Bruning Leads GOP Field in Dem Poll; But Nearly Half Undecided

September 20, 2011

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning leads the GOP pack in in the Cornhusker State according to new survey from a Democratic pollster, but nearly half of Republican respondents are undecided about the race.

With the support of 29 percent of registered Republicans, Bruning leads the way in the poll, conducted by Lake Research Partners for Bold Nebraska, a group opposed to the Keystone XL crude-oil pipeline. He's followed by state Treasurer Don Stenberg at 12 percent, state Sen. Deb Fischer at 8 percent and businessman Pat Flynn at 1 percent.

Bruning is the GOP frontrunner in the Senate race, but he's had a rough past few months marked by lackluster fundraising, an ethics complaint from Democrats, and a comment comparing welfare recipients to raccoons.

The poll of 604 general election voters was conducted from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 and included a sub-sample of 314 registered Republicans who were asked about the GOP primary. The survey of the primary carries a margin of error of +/- 5.6 percent.
