Several Idaho Republican Primary Candidates React to Zoldak Research Poll

By • January 5, 2022

Idaho Dispatch released a poll yesterday conducted by Zoldak Research which covered the 2022 Republican Primary races for Governor and Lt. Governor.

You can review the results of the polling by going to IdahoDispatch.com/2022poll. The primary elections in Idaho do not take place until May 17.

Idaho Dispatch reached out to the candidates, and Governor Brad Little, who has not announced his re-election bid, to get their reactions to the polling data.

Who are the candidates listed in the polling for the Governor’s race? Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin, Ammon Bundy, Ed Humphreys, Steve Bradshaw, and Cody Usabel. The candidates listed in the Lt. Governor’s race poll are House Speaker Scott Bedke (R-Oakley) and Rep. Priscilla Giddings (R-White Bird).

Humphreys sent Idaho Dispatch the following message,

In half a year me and my team have accomplished something that’s taken the professional politicians decades. That same energy and drive is exactly what we need down at the Statehouse. Polls don’t measure success, only results.

Usabel told Idaho Dispatch,

Cody Usabel will be releasing more content soon on Facebook and YouTube leading up to the primary. https://m.facebook.com/usabelforgovernor/

You can find me on Youtube https://youtube.com/channel/UCd9zlfCibNEhcZVZ8Eu-R0A

You can also email him anytime with questions, comments, or to set up a meeting. usabelmiga@gmail.com

Bundy and McGeachin told Idaho Dispatch they did not have a comment at this time. Little and Bradshaw have not replied to Idaho Dispatch’s request for comment at this time.

Giddings responded to the polling results by telling Idaho Dispatch,

I’m very encouraged by the large number of undecided voters in the race for Lt Governor. Bedke’s ongoing relationship with corruption and cronyism is clearly hurting his poll numbers. Our campaign has the early lead among the grassroots, and we will continue working hard to earn the confidence of the voters.

What do you think of the poll results?

  1. To be remembered, the conservative voter tends to either not be reached or answer polls at all.

    Giddings will win handily.
    McGeachin and Bundy are much further ahead than the poll shows.

  2. COWARD JELLYFISH LITTLE AND HIS CORRUPT CRONIE BEDKE NEED TO BE OUT OF IDAHO!!! THE LOOKOUT FOR THEIR BEST INTERESTS NOT IDAHOANS!! THEY SERVE THEIR BIG BUSINESS CAMPAIGN DONORS NOT IDAHOANS!! LITTLE REFUSES TO STOP FORCED VACCINATION MANDATES AS A JOB REQUIREMENT AND REFUSES TO PROTECT IDAHOANS FIRED FOR NOT GETTING VACCINATIONS BY NOT AUTHORIZING UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS!!! THEY HAVE TO GO!!!

    1. Amen! In total agreement! All Candidates must be vetted 100% and exposed! I wrote to the AG to audit the 2020 election all I got were crickets! A nothing burger! Little should be leading with an Audit for Idaho! We need the truth to come out on any corruption and those bribed for the CCP!

  3. I think the poll results are frightening. The last thing the state needs is a Little/Bedke administration. Hopefully folks come to their senses before May.

  4. Little and Bedke are bad news for Idahoans. Look at how they ended 2021 Season, all they did was target true conservatives in the house. I think the undecided voter will take care of this in the primaries.

  5. I think the poll is right on.
    The Bundy, McGeachin, Giddings and others from the extreme right are just that…too extreme for normal republicans in Idaho. Look at their high “unfavorable” scores. I see them in deep holes and continue to dig themselves deeper!
    From a native Idaho Republican

    1. Extreme? That’s a laugh and from “a native Idaho Republican”. All I can say is if Doug G defines Idaho Republicans, then I can understand why this state is in the mess that it’s in!

      Bundy and Giddings all the way.

        1. I’m inclined to agree with you. Things have come out about them that could have a negative impact on our state. Bradshaw is starting to look more appealing.

      1. Yes! Each person on their own merritt’s only. We need lots of meet and greets as well as Everyone being included in debates. Making sure we have Integrity in our voting and We The People of Idaho will decide…not outside $$, and corps.

    2. Well, that statement makes you the standard bearer for the little and his pig bedke’s campaign. Also congrats on being the “average” republican in this state.

  6. What we need is honest, true conservative leadership! I sure hope voters do their homework and not just vote name recognition.
    I have not made up my mind yet on who I will vote for…but I sure as hell will not vote for Little and Bedke….they NEED to go.
    On another note..so does the mayor of Bosie!

  7. We really need to get out and vote in the primary this May! We DO NOT want the democrats to be sneaky and vote for Idahos conservative leaders! Remember they like to crossover and move the candidate choice to Rhino. Is that how Little and maybe Mayor McClean of Boise got in? Don’t let them stack the deck!

  8. It’s one of many polls and if accurate, it’s on us to be vocal and educate.
    Regarding the Lt. Gov race, Priscilla Giddings is the one.
    Do your homework regarding the ethics committee Priscilla and you’ll see how absolutely disgusting her opponent can be. If you think she did wrong, ask yourself why there were no charges against her?
    Regarding governor, the people of Idaho need to decide if Idaho wants to be a state that holds Liberty high or just drag it through the mud.
    Go meet them, talk to them, I assure you, one of them will pleasantly surprise you with his knowledge and strength to stand against oppression, the only man I know personally that’s willing to die for Liberty and your rights.

  9. I believe the poll is accurate. Little and Bedke will win big time. How to rate a politician? Look at what they actually do. Only a snake in the
    grass would do what Giddings did, and to another woman to boot. As for Ammon Bundy: nice guy, pleasant, family man. But read his plan for
    taxes on his website. He wants to eliminate all state income taxes and
    property taxes. Sounds good? Not so fast, friend. His plan to make up
    for that tax loss is to raise it all by a consumption tax, which he admits is sales tax on all goods bought. 20-25% sales tax. Ask him about it.

    1. Good thinking Charlie. That is just one of Bundy’s “plans” that don’t pass the smell test. His whole campaign is built on sand
