Poll puts Fallin in lead for governor

Fifth District Congresswoman Mary Fallin has a clear lead in the 2010 Oklahoma governor's race, a new Oklahoma Poll has found.

Fallin, an Oklahoma City Republican, was the overwhelming choice of GOP voters surveyed and was the pick of the majority of respondents in head-to-head matchups against Democrats Drew Edmondson and Jari Askins.
