From our April 11-18, 2013 statewide survey with MassLive.com, The Republican newspaper and CBS-3 Springfield: U.S. Reps. Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch hold double-digit leads over potential Republican opponents in the special Senate election. Economic issues top voters' concerns. Nearly half of voters approve of the job Elizabeth Warren is doing as U.S. Senator. Read coverage of the survey on MassLive.com. Complete results, statement of methodology and the text of the questionnaires are here.
