Attorney General's Race Wide Open, Poll Says,

A majority of likely Republican primary voters are undecided in the race for Alabama attorney general, a new poll indicated.  59 percent of respondents said they had not made up their minds.  Of those who had decided, appointed incumbent Steve Marshall had 14 percent of the vote, former Attorney General Troy King had 13 percent, while former U.S. Attorney Alice Martin took 10 percent.  Marshall, King, and Martin were in a virtual dead heat, given the poll's margin of error.    Birmingham attorney Chess Bedsole was the choice of 4 percent of respondents.  The results indicate a runoff is likely, since no candidate is close to the 50 percent plus one vote required to clinch the nomination.   The poll was conducted by Alabama Daily News and Leverage Public Strategies between April 23-30, and sampled 600 likely Republican voters using a combination of live phone calls and touch selection surveys.   The margin of error was plus or minus 3.94 percentage points.
