A survey of Montana voters shows Congressman Steve Daines with a double-digit lead over either democratic candidate in the race for a U.S. Senate seat.

Public Policy Polling released the results of the survey Tuesday. According to the poll, if the election were held today and Daines faced former Lieutenant Governor John Bohlinger, Daines would win with 51 percent of the vote. Bohlinger would get 36 percent, while 13 percent said they were not sure who they would vote for.

If Daines faced current Lieutenant Governor John Walsh, Daines would win with 52 percent of the vote. Walsh would get 35 percent, while 13 percent of voters said they were not sure.

Interestingly, the majority of those polled said they do not approve of Daines' job performance. 42 percent said they disapprove of his work in the House. 37 percent said they approve while 21 percent said they were not sure.

The poll surveyed 952 Montana voters and lists a margin of error of between three and five percent.

Republican Champ Edmunds has also announced a run for the senate as has democrat Dirk Adams. The primary will be held in June with the general election taking place in November.
