Oklahoma Governor: Henry by 21

Henry (D) 54%; Istook (R) 33%

Wednesday, September 06, 2006

Incumbent Brad Henry is firmly in control of his bid for a second term as Oklahoma’s governor. The latest Rasmussen Reports election poll shows Henry leading his Republican challenger, U.S. Rep. Ernest Istook, 54% to 33%. That’s a 10-point jump in Henry’s lead since our last poll in May.

Henry is faring much better with his party base as evidenced by the 83% of Democrats who say they’ll support him versus 58% of Republicans for Istook. He also has stronger crossover pull, drawing support from 27% of GOP voters.
