UtahPolicy.com was told by someone with knowledge of Winder’s internal polling numbers that they show Winder ahead of Mark Crockett by a 58-42% margin.
That seems like good news for Winder, but Randy O’Hara, Crockett’s campaign manager is taking the numbers with a grain of salt.
“I’ve heard those numbers too. I’ve seen other polling that shows the race much closer,” he says.
O’Hara says his campaign hasn’t done any polling ahead of Tuesday’s primary, but they’re not too worried as they think the contest will come down to turnout.
“At this point, our whole effort is targeted at getting our voters to the polls. Our radio ad buy is larger this week trying to drive attention to the race, and we are making hundreds of phone calls.”
Winder is happy with the polling numbers, obviously, but says he’s not resting on them.
“I am so pleased with the way our team has conducted this campaign. We have been positive, and we are feeling great momentum as we head towards Primary Election Day,” he said in a statement to UtahPolicy.
