Though Sen. Joe Manchin (D) has led consistently throughout this campaign, the common political wisdom suggested that his battle with Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey would tighten as Election Day began to draw near.
Vox Populi also tested the Mountain State Senate race (10/13-15; 789 WV “active” voters) and found the Senator maintaining a lead, but a smaller one than earlier perceived. This ballot test found a 44-40% split in Sen. Manchin’s favor, with undecideds breaking his way when pushed. The secondary ballot test yielded a 53-47% split. Mr. Morrisey will have to make a major move now if he is to reverse the race’s trajectory on Election Day.
