Press release from the Tom Hayhurst for Congress, 3rd Indiana Congressional District campaign:
Hayhurst Ahead in New Poll
HAYHURST LEADS STUTZMAN 40%-36%
Tom Hayhurst’s Congressional Campaign released a new general election poll that shows Hayhurst leading Marlin Stutzman 40%-36% with Libertarian, Scott Wise, receiving 3%.
“Tom Hayhurst clearly has the momentum,” said Hayhurst Campaign Manager, Jason Kingsbury. The local poll that came out earlier this week was flawed and we have the data to prove it. This poll signals that Hoosiers know Tom Hayhurst is the best candidate for Northeast Indiana and Marlin Stutzman will take us back to the failed policies and promises of Congressman Souder. In the final days of this campaign, Dr. Hayhurst will continue to work tirelessly to close the remaining gap and win this race for the folks of Northeast Indiana.”
The poll had a 400 person sample, and was taken by Riggs Research on October 27th and 28th. It has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.
“We are very encouraged by the results of this poll, which shows what we’ve been saying all along; this race is neck and neck and will be decided on Election Day. This poll is just another reflection of the level of support I have received from Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. It’s clear that we have the momentum and that voters don’t want another clone of Mark Souder,” said Hayhurst.
