The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Buckeye State finds Brown with 48% support to Mandel's 44%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, while five percent (5%) are undecided.

Brown is not at the 50% mark and Ras has a 3% to 5% Dem advantage over Rs when it is really closer to even. Mandel is in good position to take the Ohio election.

I'm a little worried about this race. Mandel has some good ads out and running, but he is going to need some Romney coat-tails.

A victory by Mandel would be more than just a new Senator, but a rising star on the national secene. That’s why the media has been bashing him non-stop since he announced.

No one voting for Romney is gonna vote for Brown. Romney and Mandel will do just fine here.

Ohio is one screwed up state. Brown is a far left moonbat, not even a moderate type. And Obama is a marxist. Yet they are leading.

What happened to the 2010 GOP landslide in Ohio? I don’t get this state. It used to be so conservative.

I despise Sherrod Brown. He has done nothing but run negative ads nonstop here in OH against Mandel while not tooting his own horn and record. I can’t believe the voters in OH would vote to re-elect this scum. Never underestimate the low-information voters though.

On a side note - there was a triple shooting on the south side of Lancaster, OH yesterday morning. In one of the pictures there was a Sherrod Brown sign in the front yard where the shooting took place.

To pull a victory with this Democratic/communists Ohio empire would take a miracle. Hopefully this election we won’t need their help and would kick their collective butts.

First off there is not 8% undecided at this point...1-3% at most, so I would like to know how the questions were asked. Second what are the internals....the weighting. These polls are totally useless with out them this year.

Well then... go ahead! Hike taxes to the moon and watch the moving vans go into the hyper-drive.

The USA will welcome the producers and wealth creators you send away.

Brown is the most left-wing Senator - even further left than Barbara Boxer and Bernie Sanders. It is ridiculous he is even on the radar in Ohio.

Mandel would be a fantastic Senator.

John Kasich fixed their immediate problem, and many of them snapped back into "it's safe to be an economic liberal" mode.

Almost every Romney sign is accompanied by a Mandel sign, that I’ve seen in NE Ohio. I’m not concerned!

I have a buddy in Defiance. (A union/GM town) He says that even though there weren’t even that many of them, the Obama Biden signs are coming down. Think maybe folks are changing their minds after watching the debates?

There’s another Dem senator under 49%. When Obama collapses in Ohio andf he will under the presure of Romney allies’ great ground game, Josh will win.

I don’t think we will take the Senate. That means Dirty Harry will continue to poke republicans in the eye and no bills will get passed.

On the plus side, if Romney does pull out a bit of a landslide nationally, it could boost Mandel over the line. But then again, Brown wouldn’t exactly be the first Senator to win despite polling under 50%. And this is the state that kept sending back the vile Metzenbaum.
