Republican pollsters Harper Polling has released a new poll showing that Jason Conger would be the stronger candidate in a one on one race against Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley.
Harper is a relatively new polling outfit, and somewhat controversial for it’s embrace of automated polling.
The poll shows that in a Conger / Merkley race, Merkley gets 47%, Conger 40% with 12 % undecided.
In a Wehby / Merkley race, Merkley claims 46% of the vote, Wehby 34% and 20% remain undecided.
Moving to the cross tabs, independents and others favor Conger 43% to 36% with 21% undecided. But Wehby loses to Merkley among independents and others by 32% to 34%. However 34% would be undecided in a Wehby/Merkley contest.
The polling was done April 1 – 2, 2014.
