POLL: Womack Leads Third District Congressional Race, Numbers Triple Nearest Competitors

Rogers Mayor and Republican Congressional candidate Steve Womack said today he was encouraged by poll results showing him with a strong lead in the race for Arkansas’ Third Congressional District.
The survey, conducted by the Washington D.C. polling firm of Wilson Research Strategies, shows Womack leading the field by a significant margin. Thirty-one percent of likely GOP primary voters support the Rogers Mayor. His nearest competitors, Cecile Bledsoe and Gunner DeLay, poll at 12% and 11%, respectively.

What is more, Womack has a nearly 10-1 favorable to unfavorable ratio, with 53% of respondents holding a positive view of the Mayor with only 5% holding a negative view. Bledsoe has a 26:7 favorable/unfavorable ratio while Delay has a 31:15 favorable/unfavorable ratio.

Commenting on the results, Womack said:
“I continue to be humbled by the support I have received across the Third District.

I know the only poll that really counts is the one on Election Day. But it is great to know that our message for strong conservative leadership and reform is resonating with the voters.

I am thankful for the many volunteers and financial supporters who are helping me. I deeply appreciate their faith and trust. They are the ones making the difference in this campaign by making phone calls, distributing literature, putting up signs and working our volunteer nights at the campaign headquarters. It’s their hard work and dedication that will see us through to victory.”
