Mead Enjoys Commanding Lead in Poll

By Associated Press – 17 Oct ’14

A new poll shows incumbent Republican Matt Mead with a commanding 25-point lead over Democrat Pete Gosar in the Wyoming governor’s race.

Mead was favored by 53 percent of those surveyed last week compared to 28 percent for Gosar in the poll commissioned by the Casper Star-Tribune. Thirteen percent were undecided.

The poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research, of Jacksonville, Florida. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 4 percent.

Gosar says the only poll he’s worried about is the one on election day.

Mead says he believes that a handful of initiatives he has addressed, such as energy and water strategies, have struck a chord with Wyoming voters.
