New Poll Shows Riley Ahead

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery AL – The poll by the Press-Register and University of South Alabama shows 53-percent of likely voters would choose Republican Governor Bob Riley ... 25-percent will vote for Democratic Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley ... and 22-percent were undecided. Libertarian candidate Loretta Nall was apparently not included in the poll. The survey also indicates that Riley is receiving support from African-Americans and other Democrats. More than one out of five Democrats polled said they will vote for Riley. The same for three out of ten black respondents. In addition, the poll shows that Mrs. Baxley is less popular than Riley among female voters -- 49 percent of likely women voters chose Riley to 31 percent for Baxley. However, a Baxley spokesperson says they still feel confident considering the final primary polls for the Democratic race were off by 15 percent. The latest survey results have a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points.
