Raleigh, N.C. – Democrat Sherrod Brown remains ahead of Republican Josh Mandel for Ohio’s US Senate race. Brown continues to lead Mandel by 8 points (49-41), a survey conducted over the weekend found. Compared to a survey earlier in September, Brown still leads by 8 points, yet both candidates have gained one point over in their favor over the past few weeks.
“Sherrod Brown is holding steady with a high single digit lead in the Ohio Senate race,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “He continues to run several points ahead of President Obama so unless there’s a major shift over the last five weeks in the Presidential race he should be in pretty good shape.”
