Since the May 8th primary election that nominated Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) as Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D) November challenger, three polls have been released. The latest, from Gravis Marketing (5/22; 543 WV likely general election voters) puts the Senator in his strongest political position, leading Mr. Morrisey, 53-40%. Mr. Manchin’s internal poll, from the Global Strategy Group (5/13-16; 600 WV likely general election voters), found the incumbent’s advantage to be 50-42%. An immediate post-primary WPA Intelligence survey (5/10; 400 WV likely general election voters) actually posted Mr. Morrisey to a two-point edge, 46-44%. The West Virginia race will continue to be a top-tier Republican challenge campaign all the way to November.
