A new poll shows Republican Dr. Oz leading Democrat John Fetterman by four points in the Senate race in Pennsylvania.
It’s a stunning turn of events in a race that looked completely different just a month ago.
Fetterman was leading throughout the summer.
Breitbart News reports:
PA Poll: GOP’s Dr. Mehmet Oz Leads Democrat John Fetterman by 4 in Senate Race
Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz has taken the lead from Democrat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race, while Republican State Sen. Doug Mastriano is right on Democrat Attorney general Josh Shapiro’s heels in the governor’s race, according to a poll.
The Wick Insights poll published Wednesday shows that 49.1 percent of the 1013 likely voters sampled are backing Oz, while 44.6 percent support Fetterman. Another 3.4 percent plan to vote for someone else, and 2.9 percent are undecided. A Fox 29/Insider Advantage poll from earlier this week showed the pair tied after Oz made significant gains in polls in recent months, and the current survey shows he has momentum in the home stretch.
In the governor’s race, Shapiro leads Mastriano by 2.1 percentage points, at 48.5 percent and 46.4 percent, respectively. Just 1.8 percent of respondents plan to vote for another candidate, and 3.4 percent are undecided. The Fox 29/Insider Advantage poll had the republican 7 points back.
This is amazing.
Oz (R) 49% (+4)
Fetterman (D) 45%

The debate between Oz and Fetterman is this week and the Fetterman campaign is already making excuses.
John Fetterman's team downplays expectations ahead of tomorrow's debate with Oz, noting that he was not a great debater before the stroke.

That debate will be one of the most watched in this election season.
And it will almost definitely have an effect on the race.
