LANKFORD UP DOUBLE-DIGITS IN RECENT SURVEY OF
U.S. SENATE RACE IN OKLAHOMA
Oklahoma City, OK – The James Lankford for U.S. Senate campaign today released a survey of n=501 likely Republican primary voters that shows Congressman Lankford with a double-digit lead over state legislator T.W. Shannon. This is the second publicly released survey in two weeks that shows Lankford with a growing lead in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Tom Coburn.
The campaign’s survey, conducted by respected polling firm The Tarrance Group, reveals the following ballot position:
Lankford - 43% (+10)
Shannon - 33%
Brogdon - 5%
Undecided - 18%
Lankford’s significant lead includes winning among several critically important subgroups:
Habitual Primary Voters - Lankford +24
Seniors - Lankford +14
Very Fiscally Conservative - Lankford +11
Very Socially Conservative - Lankford +11
Oklahoma City Media Market Lankford +36 (home of the majority of GOP Primary Voters)
The survey was conducted over a three day period, May 12-14, 2014 and has a margin of error of ±4.5%.
The questionnaire was executed by live interviewers and included a representative number of cell phones. Lankford’s ballot position has been buoyed by his recent statewide television ad buy, and indicates the softness of Shannon’s previous jump in the polls following Shannon’s own run of television ads.
Congressman James Lankford, Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, has been endorsed by conservative leaders including former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Jay Sekulow, and has received support from fellow members of Congress including South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy.
