New Poll Shows Jonesboro's McDaniel Well Ahead in AG's Race

OCTOBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 5:26 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A new poll shows Democrat Dustin McDaniel of Jonesboro well ahead of Republican opponent Gunner DeLay in the race for state attorney general.

Opinion Research Associates conducted the survey by telephone for the Arkansas News Bureau-Stephens Media.  Of the 500 likely voters surveyed surveyed September 26-30, 53 percent said they would vote for McDaniel.  Twenty-eight percent said they would vote for DeLay.  The rest were undecided.

McDaniel said he was encouraged by the results.  DeLay said the poll results point to a close race because he believes it oversamples Democrats.

McDaniel is a state representative from Craighead County.  DeLay is a former state senator from Fort Smith. 

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
