Tennessee Senate

Corker (R) 48% Ford (D) 42%

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

The most recent Rasmussen Reports election poll shows Republican Bob Corker leading Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. 48% to 42% (see crosstabs).

Corker is now his party’s official candidate for the November showdown, having emerged successfully from a 3-way primary race on August 3. Last month, our poll in the hotly contested race to replace retiring Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist showed Corker ahead, 49% to 37%. That poll was conducted before Corker wrapped up the nomination.
