Poll Fix: Senate races in CA, PA, NV and MO




Over the past couple days, there have been a slew of polls from key Senate races. So, here’s a poll fix.

California Senate:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Boxer with 49% support versus Fiorina’s 42%. Four percent (4%) favor another candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Pennsylvania Senate:

Democratic U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak and Republican Pat Toomey are locked in a 43 – 43 percent tie in their race for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Nevada Senate via Jon Ralston:

The Reid folks surely are not going to count their chickens, but they could not have hatched a better scenario than what is unfolding. That was confirmed Tuesday by a Rasmussen Reports poll showing a dead heat (Angle, 46 percent; Reid, 43 percent). And with Rasmussen considered the pollster most favorable to Republican candidates, there are those who will conclude Reid actually is ahead.

Missouri Senate:

The Missouri Senate race has squeezed to a near tie but remains largely the same way it’s been for months with Republican Roy Blunt barely ahead of Democrat Robin Carnahan.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Show Me State finds Blunt with 47% support and Carnahan earning 45% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) remain undecided.

Blunt has a right wing/teabagger opponent, Chuck Purgason, in the GOP primary on August 3rd. Rasmussen didn’t poll that race.
