Mehmet Oz in statistical connection with John Fetterman


Mehmet Oz, the Trump-endorsed Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, is statistically tied with Democrat John Fetterman, the state’s lieutenant governor, according to a poll.

Oz has the support of 42% of likely Pennsylvania voters in the latest Insider Advantage poll. On the other hand, Fetterman finished just above Oz, with 45%.

However, the race is at a statistical stalemate as Fetterman’s narrow advantage lies within the poll’s ±4.2% margin of error.

Oz’s rise in the polls is significant as he was previously down 11 points in previous polls.

Insider Advantage’s survey of 550 likely voters Sept. 23-24 also found that eight percent of Pennsylvanians remain undecided with less than two months until November’s midterm elections.

These latest polling numbers come just days after Fetterman’s campaign sounded the alarm after being overtaken by Oz and other pro-Oz super PACs.

Fetterman’s campaign manager, Brendan McPhillips, recently issued a “wake-up call” in an internal memo warning that Republicans are “significantly outpacing us and communicating on the airwaves.”

Fetterman’s internal poll resembles the recent Insider Advantage poll, as McPhillips warned in his memo that Fetterman is “neck and neck with Oz.”

Insider Advantage President Matt Towery said the latest numbers from Pennsylvania indicate “a tight race” between Oz and Fetterman.

“Senior voters and women favor Fetterman by more than ten points, while men and voters under 65 are more likely to vote for Oz. Voters who describe themselves as independents are evenly split between the two leading candidates,” Towery said. “The percentage of undecided voters remains relatively high, and the percentage of undecided independent voters is generally high at 22 percent.”

Fetterman, who has had speech problems since suffering a stroke in May, finally agreed to debate Oz next month on October 25, two weeks before the midterm elections and more than a month after Pennsylvanians began voting early.
