Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville won the most votes in the Alabama Republican primary for US Senate last Tuesday night.
In a March 31st runoff election, Tuberville will face off against former Senator and turncoat Jeff Sessions, who gave America the Mueller investigation.
Democrat Rep. Bradley Byrne was defeated and placed third. He did not qualify for the runoff.
Judge Roy Moore placed far back, only receiving 7% of the vote.
According to the final vote totals — Tuberville won the most votes Tuesday despite trailing in the polls ahead of the election.
Tommy Tuberville — 239,173 33.4%
Jeff Sessions — 226,675 31.6%
Tuberville trailed Jeff Sessions by 5 points in one of the last polls before the Super Tuesday election.
The runoff election between Tommy Tuberville and Jeff Sessions will be held on March 31st.
Tommy Tuberville leads by 12 points over Jeff Sessions in the latest Cygnal poll in Alabama.
A week after Super Tuesday, former Auburn Tigers football coach Tommy Tuberville has a commanding lead in the Alabama primary runoff for U.S. Senate against former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a new poll released today by Cygnal.
The Cygnal survey, conducted March 6 – 8, with 645 likely GOP primary election voters, shows Sessions (40%) trailing Tuberville (52%) by 12 points. The runoff election will take place on March 31.
“Starting at a 12-point deficit is going to be a big hurdle for Sessions to get over, especially if he continues to draw the ire – and tweets – of the President,” said Chris Kratzer, Cygnal’s VP of Research and Analysis.
It will be very difficult for Jeff Sessions to win as President Trump continues to attack his former AWOL Attorney General.
Tommy Tuberville’s campaign also released an internal poll that shows him defeating Jeff Sessions by 11 points.
The poll shows Tuberville at 49% and Jeff Sessions at 38%. 12% are still undecided.
President Trump slammed Jeff Sessions after the election last week.
Doug Jones must be defeated.
