Campaign commissioned poll shows big advantage for Comer

A poll commissioned by the James Comer for Congress campaign, which sampled the entire First District, returned some impressive figures for the candidate from Tompkinsville, KY:
James Comer 46%. Michael Pape, 9%; and Jason Batts 5%, with the rest undecided or refused to participate.
The poll was taken April 10-12, 2016, and, according to the pollster, Jan R van Lohuizen, the poll has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.

Comer also received overwhelming recognition numbers and favorability ratings.

The primary election is 6am-6pmCT, local time, on Tuesday, May 17, 2016. Comer made a major campaign stop last week and received major media coverage in the Adair Progress and was interviewed on WAIN radio. According to Tiffany Kessler, Columbia, KY, Comer plans other visits to Adair County, KY, including a commitment to be at the Breeding Area Fire Department's pre-primary Fish Fry.

Poll numbers for the other two candidates, Michael Pape and Jason Batts, have not been received.
