The campaign for State Rep. Barry Moore, who’s running for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District against incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby, has published the results of a poll it commissioned.
In a test ballot, 34% of the respondents said they’d vote for Roby, 21% chose Moore, 5% chose a third candidate, Tommy Amason, while 40% of the respondents said they’re undecided.
With some 9 months to go until next summer’s actual primary vote, the poll’s “favorability” ratings were also noteworthy. The poll showed Roby with 34% favorable and 43% unfavorable ratings.
As expected, the incumbent Roby enjoyed high name recognition, while only 6% said they’d never heard of her. 37% of respondents didn’t recognize Moore’s name, and 75% had no knowledge of Amason.
