GOP Leads In AL, ND

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Even the leftists at Daily Kos and Research 2000 can paint a positive picture for Democrats in Alabama.

Artur Davis 41%
Ron Sparks 33%

Bradley Byrne 29%
Roy Moore 23%
Tim James 17%
Robert Bentley 9%
Bill Johnson 3%

Simone De Moore (D) 27%

This entire poll was done May 17-19 among 600 likely voters. Speaking of US Senate seats that should easily be won by Republicans, Rasmussen’s lone poll of the day comes from North Dakota.

John Hoeven (R) 72%
Tracy Potter (D) 23%

This poll was done May 18-19 among 500 likely voters. So as long as John Hoeven didn’t make up some history about serving in Vietnam, he should be a shoe in for election this fall.

The snow is already come down in bunches and the Federal Government has already been closed for yet another day tomorrow. Ignoring the snow in the Mid-Atlantic, a polling group called Baselice & Associates, Inc. has released a new primary poll for the state of Alabama on the Republican side showing who is leading in the bid to replace the incumbent Republican Bob Riley as Governor.

Bradley Byrne 20%
Roy Moore 17%.

The only two I have heard of out of that group are Byrne and Moore. They also collected some numbers for a 2012 Presidential primary in Alabama.

Other than Davis, Byrne and Moore, I don’t have the foggiest idea who any of these people are and am too lazy to look it up. This poll was done June 2-5 among 667 registered voters.

By the way, the PPP blog claims “We’re going to be putting out a pretty stunning poll on a Midwestern Governor up for reelection next year early next week.” I’m curious who it may be….

AL: Could Democrats Win Gubernatorial Race?

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Democratic Congressman Artur Davis is pondering a run for Governor of Alabama and he released a new poll from a Democratic polling firm that claims he is either tied with or ahead of three potential GOP candidates, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

Artur Davis (D) 42%
Kay Ivey (R) 42%

Artur Davis (D) 42%
Bradley Byrne (R) 42%

Artur Davis (D) 44%
Jack Hawkins (R) 39%

Kay Ivey is the current State Treasurer while Byrne is the Chancellor of the two-year college system in Alabama and Hawkins is the Chancellor of Troy University. No specific dates were given for the poll other than it was done earlier this month among 600 registered voters.

The current Governor of Alabama is Republican Bob Riley, who can’t seek another term.
