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.
