Fetterman leads Oz by 5 points in Pennsylvania Senate race: Poll

Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman leads Republican Mehmet Oz by 5 points, according to a New York Times-Siena College poll published just over a week before election day.

About 49 percent of voters polled support Fetterman, while 44 percent support Oz.

The results are similar to other polls showing the lead the Democratic candidate held over Oz for much of the campaign, including a 6 point lead in a poll last week.

But the latest research comes after Fetterman struggled on stage during an anti-Oz debate last week.

The Democrat is still recovering from a stroke he suffered in May and has difficulty with auditory processing, which led to verbal errors and awkward answers during the debate.

Still, about 50 percent of likely voters in Pennsylvania view Fetterman favorably, according to a New York Times-Siena College poll.

By comparison, about 49 percent of likely voters view Oz favorably.

A majority of Pennsylvanians cite the economy as a top issue in the midterm elections, with 50 percent naming it as a top issue, the poll shows.

Only 34 percent cite social issues, such as abortion, gun control and democracy, as top concerns in the midterm elections.

The New York Times-Siena College poll was conducted Oct. 24-26 among 620 likely voters. The margin of error is 4.4 percentage points.
