Randy Neugebauer Shows Comfortable Lead Over Republican Primary Opponents in Poll
A poll shows that Lubbock’s U.S. Congressman is leading his nearest opponent by a seven to one margin.
Congressman Randy Neugebauer’s campaign released the results of their recent internal poll, which shows that Neugebauer has a comfortable lead over Republican Primary challengers Dr. Donald May and Chris Winn.
According to the Neugebauer Campaign, Neugebauer was favored by 70 percent of those polled, as opposed to May’s eight percent and Winn’s six percent.
The poll was conducted by pollster Glen Bolger and his national firm, Public Opinion Strategies. Polling took place from February 1st through the 3rd among 300 likely GOP Primary voters.
The district-wide survey carries a margin of error of +/- 5.6 percent.
A press release from the Neugebauer campaign says that 15 percent of likely Republican primary voters in Texas’ 19th District are undecided in the race.
The results continue, showing that 98 percent of likely voters have heard of Neugebauer, and his image is at 74 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable. May and Winn reportedly have name recognition below 50 percent.
“I am very encouraged by our strong position as we head into the final weeks of the primary campaign,” said Neugebauer. “It is gratifying to know the hard work my staff and I have put in to fighting President Obama’s attacks on West Texas and the Big Country has paid off with deep and broad support throughout the district.”
Early voting begins for the 2014 Primaries on Tuesday, February 18th and will run through Friday, February 28th. The Primaries will be held on March 4th.
