Republican wins ground in tight West Virginia House race: poll - The Hill

The Republican Carol Miller has overtaken Richard Ojeda (D) in the race to the seat of the 3rd District House in West Virginia, according to a poll released Tuesday.

A poll from Monmouth University shows that Miller relies on 48 percent of the probable middle centers in the state, compared with 45 percent who say they support Ojeda. The results of the poll come after earlier surveys of the district in the deep red West Virginia Ojeda showed with no less than a two-digit lead.

In a poll in Monmouth in June, Ojeda Miller led 9 points, according to Monmouth. Monmouth said in a press release with the poll on Tuesday that the voting share of Ojeda had remained about the same, while Miller had made progress among undecided voters.

"Ojeda's share in the mood has not really changed since the summer, while Miller's reputation has gone up," said Patrick Murray, Monmouth's voice guide. "These results are a sign of Republican voters returning to the herd in a district that is republican, especially in its support to the president."

Trump won the district with almost 50 points in the 2016 election. But Ojeda still managed to stay in the race.

Twenty-seven percent of voters rated health care as the main problem of the district, while concerns about abortion (16 percent) and job creation (15 percent) were the second and third place.
