Skip to comments.West Virginia Senate: Manchin (D) Takes Slight Lead Over Raese (R)
Posted on 10/27/2010 9:54:58 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot
Democratic Governor Joe Manchin has been in overdrive in recent days to distance himself from President Obama and congressional Democrats, and now hes edged back into a three-point advantage in West Virginias U.S. Senate race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely West Virginia Voters finds Manchin with 49% support to Republican John Raeses 46%. Two percent (2%) like another candidate in the race, while four percent (4%) remain undecided.

This is useless...back and forth....I think it is best to wait until Tuesday to see what happens......Wow am I brilliant...NOT! lol.
Only one poll that matters...
This is Raese’s to lose given that he had the upperhand much of the fall. If he lets Manchin get away with his tact to the right and doesn’t point out that the balance of power in the Senate between Obama’s agenda and an alternative is at stake, he probably deserves to lose. Manchin, despite some moderate stances, is still going to be a vote for the Dem majority and for the overall larger government, more intrusion that has failed so badly the past 18 months.
WTH happened there? Raese was up by 7 just a week ago!! Is it because of Manchin’s “I-don’t-support-0bama” head fake?
Come on, West Virginia!!! Don’t let your country down!!
When did early voting start there? Manchin is such a fake! Thanks a ton NRA!
This makes me sick.
Manchineel been on fox lying kept n right raese no where 2 b found...
Intriguing premise..if he did switch, right after the election, gave the GOP the majority..and voted against all of Obama's stuff..he probably wouldn't have a GOP primary opponent
This state voted McCain, Bush, Bush. I refuse to believe that Manchin will win this.
If so, every coal miner will certainly lose his job.
Tired of people getting so worked up over these fluctuating polls. Tuesday can’t come soon enough so this nonsense can stop. Yes, I still think Raese is going to win but however it goes I just want it done so the real work can start. The real work will be challenging Republicans to govern constitutionally and conservatively. I don’t view Tuesday as cause for celebration but one step toward confronting both establishments in D.C. and want to get started now.
I'm really annoyed with the NRA.
And all how many Dems/liberals will be loving this poll now after trashing Rasmussen all damn year long.
he won’t switch..he is a full core liberal why would he switch if he wins as a Democrat this cycle. Raese needs to run ad says Obama and Dems are going to wins California and New York Senate races to decide if we are going to be able to stop Obama it is up to West Virginia voters. So vote Raese to stop Obama and Manchin to stay Governor. Also Republicans should have spent 3 million in WV instead of wasting on California
Is there a reason you're keying "text-ese?"
Early voting started on the 13th. So at this point, people have been voting for two weeks.
“Tired of people getting so worked up over these fluctuating polls.”
True. Live by the polls, die by the polls.
Still, I find myself watching them closely and though they can show some unusual swings, I like the way the majority of them are trending.
Sorry was on my phone and driving. Habit. Back at work now:)
Raese by 8 points over Manchin. All of you are forgetting the massive Repbublican turnout that is coming... If he is anywhere close to even, Raese wins.
