The Tarrance Group, polling for Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R), projects their client to be in strong position as we enter the primary campaign’s final two weeks. The poll (5/20-22; 602 AL likely Republican primary voters) finds Gov. Ivey holding a stout 58-18% lead over Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. Baptist minister Scott Dawson is next with 7%, while state Sen. Bill Hightower (R-Mobile) posts only 5% support. The Governor’s positive personal image stands at 75% among the GOP respondents tested for this survey. It appears Gov. Ivey is a lock to win the party nomination, and will likely face either Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox or former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb once the Democratic primary is settled. The Alabama primary will be held June 5th.
