Poll shows Fischer's lead is ten points

The U.S. Senate campaigns for Democrat Bob Kerrey and Republican Deb Fischer both took a positive view of World-Herald Poll results published Sunday.

Kerrey trailed Fischer by 10 percentage points in the statewide poll of 800 registered voters.

Kerrey spokesman Chris Triebsch said the results were "clear evidence that momentum is on our side" because of a poll that Fisher released in June that showed she was 25 points ahead. Daniel Keylin, a spokesman for Fischer, said the poll showed that she "is connecting with Nebraskans."

The poll was conducted Sept. 17-20 by Wiese Research Associates of Omaha. When narrowed to likely voters, the poll showed Kerrey trailing Fischer by 16 percentage points - 56 percent to 40 percent. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
