According to a new CBS Poll Marsha Blackburn now has a 8 point lead in the Tennessee Senate race.



Republican Marsha Blackburn has an eight-point lead over Democrat Phil Bredsen in Tennessee’s U.S. Senate race, according to the latest poll from CBS News. 

The poll shows likely voters favor Blackburn over Bredesen 50% to 42%. 

Just last week, President Donald Trump held a Make America Great Again rally in Johnson City, intended to help Blackburn’s campaign. 

A September poll by NBC News/ Marist Survey had Bredesen leading Blackburn with a two-point lead.

Taylor Swift’s endorsement of Phil Bredsen is yet to have an impact on the Polls in Tennessee and it is unclear what type of affect she will have.
