CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A poll says Wyoming Republicans Rita Meyer and Matt Mead are their party's leading gubernatorial candidates ahead of the August 17th Primary Election. Results of the poll show that 27 percent of 400 voters surveyed said they would vote for Meyer, who is State Auditor, while 24 percent said they would vote for Mead, a former U.S. Attorney for Wyoming. The difference between them is within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.
House Speaker Colin Simpson polled 17 percent. Former state Department of Agriculture Director Ron Micheli was the choice of 12 percent. The poll was conducted July 26-28 by Washington, D.C. based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.
