Raese Three Points Ahead in Latest Poll
A new Rasmussen poll shows Republican senate candidate John Raese three points ahead of Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin at 49 percent to 46 percent, moving the state from “Leans Republican” to “Toss-Up” status.
In last week’s Rasmussen poll, Raese led by six points. A Public Policy Polling poll released yesterday showed Manchin leading by three points.
Both candidates received national attention on Monday. Former president Bill Clinton campaigned for Manchin in Morgantown, while Sarah Palin endorsed Raese on Facebook.
Only 3 percent of voters remain undecided.
