Republican challenger Rick Berg and Democrat incumbent Rep. Earl Pomeroy both pointed to polls this week claiming a comfortable lead in the race for U.S. House.
In its October poll, Rasmussen Reports showed Berg holding 52 percent of likely voters’ support, compared to 42 percent for Pomeroy.
The poll surveyed 500 likely North Dakota voters earlier this week.
Results from last month showed Berg and Pomeroy in a dead-heat with a 3 percentage point spread between them. Berg has never trailed in polls released by Rasmussen.
In contrast, Pomeroy’s campaign touted results of a poll showing the incumbent with a large lead.
The conclusion comes from a “Prairie Poll” conducted in mid-October by a coalition of weekly newspapers around rural North Dakota. The poll showed 43.5 percent favoring Pomeroy, while 33.6 percent said they’d vote for Berg. The remaining 22.9 percent said they were still unsure who they’d vote for.
North Dakota voters will go to the polls Nov. 2.
