The ABCWV released poll surveyed 401 registered voters in the area. Additional results from the poll found respondents favored the repeal of the prevailing wage (64% - 34%) and, 54% respondents agreed with the passage of Right to Work by the West Virginia Legislature. Results also showed that President Donald Trump has a narrow margin of approval (49% - 48%).
Speaking to the results of the poll, Delegate Moore stated: “We certainly like to see numbers like these in my district and I think it is a testament to the fact that I fight for Jefferson County and have a proven track record of delivering for the district – a great example of that was saving the MARC train service earlier this year. That said, we take nothing for granted and will continue to campaign hard and talk to constituents right up to the election.”
In addition to these strong poll results, recent fundraising reports filed in June by Moore and Doyle show Delegate Moore with a nearly eight to one fundraising advantage over his opponent, with Doyle only raising $6,950 and Moore raising $53,903. Additionally, Delegate Moore holds a nearly $42,000 cash-on-hand advantage.
