MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- A Middle Tennessee State University poll of likely Tennessee voters shows Republican Mitt Romney far ahead of President Barack Obama, a lead driven by strong support among white evangelical voters.
The poll released Saturday showed 59 percent of likely voters favoring Romney, 34 percent backing Obama, 6 percent undecided and 1 percent supporting another candidate.
The telephone poll was conducted Oct. 16-21 among registered voters who had voted early or said they were very likely to vote in the Nov. 6 election. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 points at the 95 percent level of confidence.
The poll found that white evangelicals, about 60 percent of Tennessee's electorate, back Romney over Obama 74 percent to 21 percent, with 5 percent undecided.
