RACINE, WI – The Randy Bryce for Congress campaign released the latest polling from Change Research. The poll finds Randy Bryce at 45% and Bryan Steil at 44%.
“Over the past month, Paul Ryan’s super PAC has spent millions of dollars blitzing the airwaves with very personal attacks and lies against Randy. But clearly the voters see right through these negative television ads– which is why Randy has pulled ahead of Bryan Steil,” said Campaign Manager David Keith. “This is a 3.5 point swing from two weeks ago and is a clear indicator that voters in Wisconsin’s 1st district aren’t buying these smears. Randy has and continues to fight for working families, and it’s the working families who will turn out in big numbers to vote on November 6th that’s going to propel Randy to Congress.”
“I first met Randy many many months ago in Washington, DC and I was impressed by his courage to stand up and take on some of the most powerful political forces in this country. And I told him, ‘Randy, you run, and you threaten these people, they’re going to throw millions of dollars against you in ugly, personal, and destructive ads,” said Senator Bernie Sanders. “And that’s exactly what they’ve done. They’ve thrown millions of dollars in ugly thirty-second ads against him. And based on the poll I saw today, it ain’t working—Randy is going to win.”
Polling was conducted by Change Research from October 19th to 21st, and the full polling memo can be found here.
