CHARLESTON (WVVA) - If the election were held today, Mitt Romney would carry the Mountain State, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducted by R.L. Repass & Partners Inc., for the Charleston Daily Mail, was released Friday.

Among the 401 West Virginians surveyed, 52 percent said they would vote for the Republican Romney, while 38 percent supported President Barack Obama. Ten percent were undecided.

In other races, 66 percent said they support Joe Manchin in his Senate re-election bid, compared to 27 percent for GOP challenger John Raese. Seven percent were undecided.

Looking ahead to a hypothetical 2014 showdown, Democrat Jay Rockefeller's long tenure could be threatened. The incumbent trailed possible challenger Shelley Moore Capito in the poll by a 48-44 margin.

On the state level, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin held a 56-35 lead over Bill Maloney in the pair's rematch from the special gubernatorial election in fall of 2011.

Incumbents also held leads in the race for Attorney General where Darrell McGraw led Patrick Morrisey 57-33 and State Treasurer where John Perdue led Mike Hall 54-34.

In the race for Supreme Court, surveyed voters chose Robin Jean Davis and Tish Chafin out of the four candidates vying for two spots. 29 percent, however, were undecided.
