Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) Ohio 2012 Senatorial Survey

Rasmussen (R) Ohio 2012 Senate Poll
  • Josh Mandel (R) 43% (40%)
  • Sherrod Brown (D) 43% (44%)
  • Some other candidate 3% (4%)
  • Undecided 11% (12%)
Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted March 26, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points. Results from the poll conducted February 8, 2012 are in parentheses.

Inside the numbers:
Twenty-four percent (24%) of Ohio voters have a very favorable opinion of Sherrod Brown. Brown is viewed very unfavorably by 20. Josh Mandel is seen very favorably by 11% and very unfavorably by 14%, but he's not nearly as well-known to voters in the state as the incumbent is.

Despite the recent primary contest, Ohio Republicans have already come together with Mandel earning 84% support. Brown, by contrast, has the backing of just 74% of Democrats. Among voters not affiliated with either political party, Brown leads Mandel by eight points, 43% to 35%.

Men favor Mandel 54% to 34%, but women support Brown 49% to 34%. Voters under 40 prefer the Democrat, while their elders give the edge to his GOP challenger. Mandel leads 52% to 38% among married voters. Unmarried voters like Brown by a 53% to 24% margin.
