Skip to comments.Ohio: Mandel Ties Brown
Posted on 03/29/2012 11:40:59 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
After decisively claiming the Republican nomination earlier this month, State Treasurer Josh Mandel has now tied incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Oh) in the latest Rasmussen Reports survey of 500 likely voters in the vital senatorial race that could very well sway the balance of power this November.
Mandel (R) - 43% Brown (D) - 43% Don't know - 11% Someone else - 3%
Mandel, a former Marine Reservist who served two tours of duty in Iraq and who is the grandson of two Holocaust survivors, is best known for his outspoken support of Israel and his strong conservative ideals both in, and out of government. He was uniformly supported before the primary by Republican officials and Conservative interest groups.
The Ohio race is going to be vital in the horse race between Democrats struggling to hang on to their now six year hold over the Senate and Republicans regaining complete control of the legislature to be of service to either the new president, or defying the current one. And this poll shows us just how close it will be this November.
Keep your eye on this race.
Repubs are getting schwacked by Obama in Ohio, so it’s nice to see at least there’s SOME good news coming from there.
I’m glad to see this poll because I heard on the news earlier that Brown had a 10 point lead over Mandel. Of course, it was the Quinnipac Poll. (spelling?)
Wow.. just saw that Quinnipiac on Brown having that 10-pt lead. Quin also has Nelson at +8 over Mack in Florida.
Hoping there’s still an outside chance at winning the Senate. That may be the best area to concentrate now.
I know 2 votes he will get here in this house.Obamacare and the economy are still very big deals here in Ohio and Brown voted for Obamacare and every other crazy idea Obama had.
Where do you see that?I am here in SE Ohio and I see none of that.Every here hates Obama.
Where do you see that?I am here in SE Ohio and I see none of that.Everyone here hates Obama.
They probably polled Democrats.
Hey, hey, ho, ho - Sherrod Brown needs to go!
Sherrod Brown was flown in from his mother’s funeral on the night of the obamacare vote to cast the deciding vote for it.
Never forget that. He votes lock-step on every communist agenda this administration comes up with.
What were some of the internals of the Quinnipiac poll? It also had Obama with a bigger lead than I expected in Ohio.
Check out the head-to-head polling on www.realclearpolitics.com and you'll see them there.
Mittens and the other Repubs have much work to do between now and November.
