A just-released recent Atlantic Media & Research survey (6/12-14 & 6/18-21; 440 AL registered voters) finds Gov. Kay Ivey (R) jumping out to a major 53-28% general election lead over Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox (D). Both Gov. Ivey and Mayor Maddox won their respective Republican and Democratic Party nominations outright on June 5th, so neither was forced into a July 17th run-off election.
As the poll suggests, Gov. Ivey is a strong favorite to win her first full term as the state’s chief executive. She became Governor after then-incumbent Robert Bentley (R) resigned from office in April of 2017 as part of a plea bargain arrangement over campaign finance charges.
