A new Talk Business-Hendrix College Poll conducted Thursday, May 10 finds voters remain undecided about who they want to replace the retiring Mike Ross.
23% Q. Byrum Hurst
22% Gene Jeffress
11% D.C. Morrison
44% Don't know
"Hurst has been spending some funds on paid media, while Jeffress did begin the race with some name ID in south central and southeast Arkansas because of his and his brother's near decade of holding elective office," said Roby Brock, executive editor of Talk Business. "I have to say there is little that might happen between now and Election Day to sway a solid majority of the undecided vote to one particular candidate. This race looks headed to a run-off."
The poll asked voters if they had already participated in the Democratic primary and, if they did, respondents were asked to name the candidate for whom they voted, according to Talk Business. Additional poll participants included frequent Democratic primary voters who said they intended to vote in this year's primary.
