Oklahoma poll: Fallin out front; state superintendent race still close
By RANDY KREHBIEL World Staff Writer
Gov. Mary Fallin leads Democratic challenger Joe Dorman by 11 percentage points as Tuesday’s voting deadline nears, and the contest for state superintendent of schools remains neck and neck, according to the latest Oklahoma Poll.
The telephone survey of 404 likely voters was conducted Oct. 25-29 by SoonerPoll, and has a 4.87 percent margin of error.
Just under 50 percent of those surveyed say they intend to vote for Fallin on Tuesday, compared to just under 40 percent who said they’ll vote for Dorman.
Two independents received less than 3 percent, and 9 percent were undecided.
In the superintendent’s race, Republican Joy Hofmeister was at 43 percent and Democrat John Cox at 40 percent, with a substantial 17 percent undecided.
