Washington Post poll: Brown leads Mandel in Ohio Senate race

Source: Washington Post

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) holds a substantial lead over Republican challenger Josh Mandel with six weeks left until Election Day, according to a new Washington Post poll released Tuesday, giving Democrats some breathing room in a race where outside groups have put nearly $20 million toward defeating the incumbent.

Brown leads Mandel 53 percent to 41 percent among likely Ohio voters. Among registered Ohio voters, Mandel — the state treasurer — trails Brown 51 percent to 39 percent.

Brown’s level of support is nearly identical to President Obama’s. But Mandel’s is a tick lower than Mitt Romney’s. Among likely Ohio voters, Obama leads Mitt Romney 52 percent to 44 percent. Among registered voters, Obama enjoys a slightly wider 52 percent to 41 percent lead over Romney. The poll shows voters are less certain about their Senate choice than they are about their presidential preference.

Mandel runs behind Romney in a few key respects. Mandel earns the support of 85 percent of Republicans, compared to 91 percent for Romney. He is viewed favorably by 76 percent of all Republican voters, compared to 90 percent who hold a favorable opinion of the GOP presidential nominee. Mandel claims the support of 54 percent of white evangelical Christians who are likely to vote – a subset of the electorate that generally favors Republicans – a shade lower than 63 percent who support Romney.

Great news! Especially after the flood of advertising from outside groups attacking Sherrod Brown.

1. I'm hoping this trend is duplicated across the country. Average Joes telling the deep pockets to...

take a hike. It's the only antidote to the bottomless pit of money being thrown at our candidates.

2. The victory here would be great on so many levels

Not only would we get to keep one of the most progressive members of the Senate, but we would be able to stick it in the face of KKKarl Rove.

4. the ads from Brown are very pointed

they don't use the L word, but the phrase "too dishonest" is tied unmistakably to Mandel. It probably helps that the little twit looks like a short, buzzcut Eddie Haskell.

7. I LOVE Sherrod Brown.

He just shames that little ass-wipe running against him--who's losing despite a 4 to 1 money advantage.
