The second consecutive poll shows former Business Council of Alabama president and CEO Katie Britt leading the way in the race for the Republican Party nod in Alabama's U.S. Senate race.

The survey was conducted by the Moore Information Group, a polling firm used by Republicans nationwide, including U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn).

It was conducted May 2 through May 5 and found Britt with 27%, ahead of both U.S. Army veteran Mike Durant and U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), tied at 20%.

However, the survey also showed nearly one-third of the field supported another candidate or were undecided.

  • Britt 27%

  • Brooks 20%

  • Durant 20%

  • Other/Decided 31%

The survey was of 400 likely Republican voters with a margin of error of +/- 5%.

Last week, a poll commissioned by the Alabama Forestry Association's Alabama Forestry PAC also found Britt in the lead at 38.6%, with Durant at 27.4% and Brooks at 22%, with 12% of respondents undecided.

The polls are somewhat of a deviation from what three separate surveys conducted in March showed, which had Durant leading the pack.

Republican voters will have an opportunity to select their preference for the November ballot in the May 24 primary. If none of the candidates reach more than 50% of the vote total, the top two will face off in a June 22 runoff.
