A News On 6/News 9 poll has the latest numbers in the race for Oklahoma's next Attorney General.

With a margin of error at +3.93 percent, 9 percent of likely voters surveyed last week say they plan to vote for incumbent Attorney General Mike Hunter.  Twenty-six-percent support Tulsa-area attorney Gentner Drummond.

"I think Attorney General Mike Hunter has pretty much been caught flat-footed, he's raised and spent upwards of $300,000 on anything but to promote his name ID, or on television ads or things of that nature," said Bill Shapard with

The poll also showed 61-percent of those surveyed say they're undecided on this race.

Democrat Mark Myles is unopposed for attorney general and will advance to face the GOP winner in the general election in November., Oklahoma’s public opinion pollster, conducted the poll of Oklahoma likely voters, which was commissioned by News 9 and News On 6.

The scientific study was conducted May 15-23, 2018 with 622 likely Oklahoma voters selected at random statewide from a 5-frame of SoonerPoll's own online panel, Research Now's voter panel, cell phones, and landline telephones. For cell phone and landline telephones, voters are selected at random from SoonerPoll's voter database and matched with cell and landline phone numbers. Cell phone participants are collected using live interviewers and landline participants are collected using both live interviewer and IVR (Interactive Voice Response) technology. The sample was weighted by age, gender, political party and congressional district in order to reflect the Oklahoma likely voter population for a general election.

The sample reflects the traditional demographical profile of the Oklahoma likely voter with roughly half of the respondents identifying as conservative. The study has a Margin of Error (MoE) of ± 3.93 percent.
