ETSU poll
The latest Tennessee Poll by ETSU finds that nearly 9 out of 10 Tennesseans say this year’s election is either very important or somewhat important. This sentiment holds true regardless of party affiliation, gender, or age. When asked about the current direction of the state, a majority of Tennesseans 52% feel that Tennessee is going in the right direction, and only 20% feel it is on the wrong track. However, there are some notable differences by party affiliation, age, and gender. Respondents who identify as Republican or who lean Republican (73%) are more likely to say the state is heading in the right direction than are those who are Independent or Democrat, says Dr. Kelly N. Foster, Associate Professor of Sociology, and director of the poll. Older respondents and men are more likely to feel things are going in the right direction than are respondents who are younger or female. When asked about how likely they were to vote in this year’s elections, nearly 80% residents say they are either very likely or likely to vote in the election on Tuesday. Among likely voters, 47% indicate that they will vote for Republican Gubernatorial candidate Bill Lee and 36% say they will vote for Democratic candidate Karl Dean, with 9% undecided. Support for Tennessee Gubernatorial Candidates in one of the most tightly contested Senate races in the country, the Tennessee Poll finds that 44% of likely voters in Tennessee favor Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and 44% favor Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen with stronger levels of support within respective parties. Men are more likely to indicate support for Blackburn, and women are more likely to report they support Bredesen. The poll was conducted between October 22 to 29.
