  • Utah Senate: Lee (R) 54%, Granato (D) 29%

    Republican Mike Lee continues to hold a commanding lead over his Democratic opponent Sam Granato in the U.S. Senate race in Utah. 

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Lee picking up 54% support, while Granato earns 29% of the vote.  Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and 12% are undecided. 

    In late June, following his victory in a GOP Primary runoff, Lee led Granato by a 58% to 28% margin. It was Rasmussen Reports' first look at the Senate contest in the state. 

    The two men are competing for the seat currently held by Republican Robert Bennett, whose bid for reelection was derailed by Tea Party activists at the state's Republican convention.  Utah has not elected a Democratic senator since 1970.

    The race remains Solid GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
