A special Senate election this November to replace the late Robert Byrd is still awaiting the green light from West Virginias attorney general, but popular Democratic Governor Joe Manchin is the early leader in hypothetical matchups with two of his possible Republican opponents.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in West Virginia, taken Thursday night, shows Manchin with 53% support, while Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito earns 39% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer another candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
If former West Virginia Secretary of State Betty Ireland is his GOP rival, Manchin captures 65% voter support. Ireland picks up 26%. Three percent (3%) again like some other candidate, while six percent (6%) are undecided.

its hard to understand any hard working American voting rat....like in Minn...good farmers and their families and they go rat every time, with a lot of help from the idiot third partiers....
some people are so stupid....
Manchin is well liked in the state. Manchin will win the senate...... I’d like to see Betty Ireland back in politics...her Mom was ill before and she took care of her...she has since passed.
Yeah, this guy is the epitome of what many of my friends in Seattle think of people in Kentucky.
I’m not surprised that a state that would give a life-long seat to Byrd would vote in another Dem....
We will never get to a super majority of 60 senators to repeal death care and other Barry initiatives if we can not win in a conservative state like WV.
It is sad we have mile long posts about some worthless RINO in ultra liberal states and how evil the RINO’s are but will elect a LIBERAL who will have a conservative rating in the senate of around 12 like the rest of the 20 something so called ‘conservatives’ from conservative states and have post like this here. There should be outrage.
Like other conservative states these people are of 2 types the greedy ‘bring home the bacon’ at all cost, even if it means destroying their country or the as stupid as the human species can be crowd.
