Portman takes big lead for Senate

Published: Sat, September 18, 2010 @ 12:08 a.m.




Republican Rob Portman opened a 20-point lead on Democrat Lee Fisher in the race for one of Ohio’s U.S. Senate seats, a poll finds.

Of the likely voters surveyed by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute over the past week, 55 percent favored the former congressman, versus 35 percent who favor Fisher.

Another 58 percent said they would support the candidate who opposes President Barack Obama’s policies.

“It’s difficult to find any good news for Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher in these numbers,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the institute, said in a released statement. “Likely voters in Ohio, as is the case nationally, are angry at the status quo and with Democrats controlling Congress and the White House. Fisher is taking it on the chin from those who are trying to send a message to the White House. A Democrat who is losing among women likely to vote by 8 points is a candidate in trouble.”

Connecticut-based Quinnipiac regularly gauges Ohioans’ opinions of candidates and issues. From Sept. 9 to 14, it surveyed 730 likely voters in the state.

Among the results, 60 percent of those polled disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president.

And 49 percent said they want Republicans rather than Democrats in control of the U.S. Senate, compared to 31 percent who said the opposite.

“Among the likely Ohio electorate for this November, President Barack Obama is not a popular fellow,” Brown said. “Independent likely voters disapprove 65–31 percent of the job he is doing. With the president such a heavy weight around the neck of Democratic candidates, it will be hard for one to win such a high-profile office this year in Ohio.”

Oh boy

Let the record reflect that Peter A. Brown is a spin postured liar,..

Lee Fisher is losing that race because nobody knows a damn thing good about him,.. PERIOD !!!

The Independent based voters wanted Jennifer Brunner as the candidate. However, the regional take over of the democrat disguise force funded Lee Fisher and they're going to lose the seat.

There's absolutely NOTHING you can link a Lee Fisher to president Obama with. Thus to allege Fisher is losing to a Rob Portman because of president Obama is a twisted and non supportable,.. LIE !!!!

See that alleged anti-incumbent lie that clown Peter A. Brown is trumpeting. Actually only had effect on the republicans,.. What a contrast that Browns running from.

That's in spite of the fact that they're doing all they can to derail the Obama presidency and stall the democratic congress from further aiding the nation,.. CHECK THE PRIMARIES !!!

There will be no Republican / Teabagger takeover of the house nor senate in November. Then we'll see just how worthless a Peter A. Brown is.

Where if those sentiments were in anyway correct then Tim Ryan would be the first in Ohio to not be re-elected.

See Tim Ryan has worked quiet well and closely with the Obama administration to have made vast improvement to the economic emergency within the state.

In contrast both Ted Strickland and Lee Fisher hasn't and look at the difference in their candidacies in regards to voter support,.. How Profound.

So the LIE trying to blame their problems with voters on that " Black Guy ". Is a veiled cunning clan boys Teabagger tag-line in print that makes no sense and bears no credence,..

See I happen to contribute to various outlets of factual truths. That's untangling the misinformation syndicates. That's progressively making clowns like Peter A. Brown and their propaganda perched publications worthless,..COMPARE OUR ACCURACY IN NOVEMBER !!!

Rob and Jane Portman are SW Ohio neighbors of mine. They are the type of people one puts in their will to raise one's chldren in case of untimely demise. They will serve Ohio quite well.

@ Nunya- Where's these vast improvements in Ohio that Timmy and Nobama are supposed to have brought to the region? The unemployment rate is higher now than it was last year!
