Poll shows Britt leading Brooks in Senate runoff

By TODD STACY, Alabama Daily News

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A new poll shows Katie Britt with a decisive lead over Mo Brooks in the Republican runoff for U.S. Senate.

The survey, taken by McLaughlin and Associates on behalf of the Alabama Forestry Association, showed Britt leading with 54.6% to Brooks 36.4% among likely Republican voters. Nine percent said they remain undecided.

See the full results below.

Interestingly, the poll also surveyed how voters voted in the original May 24 Primary election. On that question, 40.4% said they voted for Katie Britt, 30.2% said they voted for Mo Brooks and 16% said they voted for Mike Durant. That’s a representative undervote for both Britt and Durant, who won 45% and 23% on Election Day, but pretty close for Brooks who won 29%. Cross tabs aren’t availably, but these numbers would suggest that Durant voters are swinging toward Britt.

 

Also tested was the runoff election for Secretary of State. In that race, Jim Zeigler led with 34.4% to Wes Allen’s 28.2% with a full 37% undecided.

The poll surveyed 500 likely Republican runoff voters on June 6-9.
