MetroNews Poll Shows Justice In Front


A new MetroNews West Virginia gubernatorial poll is out and it shows Jim Justice leading bill Cole.

Democratic Candidate Jim Justice leads Republican Candidate Bill Cole by an 11-point margin in the race for Governor of the state. The MetroNews West Virginia poll of 408 likely voters was conducted from October 12th through the 17th after the second gubernatorial debate.

Justice leads 44 to 33 percent. The Mountain Party candidate Charlotte Pritt would receive 8 percent of the vote if the election were held today, while Libertarian David Moran would receive 5 percent. Nine percent of people polled are undecided on which candidate they’ll vote for on November 8th.

The poll was conducted by Repass Research and Strategic Consulting through interviews conducted on landline phones, cell phones and op-in internet panels.
