A new independent poll in the Republican primary for the Alabama Senate race has been released. This poll was conducted by WT&S consulting and was not conducted on the behalf of any candidate in the race. The polling was conducted on February 9th and February 10th of this year with 1,048 self-identified Republicans surveyed.
Of those surveyed when asked “If the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate were held today would you be more likely to vote for Bradley Byrne, Arnold Mooney, Roy Moore, Tommy Tuberville, or Jeff Sessions?” Jeff Sessions came in first with 32% of the vote. Tommy Tuberville was second with 30% and Bradley Byrne came in third what’s 22%.
Roy Moore registered with 7% of the respondents supporting him and Arnold Mooney came in with two and a half percent. No other candidate in the race got support from any of the respondents reached in the poll. 7% of the respondents remained undecided or uncommitted.
The pole had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.38%
Pollster John Wahl with WT&S consulting said, ” this race is very fluid and could change over the next few weeks.”
WT&S consulting conducted polling in the 2017 special election for this same seat when some observers said that their polling was the most accurate in that race. WT&S has also conducted polling for other candidates from city council races all the way up statewide office holders in the past as well. They’ve also done issue oriented polling, including conducting a poll on the behalf of Dean Young and the stop the tolls movement in relation to the toll proposal for the I-10 Mobile River Bridge and Bayway project. They also hope to conduct tracking polling for the US Senate race all the way through the primaries and runoff.
