RMG Research, polling for the Deseret News and the Hinckley Institute at the University of Utah (9/7-12; 800 UT-4 likely voters), just returned their data and shows freshman Rep. Ben McAdams (D-Salt Lake City) holding a slight 45-41% lead over businessman and former NFL football player Burgess Owens (R). At the end of July, RMG found the race tied between the two men with each attracting 35% support while the survey brandished a large undecided factor. Even earlier in July, Moore Information found Mr. Owens carrying an eye-opening nine-percentage point advantage.
Combined, the polls tell us that the 4th District race, in a seat that stretches from south Salt Lake County and all the way through part of Sanpete County, will once again produce a close final result. In 2018, Mr. McAdams unseated then-Rep. Mia Love (R) by just 694 votes of almost 270,000 ballots cast.
