Second District GOP nominee Tim Griffin revealed details of his campaign strategy at today’s Little Rock Political Animals Club meeting.
Griffin disclosed results of an internal poll that show him with a 50-34% lead over his Democratic rival, Joyce Elliott, who was in attendance at today’s event.
According to the Griffin campaign:
The live interview poll was conducted by Alexandria, Va.-based OnMessage, Inc. June 13-14 using a sample of 400 likely voters with a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.
The party breakdown of the survey is as follows: 43% Democrat, 23% Independent and 33% Republican. Pulaski County represented 53% of the polling sample. Of Pulaski County respondents, 60% resided in Little Rock.
Griffin is viewed favorably by 34% of respondents, while only 12% have an unfavorable view. Elliott is known by 69% of voters and has a favorable/unfavorable ratio of 35% to 34%. Griffin leads among Independents, 63% – 14%.
To reach potential swing voters, Griffin announced a substantial endorsement at the club’s meeting today.
D.C. Morrison, the conservative Democrat who earned 13% of the statewide vote in the U.S. Senate Democratic primary, is backing Griffin’s candidacy and will be forming a "Democrats for Griffin" organization for this fall. He could also be starting a "Democrats for Boozman" group, too. Morrison tells John Lyon with the Arkansas News Bureau that he has not endorsed Lincoln in the U.S. Senate race, but would support Boozman with an endorsement if he asks.
Griffin will be our guest on Talk Business this week to discuss his campaign. Tune in Sunday nights at 10pm on Fox 16; Mondays at 11:30 on KUAF in Fayetteville; or Mondays at 6pm on KUAR in Little Rock.
