Nebraska: Deb Fischer Has Wide Lead Over Bob Kerrey in Internal GOP Poll

Nebraska state Sen. Deb Fischer’s (R) campaign released an internal poll today that showed her ahead of former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) by a large margin in the race to replace retiring Sen. Ben Nelson (D).

The poll showed Fischer at 58 percent while Kerrey garnered 33 percent.

A source from the Kerrey campaign told Roll Call that other private polling shows a much tighter race, and the source stressed that Fischer is widely unknown in the state.

Rob Autry of Public Opinion Strategies conducted the poll of 500 likely voters for Fischer’s campaign June 17-18. The information on the poll provided by the Fischer campaign  did not include a partisan breakdown of the poll’s sample size.

Roll Call rates this race as Leans Republican.
