(WHTM) – A new Monmouth University poll has the Pennsylvania Republican Senate race in a virtual three-way tie between Mehmet Oz, Dave McCormick, and Kathy Barnette.
The poll, conducted in the days leading up to the abc27 U.S. Senate Republican primary debate, found Oz with 22% of voters “very likely” to vote for him, followed by McCormick with 19%, and Barnette with 18%.
Carla Sands received 9% and Jeff Bartos finished fifth with 7% in the poll of 407 registered Republicans.
The poll had a margin of error of +/- 4.9%, placing the top three candidates within striking distance of the nomination.
“This is the kind of environment where a number of candidates could emerge as the nominee. Oz has the highest name recognition but also the highest negatives. If McCormick and Oz beat each other up, though, Barnette could realistically end up on top,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
While Oz led among voters with 18% saying they were “very favorable” of him as a candidate, he also led in the “somewhat” and “very unvaforable” with double digit points.
When adding the “very” and “somewhat” favorable numbers, McCormick had 51% support, followed by Oz with 48% and Barnette with 37%. When voters were asked how likely they were to vote for a candidate, McCormick received 61% among the very and somewhat likely voters, while Oz and Barnette each received 51%.
Fifty-four percent of Oz voters said they were a “strong supporter” compared to only 30% of McCormick supporters and 17% of Barnette’s supporters.

We need either McCormick or Barnette to drop out so the Turk doesn’t win...
Knowing Pennsylvania voters, I predict they will go for Oz.
As a doctor, he is in the position of "discussing" medical policies...doesn't mean he agrees with it.
Great poll...A candidate gets upped and downed in the same breath.
The Dems will rig this by voting for McCormick to keep Oz from taking it.
I’m wrong....Only Republicans can vote in the Republican Primary.
I get to vote on this one my vote with Barnette right now.
I will vote Oz if he wins but not McCormick.
Turks a very complex subject Armenians know where they stand that’s for sure.
Israel does not call what happened to Armenian’s “genocide”.
Israelis if they know their history-heritage the first Jews to arrive lived under Ottoman rule.
David Ben-Gurion Israel’s first Prime Minister aspired to study Turkish law and even wanted Jewish volunteers for the Ottoman Empire at the start of World War I.
Eventually the British moved him in the other direction.
I don’t have Armenian in me but I do have Zionist in me so oops I’m not so hostile to Turks.
Israel and Turkey are befriending each other right now Erdogan and the Israeli President Herzog met not too many weeks ago.
What’s to stop the Rats from engaging in a little Operation Chaos?
GO MRS. BARNETTE !
In light of what I have learned here and on GAB, I’m pulling for any non-Oz.
McCormack and his China cash can drop out. Go Barnette!
I know I thought of changing to DEm so I could vote in Primary when Hillary was running for NY Senate. I would have voted for anyone except Sir Hillary.
The article does not say if there were any undecideds. An important point as you will see from the poll results below.
The 2010 Maine Governors race shows why primary polling is pretty useless.
Poll source Dates administered Otten LePage Mills Abbott Beardsley Poliquin Jacobson Undecided
MECPO May 22-June 2, 2010 17.0% 10.7% 22.1% 13.9% 5.9% 4.9% 1.4% 24.0%

Both polls had Paul LePage in second. One poll had 24% undecided and the other 47% undecided.
The final result of the primary
