Political science professor Dr. Jay Barth says establishment Republican candidates — for the most part — are faring well in the latest Talk Business-Hendrix College Poll.

Appearing on this week’s Talk Business & Politics TV program, which airs at 9 am on Sundays, Barth said that the frontrunners in the latest polling all have financial, grassroots or deep-rooted political support. Tea Party insurgents are not winning these primaries, he said.

“The more establishment-oriented candidates tend to be doing pretty well,” Barth said. “This is not a Tea Party uprising year.”

Barth warns that with a lot of undecideds and a historically low turnout in GOP primaries, the results from our polling could change significantly by Election Day.
