A new poll shows President Trump’s recent trip to West Virginia is giving Republican Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey a boost heading into November.

The data, released by Harper Polling and 35th PAC Thursday, puts Morrisey down just six points to Democrat Joe Manchin.

Although the incumbent Democrat leads 47 to 41 in the survey, 12% remain undecided.

The poll is good news for Morrisey, who saw himself down 10 points in a poll last month.

Additionally, the survey shows the president has a 63% job approval rating, including 94% from Republicans.

This comes after the president visited West Virginia earlier this month.

President Trump also called out Manchin during the rally, saying Morrisey will support his agenda while Manchin will vote with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
