Haslam Leads for Tennessee Governor

A new WSMV Poll in Tennessee shows Bill Haslam (R) leading for the Republican gubernatorial nomination with 32%, followed by Zach Wamp (R) at 21% and Ronald Ramsey (R) at 11%.

The GOP primary is on August 5.

In general election match ups, all three possible Republican candidates beat Mike McWherter (D) by wide margins. Haslam leads 60% to 34%, Ramsey leads 51% to 41%, and Wamp leads 59% to 35%.

However, "those numbers could reflect the fact that the Republican candidates have so far campaigned far more visibly than the Democrat, who is unopposed in the primary."
