MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A new poll shows Gov. Kay Ivey with a 56-42 lead over challenger Walt Maddox going into the November election.

The survey was conducted by Cygnal, Brent Buchanan’s firm that is on contract with Ivey’s campaign.

Down ballot, the poll shows:

  • Republican Will Ainsworth leading Democrat Will Boyd 53-41 in the race for Lt. Gov.;
  • Republican Attorney General Steve Marshall leading challenger Joseph Siegelman 55-42; and
  • Republican Tom Parker leading Democrat Robert Vance 53-41 in the race for Chief Justice.

On the generic ballot, Republicans hold a 55-41 advantage over Democrats, the survey shows.

“It should be no surprise that Republicans are marching to victory in November in Alabama,” said Brett Cowden, VP of Client Strategy at Cygnal. “With a booming economy, unemployment at record lows, and a ticket featuring one of the most popular governors in the country, Republicans have the perfect recipe for a sweep in the general election.”  

The survey conducted July 24 – 25, with 1,027 likely general election voters. Read a full breakdown of the survey results on the Cygnal website.
