UNDATED -- A brand new poll Wednesday confirmed Republican Congresswoman Mary Fallin remains the top pick in the race for Oklahoma governor.

In a telephone survey of likely Oklahoma voters, Rasmussen put Fallin against the two Democrats in the field.

In a race against Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins, Fallin won with 55% of the vote. Askins received 32%. Fallin's strongest Democratic opponent proved to be Attorney General Drew Edmondson. In that hypothetical race, Fallin received 48% of the vote, compared to Edmondson's 39%.

But Edmondson has a double-digit advantage in a hypothetical race against Republican State Senator Randy Brogdon. The Rasmussen poll said Brogdon could defeat Jari Askins.

In fact, Askins trails when paired with any Republican in the field - including little-known candidates Robert Hubbard and Roger Jackson.

Rasmussen's poll has a 5% margin of error.

Voters will make their decision in a July 27th primary.
