Via the AP: Poll: Riley poised for big win, GOP leads several races

Asked for whom they would vote if “the election for governor were held today,” 59 percent said the Republican, Riley; 31 percent said the Democrat, Baxley; and the rest were undecided.

In other races:

• Lieutenant governor candidate Republican Luther Strange was the choice for 50 percent of likely voters compared to 39 percent for Democrat Jim Folsom Jr. The remaining 11 percent were undecided.

• Republican Troy King had 51 percent in the attorney general’s race while his Democratic challenger John Tyson Jr. had 33 percent.

• Republican Beth Chapman was chosen by 42 percent of those surveyed, compared to 32 percent for incumbent Nancy Worley in the secretary of state’s race.

• In the campaign for chief justice, Democratic challenger Cobb was the choice of 44 percent, while Republican Nabers was preferred by 43 percent.

The only surprises here are that former Governor Folsom is as far behind Strange as he in the Lt. Gov. race and that Nabers is neck-and-neck with Cobb for the Chief Justice slot.
