GOP poll finds Blackburn margin shrinking against Bredesen

A political action committee that supports Republican Marsha Blackburn finds just a 3 percentage point margin between the congresswoman and Democrat Phil Bredesen in the U.S. Senate race.

That’s a drop from a 5-point advantage when the Committee to Defend the President polled the race in February, and a 9-point lead in December, The Tennessean reports. Both of those earlier polls also had Blackburn with more than 40% support.

PAC spokeswoman Amanda Head nevertheless declared “the future is still looking bright” for Blackburn.

“We will do whatever it takes to defend President Trump’s agenda from left-wing attacks and help Marsha as she prepares to support our president in the Senate,” she said.

The committee formerly known as the Stop Hillary PAC has said it plans to spend $1 million on TV and digital ads and to provide staff to help campaign for Blackburn.

The most recent poll of 551 likely voters was conducted over course of three days starting on July 9. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
