First Post-Debate Poll Puts Dr. Oz Three Points Ahead of John Fetterman in Pennsylvania

“In a breaking poll from InsiderAdvantage Republican Mehmet Oz leads Democrat John Fetterman in a tight race for Pennsylvania’s open U.S. Senate seat”

A new poll, the first poll from Pennsylvania since John Fetterman’s disastrous debate performance, puts Dr. Oz up three points over Fetterman.

This isn’t much of a surprise, in fact it’s probably the beginning of a trend.

From Insider Advantage:

Oz ahead of Fetterman, Shapiro leads Mastriano in new PA poll

In a breaking poll from InsiderAdvantage Republican Mehmet Oz leads Democrat John Fetterman in a tight race for Pennsylvania’s open U.S. Senate seat, while in the governor’s race Democrat Josh Shapiro continues to hold off Republican Doug Mastriano by eight points. In a bonus question – 54% of respondents said that they thought Oz won the recent Senate debate, to only 21% for Fetterman.


U.S. Senate:

John Fetterman (D) – 45%

Mehmet Oz (R) – 48%

Erik Gerhardt (Libertarian) – 3%

Someone else/Undecided/No opinion – 4%


Josh Shapiro (D) – 50%

Doug Mastriano (R) – 42%

Matt Hackenburg (Libertarian) – 4%

Someone else/Undecided/No opinion – 4%

See the full details here.

We all expected this, right?

This is an amazing detail:

You have to wonder if voters feel betrayed by the media for concealing Fetterman’s condition.

Stephen L. Miller made that point yesterday at the New York Post:

Media undermines their credibility again with Fetterman coverup

Given Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman’s disastrous debate performance Tuesday night and his campaign’s shameful coverup of his condition to voters, the question has to be asked: Where does Dasha Burns go for her apology from her own colleagues?

When the NBC reporter had a one-on-one interview with the Democratic candidate this month, she noted two things that had her fellow journalists, both at her network and in her industry, up in arms. First, she revealed the Fetterman campaign demanded, as a condition of the interview, he be allowed to use captioning software that translated her questions to him on a computer. Fetterman had not done a single one-on-one, live or recorded interview, through the duration of his limited campaign, so this was eye-opening to voters and viewers. And she remarked that “in small talk” with Fetterman, “it wasn’t clear he understood what I was saying.”

This led to a social media cavalcade of abuse directed at Burns for simply committing the act of noticing Fetterman’s condition.

Read the whole thing.

If Oz pulls this off, you will hear a gnashing of teeth out of the beltway not heard since the fall of 2016.

Why would you vote for a Senator you would not accept as your Uber driver?

    Are you kidding? Fetterman would take you to the wrong part of town and demand a tip before you stepped out to get beaten, robbed and killed.

    If Mehmet Oz had a stroke and Fetterman dropped out of the race to be replaced by Obama I would vote for Mehmet Oz in a nanosecond.

    I care about actual issues. I don’t want the Supreme Court to get stacked with people who believe opposition to CRT and radical gender theory requires you be locked up in GITMO. I don’t want the FBI to be given more power. I don’t want any Biden judges appointed ever. I don’t want any of Biden’s political appointees in government to get approval either (remember when Obama resorted to claiming recess appointment when the senate was in session and his appointees got tossed out by the Supreme Court? I want Biden to be that desperate with that recent supreme court precedent).

    Democrats have their beliefs and believe in them as strongly as we do. This election matters it determines if Biden could do everything he has ever wanted to get done in the senate and so much of that does not require house approval. They want the answer to be yes as much as I want it to be no. I should hope this hypothetical of Mehmet Oz becoming as functional as Fetterman would also have you vote against Obama running for his second senate term.

Steal might already be over….but the people that voted early are dupes then I guess.

It’d be great to see an early voter sue someone with something that can stick over this blatantly obvious farce.

    The only thing that matters is the balance of control in congress.

      Which is why the (D)s will do anything it takes to get this ogre elected. And when it can’t function in the Senate, they’ll throw him in the trash and replace him with someone who can vote to trash the country under his own power.

        No kidding. Just this morning Paul Perlosi reportedly underwent brain surgery in San Francisco. Upon wheeling the patient into recovery, nurses were surprised to find John Fetterman lying there with a new brain.

        Democrat leaders are hoping that Fetterman will be able to speak two or three clear sentences between now and election day.

If you go deeper into the poll it looks like R’s were under sampled a bit as well, quite possibly the lead is larger, and I don’t think that we can expect the undecides to break for Fetterman.

How can someone be undecided after seeing portions of that train wreck. I can only expect these numbers to get worse.

    Babylon Bee: Republicans Accused Of Ableism For Pointing Out Democrat Candidate Is A Blind Possum With Brain Damage

      Whoopee Peabody in reply to henrybowman. | October 28, 2022 at 9:34 pm

      Why did Fetterman need a wall mounted caption device for the debate?

      “Because even a blind possum finds an acorn once in awhile if you open it’s mouth and shove it in.”

Rumor has it Pennsylvania is expecting a 110% registered voter turnout in some precincts.

Seriously though, we have to remember that in any Democrat controlled polity if they have their way, there is no such thing as an honest election. They will crank up the normal means of theft, delay the count election night so that votes can be adjusted, and fight in court in front of Democrat judges in order to win. While the margin of fraud is large, the margin of victory for any non-RINO, non-Democrat has to be larger.

If they can pull off a victory for Fetterman after that cluster copulation, then it proves that the entire electoral paradigm is false; with all that implies.

I am hoping for the best, Oz would be great, Mastriano would be fantastic. I fear Shapiro will be a worse tyrant than Emperor Wolf was. He ran Covid like the state was his kingdom.

They totally got away with fraud in 2020 and no one got caught, no reason they wouldn’t try it again

Was Mastriano a mistake?

A poll that has Mehhmet Oz this close to 50% (the magic number in any election) is unlikely to be a biased and partisan poll (if it was why encourage Republicans to turn out by showing that the senate race is competitive and they could be the difference?). Is this poll under sampling rural PA or was Mastriano a mistake?

Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz’s campaign is reportedly playing the recent Senate debate with Democrat John Fetterman on repeat Friday outside the Pennsylvania Democrat party fundraiser in Philadelphia.

The fundraiser will include President Joe Biden (D) and Vice President Kamala Harris (D), according to NBC News correspondent Dasha Burns.
