According to a recent Emerson College Polling poll, Democratic Sen. Jon Tester and former President Trump are both outpacing their closest rivals among Montana voters.

According to the poll, 39 percent of Montana voters prefer Tester for reelection, as opposed to 35 percent who support Republican Tim Sheehy for the Senate.

21 percent remained undecided, while 6 percent indicated they would vote for a different candidate.

When compared to President Biden, who is also up for reelection in 2024, Trump has a 49 percent to 28 percent advantage.

7 percent of respondents were still unsure, while another 16 percent said they supported someone else.

12 percent of Trump supporters intend to support Democratic candidate Tester in 2024, the report claims. Kimball added that Tester’s support among independents and women in the state is a contributing factor in this.

Republicans are looking at Tester’s Senate seat as a chance to increase their representation in the upper chamber in 2024.

However, the incumbent Democrat had encouraging results in the third quarter fundraising figures announced this week, garnering more over $5 million for his reelection campaign as opposed to Sheehy’s around $2.8 million.

The credibility interval for the 447 registered voters surveyed by Emerson College Polling between October 1 and 4 was plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.
