POLL: Independent Betsy Johnson Sitting at 19% in Oregon’s Gubernatorial Race

A new poll out in the Oregon governor’s race shows former state house GOP leader Christine Drazan and former House Speaker Tina Kotek, a Democrat, are locked in a near tie for first place.

Approximately 30% of likely Oregon voters chose Drazan, while Kotek draw the support of 28% of respondents. The wild card in the race is former state senator Betsy Johnson, running a well-funded independent campaign with the backing of Nike co-founder Phil Knight. Johnson scored more than 19% in the poll, putting her comfortable within striking distance of the major party front-runners.

More from The Oregonian:

Given the poll’s margin of error, 4.3%, that puts Drazan and Kotek in a statistical tie for first place and also puts Johnson in a statistical tie with Kotek for second place – an indication of just how competitive the three-way race for governor could be in November. Nearly 24% of likely voters remain undecided, the poll found.
