Some good news today out of Ohio regarding two of the biggest races this year courtesy of Politico/AARP’s latest poll. First, the U.S. Senate race between the incumbent U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D. OH) & Tea Party Rep. & Trump Loyalist Jim Renacci (R. OH):
In the Senate contest, the poll shows Brown leading Renacci, 47 percent to 31 percent, with 22 percent undecided.
Brown, the two-term incumbent, is winning among Democrats, 85 percent to 2 percent. Among Republicans, Renacci leads, 71 percent to 13 percent.
Brown also has a nearly 2-to-1 lead among independents — 38 percent, to Renacci’s 20 percent — though 42 percent of independents are undecided.
Among voters 50 and older, Brown holds a similar lead over Renacci, 49 percent to 33 percent, with 18 percent undecided.
Now the Governor’s race between former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director, Richard Cordray (D. OH), and Attorney General Mike DeWine (R. OH):
In the governor’s race, the state’s Republican attorney general, Mike DeWine, has a negligible lead of 1 point over Democrat Richard Cordray, 39 percent to 38 percent, with 23 percent undecided.
Among voters 50 and older, DeWine, a former senator whom Brown ousted in 2006, leads Cordray, 44 percent to 38 percent, with 19 percent undecided.
The poll was conducted Sept. 2-11 by Morning Consult, which surveyed 1,592 registered voters in Ohio, including 841 voters aged 50 and older. The margin of error for the overall sample is plus or minus 2 percentage points, while the 50-and-older results carry a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
