NEWLY-RELEASED INDEPENDENT POLL SHOWS TUBERVILLE CAMPAIGN CONTINUING TO SURGE IN GOP PRIMARY

27

Auburn – Alabama Daily News, one of the state’s most respected news aggregators and reporting services, on Wednesday released a new independent survey showing Coach Tommy Tuberville’s campaign for the U.S. Senate continuing to surge and well-positioned for securing a spot in the Republican run-off.

“With only a couple of weeks remaining, the Republican primary is entering the red zone, and this independent poll offers clear evidence that momentum is on our side,” Tuberville said. “Republican primary voters are clearly responding to our message of supporting President Donald Trump, draining the D.C. swamp, and sending a fresh face instead of career politicians to represent us in Washington.”

The survey, which was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy on behalf of ADN, Birmingham’s WBRC, and Huntsville’s WAFF, revealed:

Sessions 31
Tuberville 29
Byrne 17
Moore 5
Undecided 16

This poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida from Feb.4 – Feb. 6, 2020. A total of 625 registered Alabama voters were interviewed live by telephone statewide.

Those interviewed were randomly selected from a phone-matched Alabama voter registration list that included both land-line and cell phone numbers. Quotas were assigned to reflect voter registration by county.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than ± 4 percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the “true” figure would fall within that range if all voters were surveyed. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as a gender or age grouping.

This survey also includes an additional sampling of 400 likely Republican primary voters. These voters were only asked the questions relative to the GOP primary election. The margin for error on these results is ± 5 percentage points.
