“Other” Candidates for U.S. Senate Poll Well in Ohio, Michigan

Source: Ballot Access News

This year, three candidates appear on the Ohio ballot for U.S. Senate: Democrat Sherrod Brown, Republican Josh Mandel, and independent Scott Rupert. A recent Survey USA poll shows these results: Brown 42%, Mandel 38%, Rupert 4%, undecided 14%, won’t vote 2%.

A recent Gravis Marketing Poll for the Michigan U.S. Senate race shows these results: Democrat Debbie Stabenow 48%, Republican Pete Hoekstra 39%, Libertarian Scotty Boman 7%, undecided or other 6%. The poll did not name the other candidates who are on the ballot, but they include Green Party and U.S. Taxpayers (Constitution) Party nominees.

If Boman polls at least 5%, the Libertarian Party will qualify for its own primary in 2014. Currently, the party is ballot-qualified and nominates by convention.
