Republican primary Senate candidate Ben Sasse of Nebraska is six points ahead of Shane Osborn and nine points ahead of Sid Dinsdale in the latest poll.

Thirty-one percent of Nebraskans support Sasse in the upcoming Republican primary, 25 percent favor Osborn, and Dinsdale has 22 percent of the vote with the other candidates all earning 5 or fewer percentage points in the poll commissioned by Sasse's campaign of 507 Nebraskans taken April 26-28, National Review Online reported.

However, 14 percent still say they are undecided on who they will support in the May 13 election.

All three leading candidates have favorability ratings well over 50 percent, but differ significantly in their unfavorable numbers — Sasse has 18.4 percent, Osborn has 25.8 percent, and Dinsdale has 12 percent.

The Sasse campaign told National Review that Osborn's negative numbers have gone up since he began launching negative ads against the Midland University president and former Bush Administration official.

A Breitbart/Polling Company poll taken in March had Osborn with an 11-point lead over Sasse, and a Conservative Intel Poll taken in February had the two neck-in-neck, with Osborn getting 30.40 percent of the vote and Sasse earning 29 percent.

Sasse has received the support of both former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who also spoke at a Sasse rally in Nebraska on Sunday.

He has also been endorsed by the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, and FreedomWorks, which recently changed its endorsement from Osborn to Sasse.
