Republican Dewey Bartlett Jr. and Democrat Tom Adelson held wide leads in their respective mayoral primaries heading into the final week of the campaign, according to an Oklahoma Poll conducted Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.
Three hundred likely voters from each party were surveyed, with 53 percent of Republicans choosing Bartlett from among the 11 GOP candidates and 54 percent of Democrats picking Adelson in a five-candidate field.
Republican Chris Medlock, with 15 percent of the GOP vote, was the only other candidate in either party to reach double digits. None of Adelson’s opponents in the Democratic primary received more than 2 percent.
Twenty-one percent of Republicans and 39 percent of Democrats said they didn’t know who they would vote for.
