Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s (R) campaign released their latest internal data, which is different than any other published survey. The Fabrizio Lee firm, polling for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (10/16-18; 600 WV likely voters), finds Mr. Morrisey leading Sen. Joe Manchin (D), 44-42%.
This is the first poll since May that finds Mr. Morrisey topping Sen. Manchin. During virtually the same period, Strategic Research Associates (10/12-19; 650 WV likely voters) finds Sen. Manchin ahead, 52-36%. While the Fabrizio data appears to be too favorable for Morrisey, the Strategic poll appears as an outlier on the other wing. In the last ten polls, Sen. Manchin has averaged 46.7% of the respondents’ preference, and topped 50% in only one of the surveys.
