Sherrod Brown Losing Ground Against Republican Challengers: POLL

A Thursday poll found that the Democratic Ohio Senator Sherrod brown’s lead against his three Republican opponents has decreased anywhere between 2 and 8 points since November.

In the last Emerson College poll, Brown led businessman Bernie Moreno with 10 points. Secretary of State Frank LaRose was 5 points behind and state senator Matt Dolan 3 points ahead. According to Emerson College’s January survey, the senator now has a 1-point lead over Dolan and a 2-point edge over Moreno and LaRose in potential general election head-to-head matchups.

The poll showed that 42% of GOP voters are still undecided. Moreno, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, led the Republican field, with 22%. LaRose was second at 21%, and Dolan came in third at 15%. Moreno’s support for the Republican Primary on March 19 increased by 12 points. He is endorsed and supported by Donald Trump.

Moreno made a statement saying, “I am grateful for the support our grassroots-driven Ohio campaign receives.” “Republicans from every corner of Ohio know that I have the message and the resources to unify our party and beat Sherrod in November. I look forward in continuing to spread our America-First message throughout our state.”


The Cook Political Report has classified Brown’s seat in the “Toss-Up” category, along with other contentious Senate elections in Montana and Arizona.

According to a Federal Election Commission filing, Brown raised more than all his GOP opponents in the fourth quarter of fundraising, bringing in a total of $6.6 million. The senator had $14.6 million in cash when he entered the campaign year.

According to Medium Buying, the senator’s campaign will launch its first television advertisement for the 2024 cycle Thursday. Brown has reserved 316 000 dollars worth of advertisements until February 5.

According to FEC reports, LaRose had the highest amount of cash during this time frame among the Republican candidates, with $812 539. This was followed by Moreno at $800 295 and Dolan at $357 652, respectively. Dolan and Moreno, however, had more cash in their campaign accounts by the end the year, with $4.8 and $2 million respectively.

Ben Kindel said in a press release that Ohioans were suffering under the failed policies Sherrod Biden and Joe Biden. “They want an experienced conservative like Frank LaRose, who will fight for them on Capitol Hill.”

In the survey, Trump led President Joe Biden by 47% to 36% in Ohio. RealClearPolitics’ (RCP) average shows that both men are still leading their respective parties. However, Trump leads Biden by just 1.7 points in a possible head-to-head contest in November.

The Emerson College poll polled 1,844 Ohio registered voters between January 23 and 25, with an error margin of plus or minus 2,3%.

The DCNF did not receive a response from either the Brown or Dolan campaigns.
