Smith poll: 50% undecided on Ward, Labrador

Eagle, Idaho pollster Greg Smith says he's done a poll in the 1st Congressional District GOP primary race that finds 50 percent of voters undecided, just weeks before the May 25 primary election. Smith said his poll of 400 voters in the 1st CD showed 34 percent support Vaughn Ward in the GOP primary, 16 percent favor Raul Labrador, and 50 percent were "undecided/don't know/refused/other." Smith said the same poll showed, for the general election, incumbent Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick as the favored candidate for 50 percent of respondents, with just 20 percent choosing "the Republican candidate" instead.

Smith said his poll was taken the week of May 3, and included 400 1st CD residents age 18 or older who "say they are either very or somewhat likely to vote in the May 2010 primary election;" his firm, Greg Smith & Associates, commissioned and funded the poll itself.
