Latest polls show bad, bad news for Senate candidate Josh Mandel - June 27, 2012

Latest polls show bad, bad news for Josh Mandel
by Joseph on June 27, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Quinnipiac shows Sherrod Brown leading Mandel by 16 points (50/34), with solid leads across all the major demographics. Brown has a 16 point lead with Independents, 19 with women and 12 points with men.
...
Overall, Brown is up 4 points from same poll conducted in May. And Mandel is down 6 points. This went from a 6 point race to a 16 point race in a little over a month. This is very good news for the Brown campaign.

PPP also has a poll out today showing Brown with a 7 point lead over Mandel (46-39). Brown’s lead dropped 1 point since the last poll but he still wins independents by 9 points (43-34), voters over 65 by 9 points, and he maintains a 21 point lead with the 18 to 29 crowd. Mandel holds on to a small lead with 30 to 45 year old voters.

But the really bad news for Mandel is in his own numbers. Josh’s name recognition went up 8 points since the last poll while his unfavorability rating went up 9 points. It seems the more people hear about Josh Mandel, the less they seem to like him.

Mandel was a back bencher state representative until he took the treasurer's office in 2010. Before that he was a Lyndhurst city councilman.

2. A logical analysis and conclusion

You may still be incorrect -- correlation does not imply causation, but causation cannot happen without correlation. I hope that this is a causal connection.

These polls look very good for Sen. Brown.

Thanks for the post.

3. The Bain Capital ads with real the victims are powerful.

They are easy to understand, purely honest, and effective at conveying the message.

4. Right wing ads have been bashing Sherrod Brown for months now

These poll results are encouraging. From what I can see, Brown is very popular in the state. He really gets out there for the workers and fights for them.

And Josh Mandel is sleazy ... even with his many I was a soldier ads.

I would love to see Senator Brown breeze back to the Senate in November!

5. The kid's a still a whipper-snapper

 

It's a little early for Generation Y to be in the Senate. There's only a handful or so of people his age in the house.

6. The Mandel family is a very rich and very powerful republican supporter...

The boy was groomed for this. The fact that he is running and loosing isn't all that comforting because he has the balls and the cash to keep running unil he gets what he wants.

I think they believe Romney will take Portman as his VP and so pave the way for Mandel to be appointed and then run as an incumbent in the special election.
