New Poll Reveals Vance Is Now Ahead Of Ryan In All-Important Ohio Senate Race

    A brand new poll from Emerson College and The Hill gave Ohio GOP Senate candidate J.D. Vance some much needed good news, as he’s pulled ahead of the Democratic opponent he’s facing for the seat, Rep. Tim Ryan.

    Ohio is an important state in just about any and every election, but this one is super important as the Republican Party is attempting not only to take back control of the House, which is a likely outcome of the midterms in November, but the Senate also.

    Gaining control of both chambers of Congress would allow the GOP to put a stop to major pieces of Biden’s agenda going forward and might be able to get some positive things done for the American people, such as lowering inflation and gas prices, while also tackling the border crisis. But at the bare minimum, they would halt Biden in his tracks, and that’s good enough until the 2024 election.

    Here’s how things break down according to Newsmax:

    The survey shows Vance in the lead by 4 points, with neither candidate holding the majority, in the race to replace outgoing Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who is set to retire next year.

    Survey results:

    • Vance: 44%
    • Ryan: 40%
    • Other: 3%
    • Undecided: 13%

    A previous poll from last month showed Vance with a slightly smaller lead of 3 points.

    A poll of Ohio gubernatorial candidates shows Republican Gov. Mike DeWine with a sizable lead over his Democratic opponent, Nan Whaley, at 50% to 33%.

    Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, said in a statement: “Unlike the Republican candidate for the Senate election, Mike DeWine is not only winning the support of men two-to-one with 54% of their vote, but more importantly, he also leads Nan Whaley amongst women, 47% to 38%. Without the support of Ohio women voters, Whaley’s success is unlikely.”

    The survey then went on to ask Ohioans to choose between President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump. Almost 40 percent of those who participated in the poll picked Biden, while 50 percent chose Trump. Emerson conducted the poll between Sept. 12-13 and surveyed 1,000 likely voters. The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
