Poll: Fetterman, Shapiro Extend Leads


At the halfway pole in the 2022 general election race, it appears that the horses wearing the Democratic blue silks are extending their leads.

In a poll commissioned by Pittsburgh Works Together and conducted by Public Opinion StrategiesJohn Fetterman and Josh Shapiro held commanding 18 and 15 point advantages, respectively, over their GOP opponents in the chase for the U.S. Senate and Pennsylvania governor’s mansion.

Fetterman received 51 percent to just 33 percent for Mehmet Oz in the poll of 600 registered voters. The lieutenant governor of the Keystone State led 46-29 when respondents were asked if they would definitely vote for the candidate. Ten percent of those polled were undecided or unsure.

Shapiro hit the 50 percent mark on the nose in the gubernatorial poll, while Republican opponent Doug Mastriano received 35 percent. The current Pennsylvania Attorney General retained that 15-point advantage (45-30) when respondents were asked if they “definitely” support the candidate. Eleven percent of those polled were undecided or unsure.

POS has received a pollster rating of A- from FiveThirtyEight.com with a historical average statistical bias of +1.5 percent for Republicans.

The poll was conduced by POS from August 7-10 with a margin of error of +/- 4.0%.

In the polling averages compiled by PoliticsPA, Fetterman holds a 10.2 percentage point lead over Oz, while Shapiro is up by 8.4 points against Mastriano.

  1. LET THEM EAT CRUDITE! Oz is an absolute CLOWN…multi-mansion owning snake oil salesman carpetbagger; while Mastriano is a dangerous insurrectionist who wants to force his religious zealotry down everyone’s throats.

  2. Love the above comments. I don’t have to say anything to bash Oz and Dung Mastriano, because the above voters of PA already said it all.

  3. Still waiting for a legitimate poll. FOXNEWS was the last one. These new ones are partisan push polls.

  4. Shapiro has done nothing but bash Senator Mastriano on TV. He has not addressed any of the important issues affecting the citizens of PA. Mastriano is extreme? Extreme is sitting back and watching while thousands of sick senior citizens are sent to their deaths in nursing homes. Extreme is masking our children and mandating jabs for jobs. Extreme is suing the Little Sisters of the Poor over contraception pills. He won’t debate Mastriano unless the MSM moderates.

    1. I’m a Republican. I’ll
      Be voting for Shapiro. Doug’s anti-Islamic, anti-gay, Christian nationalism IS extreme: the PA GOP fucked this one up. We have a crazy nominee against a center-left, moderate Democrat. I’m going with the moderate!

      1. I agree. Mastriano want to have a Christian state and stokes hate and already has shown by words that he has no problem wiping out our votes with the swipe of a pen. Shows no restraint and his Q stuff if ridiculous. He’s in league with the Tangerine Traitor. As for Oz, he lied about his Turkey ties and still votes there? He doesn’t even live in PA either. Shapiro did a good job in Texas v.
        Pennsylvania which requested ALL Pa votes be wiped out which SCOTUS denied. I am sure Fetterman and Shapiro will represent ALL Pennsylvanians regardless of party.

    2. Bro you are smoking the trump koolaid so hard right now, begging for the MSM when your mind is absolutely smashed by the Bullshit the Fox News cow poops out.

  5. It’s an absolute disaster for the Republicans. The two worst possible choices are at the top of their ticket for Senator and Governor. Oz goes to Los Angeles for a “Walk of Fame” ceremony right after the primary and then goes on a quick vacation while Sen. Doug is continually on his heels banning the media at his PUBLIC speaking events and is testifying at an insurrection hearing about an insurrection that he attended in DC! Can the R’s have two worse candidates? I think not.
