Polling Points to Dem Wins in Statewide Races...Except McGraw's

This week's Public Policy Polling survey also included several statewide races. The biggest news there: "It looks like West Virginia is going to have a new Attorney General. Republican challenger Dan Greear leads incumbent Darrell McGraw now by a margin of 50-42."

The other Democrats in the races polled fared much better:

  • Joe Manchin is "cruising to reelection with a 69-27 advantage."
  • Jay Rockefeller "should be headed back to the US Senate, as he leads 58-40."
  • Natalie Tennant is up 58-31 for secretary of state.
  • Gus Douglass leads 50-41 for agriculture commissioner.
PPP polled 2,128 voters Wednesday and Thursday. The margin of error is +/-2.1%. The probability is virtually 100%.

The polling memo breaks down the results by whether or not the voter has already cast an absentee or early ballot. It also offers detailed results by gender, party affiliation, race and age.
