Public Poling Polling (D) has a new snap poll of the Nebraska Senate primary, conducted Monday night on the eve of the election, showing state Sen. Deb Fischer potentially on the verge of winning a huge upset over the former frontrunner for the Republican nomination, state Attorney General Jon Bruning.
The numbers: Fischer 37 percent, Bruning 33 percent, and former state Attorney General Don Stenberg 17 percent. The survey of likely voters was conducted on Monday with a small sample of just 272 respondents, and a margin of error of 5.9 percent.
Bruning was the frontrunner throughout most of this primary race — but then proceeded to get caught up in attacks with Stenberg, including ethical allegations against Bruning. Combined with a last-minute wave of third-party advertising against Bruning and for Fischer by businessman Joe Ricketts, the owner of the Chicago Cubs, the previously third-place Fischer has shot up in the polls.
The polls will close Tuesday night, at 9 p.m. ET.
