According to the poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group, 22.7 percent of likely GOP primary voters would vote for Oz if the election were held today. In second place, 19.7 percent of Pennsylvania Republicans would vote for McCormick.
The next best candidate is Kathy Barnette, who earned 18.4 percent of respondents. However, 17 percent of the likely GOP primary voters in the state remain undecided.
The poll comes just a week after former President Donald Trump endorsed Oz. “I believe Mehmet Oz is the person most likely to be able to win the general election against a radical left-wing Democrat who wants to cause unimaginable damage to our country,” Trump said.
Surprisingly, support for Oz has declined since the last Trafalgar Group poll was conducted two months ago. Oz had 27.4 percent support in February, compared to McCormick’s 15.9 percent.
The poll found that Pennsylvania’s GOP primary for governor also statistically falls between candidates Doug Mastriano and former Rep. Lou Barletta. Mastriano has 21.9 percent support compared to Barletta’s 18.8 percent.
The Trafalgar Group conducted the most recent poll on April 11-13, polling 1,074 likely GOP primary voters for 2022. The poll’s margin of error is ±2.9 percent.
The Pennsylvania primary will be held on April 17 next month.
