is not "significant"

Brown had a one-point advantage over Warren, though the 48% and 47% they scored, respectively, is within the Suffolk University/7News poll’s sampling error of plus or minus four points.

Recent polling in the state has showed a tight race, with Warren closing the gap since a February Suffolk poll, which showed her down by nine points, 49% to 40%…

Nearly seven out of ten likely voters, however, told the pollsters that the story is not “significant,” while voters were split over whether Warren listing of herself as Native American in faculty directories, and possibly on other documents, impacted her career. Warren, who is a professor at Harvard University Law School but on leave this spring, said she highlighted her Cherokee roots to meet professionals of a similar background.
