Public Policy Polling (6/12-13; 633 WV registered voters) released their new West Virginia poll and finds Sen. Joe Manchin (D) continuing to lead Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R), but both candidates fall in the 40 percentile range. The actual ballot test numbers give Sen. Manchin a 49-42% advantage. The office holder approval ratings, however, prove quite interesting. While President Trump scores a 64:30% positive to negative ratio, he is the only tested political figure who lands in positive territory. Sen. Manchin scores only a 39:48% favorability index, but he is in better shape than Mr. Morrisey who posted a 30:44% ratio. Gov. Jim Justice (R) fares the worst, at 27:47% positive to negative.
