Ohio Senate: Brown (D) 47%; DeWine (R) 41%

Monday, September 18, 2006

In Ohio's edge-of-seat Senate race, Democratic challenger Sherrod Brown now claims a six-point lead of 47% to 41% over Republican Senator Mike DeWine.

The tables have turned slowly but dramatically in this hard-fought campaign. Last November, the incumbent had the edge in the Rasmussen Reports’ first Ohio poll for Election 2006. DeWine sustained a lead through April but Brown has now held a lead for three polls in a row (four of the last five). Last month, like the preceding month, Brown’s lead was statistically insignificant. But this latest poll confirms that the electoral winds have clearly shifted in the Ohio Senate race.
