Poll: Ivey Leads in GOP Race

Gov. Kay Ivey has a commanding lead in the Republican primary, a new poll finds.   The survey by Alabama Daily News and Leverage Public Strategies gives Ivey 47 percent of the vote.    Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle was a distant second with 11 percent, followed by Birmingham evangelist Scott Dawson at 9 percent, and state Sen. Bill Hightower (R-Mobile) at 4 percent. 30 percent of voters were undecided.    Ivey would need just a small percentage of the undecided vote to win the GOP nomination outright, and avoid a runoff.    The poll sampled more than 600 likely voters from April 23-30, and had a margin of error of 3.9 percent.   The primary is June 5.
