Rasmussen: Manchin 49%, Raese 46%

In the West Virginia Senate race, Rasmussen showed Republican John Raese with a 7-point lead a week ago, but now puts Governor Joe Manchin on top 49% to 46%. It looks like Manchin has done an effective job of running away from his past support of Obamacare and hitting Raese for his comments that he'd like to get rid of the minimum wage. Manchin has a 4.8 point lead in the RCP average of polls.
