Poll: Democrat Tim Ryan Takes The Lead Over J.D. Vance In Ohio Senate Race



Tim Ryan and J.D.Vance

Democratic Representative Tim Ryan, of Ohio, is now leading Trump-backed Republican J.D. Vance by 2 points in the state’s senate race, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

The survey, conducted by Ohio Northern University, found Ryan ahead with 43 percent to Vance’s 41 percent as the two compete to replace retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman.

According to the poll, 79 percent of Democrats said they support Ryan and 65 percent of Republicans said they are backing Vance. A larger share of Republicans say they’d cross party lines to vote for Ryan (18 percent) than Democrats who’d do the same for Vance (9 percent). The results were within the poll’s 3.8-point margin of error.

The 2-point overall difference reflects a 4-point swing in Ryan’s favor. A previous USA Today-Suffolk University poll showed Vance leading by 2 points over Ryan, with 47 percent to 45 percent. That survey’s margin of error was 4.4 percentage points.

The new poll results also suggest a close race between the two candidates as both parties look to secure another seat in the upper chamber.

The Ohio Northern University poll was conducted Oct. 11-15 and surveyed 668 likely Ohio voters.
