Poll: Strong leading, many undecided in AL-5 runoff

Likely Republican runoff voters in north Alabama favor Madison County Commissioner Dale Strong, 46% over Huntsville School Superintendent Casey Wardynski, 31%, to replace outgoing Congressman Mo Brooks of Huntsville, according to a new poll.

Nearly 24% of voters were still undecided.

Strong led on Election Day with nearly 47% of the vote. Wardynski came in second in the six-man primary with nearly 23%.

According to the polling firm Cygnal, Wardynski has “an anchor with one-third of voters holding an unfavorable opinion of him.”

Strong meanwhile is consistently favorable among every voter group.

 

 

Voters were also surveyed about issues concerning them.

Lowering gas prices and making America energy independent was the top issue, followed by fighting inflation and reducing the cost of living.

Cygnal surveyed 400 likely Republican primary runoff voters on June 5 and 6 . The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.89%.

The 5th Congressional district includes all of Madison, Limestone, Morgan and Jackson counties and the eastern half of Lauderdale County.

Kathy Warner-Stanton is the Democratic nominee for the office.
