These poll results mirror recent public polling that shows Manchin leading by double digits.
“Voters know that Joe Manchin is working with both parties to do what’s best for West Virginia,” said Grant Herring, communications director for the Manchin campaign. “Patrick Morrisey is so far behind because he can’t hide from his record of trying to take away coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, or his threats to file a lawsuit against West Virginia’s educators seeking better pay and benefits.”
