West Virginia Senate: Byrd Flying to Reelection With 33 Point Lead
Byrd (D) 63%; Raese (R) 30%
Monday, September 11, 2006
After garnering support levels in the high 50s for the last several months, Democratic Senator Robert Byrd has pierced the 60% threshold in our polling to now lead Republican John Raese 63% to 30%.
That adds eight points to the spread. Our August survey showed the Senator over-flying his Republican opponent 56% to 31%, a mere twenty-five-point advantage.
