Dusty Johnson Leads In House Race

A poll recently commissioned by the Dusty Johnson campaign showed that the former Governor’s Chief of Staff was leading the race for South Dakota’s lone House of Representatives seat by 21 percentage points. According to the Rapid City Journal, 54 percent of respondents supported Johnson.

Johnson is the Republican candidate for the House, running against Democrat Tim Bjorkman, who earned 33 percent of support in Johnson’s poll, Libertarian George Hendrickson, and independent Ron Wieczorek in the general election on November 6th. Ten percent of those polled remained undecided. Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican polling firm, conducted the poll with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.
