New Poll Suggests Ohio Democratic U.S. Senate Primary Up For Grabs

A new poll has Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher out in front of Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner but suggests Ohio's Democratic U.S. Senate primary is still anybody's guess.

The survey of Democratic voters released today by Quinnipiac University has 33 percent backing Fisher and 26 percent favoring Brunner.

But 40 percent are undecided and 65 percent of those who now support a candidate say they could change their mind.

The pollsters say the race remains volatile and that Fisher's lead shouldn't be so surprising, given that he's been active in Ohio politics longer than Brunner.

The survey of 978 Ohio likely Democratic primary voters was conducted March 25-28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
