Fifth District Congresswoman Mary Fallin has a clear lead in the 2010 Oklahoma governor’s race, a new Oklahoma Poll has found.
Fallin, an Oklahoma City Republican, was the overwhelming choice of GOP voters surveyed and was the pick of the majority of respondents in head-to-head matchups against Democrats Drew Edmondson and Jari Askins.
The Jan. 2-5 survey of likely voters by SoonerPoll.com included 325 Democrats, 267 Republicans, 28 independents and one Libertarian. The breakdown reflects the state’s actual voter registration and recent voter participation patterns.
More than two-thirds of the Republicans surveyed say they favor Fallin, with 16 percent going for Owasso state Sen. Randy Brogdon and a similar share undecided.
