Oz takes a slight lead in PA, locked in a statistical tie with McCormick

Famed doctor Mehmet Oz has a slight lead in the U.S. Senate Republican primary from Pennsylvania, but remains locked in a statistical tie with businessman Dave McCormick, according to a recent poll.

According to the survey conducted by the Trafalgar Group, 22.7% of likely GOP primary voters would vote for Oz if the election were held today. Coming in second, 19.7% of Republicans in Pennsylvania would vote for McCormick.

The next closest candidate is Kathy Barnette, who got 18.4% of those polled. However, 17% of likely GOP primary voters in the state remain undecided.

The poll comes just a week after former President Donald Trump endorsed Oz. “I believe that Mehmet Oz will be best suited to win the general election against a radical left-wing Democrat who seeks to do unthinkable harm to our country,” Trump said.

Surprisingly, support for Oz has dwindled since the Trafalgar Group’s previous poll was taken two months ago. Oz had 27.4% support in February, compared to McCormick’s 15.9%.

The poll found that the Pennsylvania GOP primary for governor is also statistically tied between candidates Doug Mastriano and former Rep. Lou Barletta. Mastriano has 21.9% support to Barletta’s 18.8%.

The Trafalgar Group conducted the latest poll April 11-13 and polled 1,074 likely 2022 GOP voters. The poll’s margin of error is ±2.9%.

Pennsylvania’s primary is next month on April 17.
