“Jeff Sessions’ unfavorability has continued to increase among GOP Primary voters over the course of the primary season,” said Brent Buchanan, Cygnal’s CEO & Founder. “Now that Trump has gotten involved, it’s unlikely the former attorney general will be able to overcome the gap in how voters see Tuberville’s as more strongly favorable. Trump may not be able to pull a candidate across the finish line, but he sure can keep a candidate from getting there first.”
The survey asked voters if they believed that the President was opposed to Sessions in the Senate race. 45% of GOP primary voters agreed that he was; only 16% disagreed. Of the 45% that agreed, 67% say they plan to vote for Tuberville.
