Poll: Dem. Brown leads GOP's Mandel in Ohio race

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new newspaper poll shows that Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown has opened up a 10-point lead over Republican challenger Josh Mandel.

The poll published Monday by The Columbus Dispatch shows the first-term Democratic senator leading Mandel, the state treasurer, by 49% to 39%. In the first Dispatch poll Aug. 26, the two were tied at 44%.

The mail poll of 1,662 randomly selected likely Ohio voters was taken from Sept. 19 through Saturday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2%age points.

The transformation in the Senate contest parallels that of the presidential race in the battleground state, which went from deadlocked in the Dispatch survey to a 9%age point margin for President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney.
