By • May 5, 2022

A new poll out by the Remington Research Group (not commissioned by Idaho Dispatch) has Raul Labrador leading the Attorney General’s race by nine points.

1,033 “likely 2022 Republican Primary voters” took part in the survey which was conducted from May 2 to May 3. There is a margin of error of +/- 3%.

There are three candidates in the race for AG: Lawrence Wasden (Incumbent), Raul Labrador, and Art Macomber. The poll for this race was conducted from May 2 to May 4.

Labrador leads the race with 43% of the vote, according to the poll. Wasden comes in at 34% and Macomber at 6%.

The poll also asked participants what their opinion of each candidate was. Here are the results for each candidate:

Labrador:

Favorable: 49%
Unfavorable: 27%
No Opinion: 24%

Wasden:

Favorable: 33%
Unfavorable: 28%
No Opinion: 39%

Macomber:

Favorable: 7%
Unfavorable: 18%
No Opinion: 75%

The poll also asked participants what their opinion of President Donald Trump was. The results of that question were 73% favorable, 20% unfavorable, and 7% had no opinion.

Idaho’s primary election will take place on May 17, although early voting is currently underway.

  1. How is Labrador ahead but the same people will vote Little and Bedke? Something isn’t adding up. You like the whole team except the AG? No.

    1. A lot has to do with name recognition. RINO / Establishment, moderate, and leftist “Republicans” aren’t the only people who vote for Little, Wasdin, Bedke, and the like in Republican Primaries. There are a lot of uninformed or misinformed conservatives who have not been educated in the fact that not every incumbent Republican is a Conservative, and that to the contrary, most are not. Labrador, contrary to Little, Wasdin and Bedke, is a Conservative Republican with name recognition – the establishment’s worst nightmare. He has served on the Federal level with a stellar Conservative record as a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus. He is able to capture the voting base of both uninformed / misinformed Conservative Republicans who vote for any Republican incumbent based strictly on name recognition, and informed Republicans who know his conservative track record. Oftentimes it is not as simple as what a purely surface observation would otherwise lead one to believe. We must realize that based on how conservative Idaho constituents are, the only reason liberal and moderate Republicans get elected is because people are led to believe they are conservatives. It has nothing to do with any erroneous notion that Idaho voters are as liberal or moderate as the RINO Republicans they all too often vote for.
