Horn Campaign Releases Poll Showing Eight-Point Lead in OK-5

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – On Friday, Congresswoman Kendra Horn’s campaign released internal polling conducted by Normington, Petts, and Associates showing Horn with 52% and State Senator Stephanie Bice with 44% in the race for Oklahoma’s Fifth District. The poll showed voters view Congresswoman Horn with an 11-point net positive favorability rating, and Stephanie Bice with a net negative 3-point favorability rating. Additionally, Horn’s 55 percent job approval rating, clearly shows strength across party lines in a district that President Trump won by double digits in 2016. These data confirm another poll conducted by GQR in late August which showed Horn with 51% of the vote. 

A summary of the poll is available here.

“There is a clear contrast in this race,” said Campaign Manager Ward Curtin. “While Congresswoman Horn has a record of getting things done for Oklahoma, shaking up the way things work in Washington, and fighting for our public schools, State Senator Bice loyally supported Mary Fallin’s budgets that gutted our public education system.” 

“A majority of voters in this district approve of the job Congresswoman Horn is doing in Washington because they know she will work with anyone to get things done for Oklahoma. She has been recognized as one of the most accessible members of Congress, and 23 of her bills have been signed into law by the President. In a district that President Trump carried by double digits in 2016, Congresswoman Horn is outperforming the top of the ticket. This poll shows voters recognize her as an independent voice who represents the best interests of all Oklahomans, regardless of party.”

Congresswoman Horn received an A rating from the NEA and is endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, two organizations that recognize her bipartisan work as an example of needed leadership in Washington.

Horn’s internal polling was conducted from 8/31 – 9/3 through live interviewer calls to landlines and cell phones, with a sample size of 400 registered voters in the 5th Congressional District of Oklahoma who are likely to vote in the general election in November 2020.
