Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic challenger to Republican Sen. Scott Brown, has opened up a six-point lead over her GOP rival, according to a new poll.

Speaking to CBS earlier this week, Warren hit Brown hard on his record as senator and described the enthusiastic response she is receiving from voters.

“The folks that I’m meeting, day after day after day … they’re saying to me, ‘You go girl, you know, he voted against jobs and that affects me, he voted against the extension of unemployment, and that affects me.'”

Brown’s ability to snag former Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat was a major victory for Republicans in the heavily blue state in 2010.

However, since taking office, Brown has been criticized as too conservative by Democrats and too liberal by Republicans.
