The polling firm handling Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s (R) campaign for US Senate just released a new study that flies in the face of other recent results. The 1892 organization (9/24-25; 500 WV likely voters) finds Mr. Morrisey fighting back to tie Sen. Joe Manchin (D) at 45-45%. Other polls have found Sen. Manchin holding about a nine-point advantage, but this latest data is the first to surface in many weeks.
It is quite possible that Morrisey is moving to close the gap, especially with the 1892 analysts finding that Independents are now breaking his way, but more data will be required to prove that this result is not an anomaly.
