Ohio: GOP Poll Gives Bill Johnson 8-Point Lead
Posted at 1:14 p.m. on Oct. 10, 2012
Johnson had 47 percent and Wilson had 39 percent in the survey paid for jointly by the freshman lawmaker and the National Republican Congressional Committee.
The results counter Wilson’s own mid-September polling that showed a tied race. Roll Call rates this race as Leans Republican.
The 6th district race has become one of the most competitive House races in Ohio, next to the Member-vs.-Member race in the 16th district. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dedicated additional resources to the 6th district race two weeks ago.
Polls show President Barack Obama with a small lead in the Buckeye State. That’s not the case in the 6th district. GOP nominee Mitt Romney has a dominate lead in this eastern Ohio district, 53 percent to 39 percent, according to the GOP survey.
The Public Opinion Strategies poll interviewed 400 likely voters from Sept. 26 to 27. It had a margin of error of 4.9 points.
