Byrne & Young Locked in Close Races
On October 30, 2013, cygnal, a full-service campaign and communications firm, released a Flash Poll for the Alabama Congressional District 1 Republican Primary special election runoff to be held on November 5, 2013. The survey has a statistical margin of error of 3.03%.
According to the survey, Bradley Byrne stands at 40.2% compared to Dean Young’s 43.2%. The race is much closer than most observers would believe, but all recent public polling points to a double-digit undecided universe. At this point, the race could go either way.
Byrne has hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend along with a nearly equal amount of outside money being spent on his behalf. It is yet to be seen if this level of expenditures will sway the race his way in the end. History tells us that “he who spends the most” wins the most.
