A Dan Jones and Associates poll (Nov. 8-15; 619 adults; +/-3.94 percent) showed Lt. Gov. Brad Little (R) leading the primary with 21 percent, followed by Rep. Raul Labrador (R) and developer Tommy Ahlquist (R) at 17 and 14 percent respectively.

“Labrador leads the GOP pack among those who self-identified to the pollster that they are ‘very conservative’ politically. Labrador gets 35 percent of this demographic vote; Little 17 percent; and Ahlquist 15 percent.

“Ahlquist … leads among the LDS voters, getting 23 percent of the vote compared to Little’s 22 percent. Labrador gets 17 percent of the Mormon vote.

“Labrador … gets 22 percent of the vote there, compared to 21 percent for Little. Ahlquist comes in at 12 percent in that western district.”

“Ahlquist is better known in Boise, where he worked as an emergency room doctor and more recently has been a business/developer leader. … 16 percent of the 2nd Congressional District (which includes Boise) supports Ahlquist currently; while Labrador gets only 12 percent and Little gets 22 percent support.” (Idaho Politics Weekly)
