Public Policy Polling polled head-to-head matchups (.pdf) for the 2010 Alabama governor’s race. Republican candidate Bradley Byrne leads Democrats Artur Davis (39-35) and Ron Sparks (41-27). The margin of error is +/- 3.8%.
Davis leads all other Republicans: 41-38 against Roy Moore, 37-35 vs. Tim James, and 39-31 over Kay Ivey. (The first two are within the margin of error.) With Davis showing “only” a 68-10 lead among African-Americans in the Byrne matchup, he has to be eying the undecided 22% and figuring to get the lion’s share.
No primary matchups were polled.
On its website, Public Policy Polling writes, “Given the wealth of strong candidates and how tightly bunched they are in this early polling it looks like this has the potential to be one of the more competitive races in the country next year.”
