Poll Bonanza: Results From 4 Key Senate Races at the 2-Month Mark

A flood of new polls is giving voters a better sense of how the 2018 midterms are shaping up on the U.S. Senate side. Two of the polls show extremely tight races inside the polls’ margins of error, and another pair show Democrat incumbent candidates leading by healthy margins.

In Arizona, Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) leads Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in the race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ). The OH Predictive Insights poll shows McSally leading Sinema, 49-46. The three previous polls issued by OH Predictive Insights, a Phoenix-based polling firm, showed Sinema leading McSally. All three of those polls were conducted before the August primary, however. The poll’s margin of error is 4.01 percent.

In Nevada, incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) is in a tight race with Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV). According to the Suffolk University poll, Rosen and Heller are virtually tied at 41.6 percent and 41.2 percent, respectively. The poll’s margin of error is 4.4 percent. A previous poll conducted by Suffolk two months ago showed a similarly tight race.

In Michigan, incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) leads Republican challenger John James (R-MI), 55-33. Another 10 percent are undecided, and third-party candidates received the backing from two percent of respondents. That poll, conducted by the Detroit News and WDIV-TV, found that voters largely had a positive view of Stabenow and just over half of voters had heard of James.

And in Ohio, incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) leads Rep. Jim Renacci, 47-31. Another 22 percent of respondents are undecided, according to the Politico/AARP poll. That same poll showed Ohio’s Republican Attorney General, Mike DeWine (R-OH), leading former director of the CFPB Richard Cordray by a one-point margin.

Expect dozens of more polls to be conducted in key House, Senate, and gubernatorial races across the country in the weeks ahead.
