Oz within striking distance of far-left Fetterman in PA Senate race

Republican Dr Mehmet Oz is within striking distance of his radical Democratic opponent John Fetterman in the US Senate race from Pennsylvania, according to a poll.

In the Susquehanna Polling and Research Poll released on Tuesday, Oz drew 44% of responses, putting him just five points behind Fetterman, who sat at 49%. The remaining seven percent of respondents were undecided or supported a different candidate.

Oz’s current numbers are tied with a pair of recent polls showing him closing the gap on Fetterman, who held a double-digit, or near double-digit, lead in several polls in recent months. A Trafalgar Group poll released Aug. 21 shows Oz within five points of its competitor, while an Emerson College poll released Aug. 25 puts Oz just four points behind.

In the current poll, Oz beats Fetterman with independents, drawing 50% and 40% of the population, respectively. Ten percent remain undecided or are considering supporting another candidate.

However, Fetterman seems to be creating more excitement within his own party by collecting 87% of Democratic support, while Oz got 78% of likely GOP voters. Nine percent of Republicans were either undecided or planning to vote for another candidate, while, shockingly, another thirteen percent voiced support for Fetterman, who has a drastically pro-criminal record as a politician and supports far-left politicians.

Fetterman, who is the state’s lieutenant governor, chairs the five-person board of pardons in Pennsylvania. Under his leadership, clemency recommendations for murderers and other lifers from the board to the governor skyrocketed.

What’s more, Fetterman has previously said he believes emptying Pennsylvania prisons by a third would only “make anyone less safe” if 33% of the Quaker state’s convicts remained behind bars.

Likely voters were also asked: “What are the two issues that will influence your vote the most?” in November. Attendees overwhelmingly noted “[I]inflation/economy” as the top issue (57%) as the consumer price index hit 40-year highs in 2022. The next most pressing issue was “[a]boriton rights”, which attracted 41% of responses, followed by “[t]axes/federal expenditures.

The poll sampled 718 likely voters from Aug. 22-28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
