Early Club for Growth poll shows Brooks big lead, high name ID, strong approval numbers; Blanchard and Britt relative unknowns

In what is perhaps a way-too-early edition of gauging Alabama’s 2022 U.S. Senate, Club for Growth released polling data taken back in April giving an edge to U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) in head-to-head match-ups against former BCA head Katie Britt and former U.S. Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard.

According to the WPA Intelligence survey conducted on behalf of Club for Growth PAC of 509 likely GOP voters, Brooks leads in a three-way primary match-up with nearly 60% of the vote. Lynda Blanchard trails by 46 points with just 13% of the vote, and Katie Britt earns just 9%, with 19% of GOP primary voters undecided.

Brooks also has a commanding lead on name identification and favorable-unfavorable margins.

The poll shows Brooks with 83% name identification and a favorable-unfavorable spread of 57% favorable and 11% unfavorable. Both Britt and Blanchard have work to do to raise their name ID with tallies of 25% and 23%, respectively.

Polling also indicates there is even more upside for Brooks as three-quarters of respondents were unaware former President Donald Trump had endorsed the AL-5 congressman.
