News9/Newson6: Hofmeister, Cox In Dead Heat For State Superintendent


It's down to the wire in Campaign 2014 and our new, exclusive News On 6 poll shows the race for state school superintendent is neck and neck.

Democrat John Cox is trailing Republican Joy Hofmeister by two percentage points, but that's within our poll's margin of error of 3,2 percent.

The race is a dead heat and the candidates are at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs, working to sway last-minute undecided voters.

Hofmeister and Cox only have five days to convince undecided voters who don't appear to be loyal to their party in the superintendent's race.

"This race is a lot of the reason why straight party voting is not that much of an issue this year as it was four years ago," said News On 6 pollster, Bill Shapard.

In our exclusive News On 6 Poll, 14 percent of Fallin supporters plan to vote for Cox, but 14 percent of Dorman supporters said they will vote for Hofmeister.
