Director of Monmouth Poll Dismantles Holcomb Camp’s Spin on Results

INDIANAPOLISOn Friday, Eric Holcomb and his campaign contested a recent Monmouth Poll – calling it “laughably inconsistent.” This comes after the Holcomb Campaign touted the exact poll in August.

Those facts aside, Patrick Murray – Monmouth University Polling Institute’s director – completely dismantled the Holcomb Campaign’s claims. Murray reiterated Friday’s poll used the same exact methodologies as the August poll and described the new results as having “movement in the race.”

Reporter: “Holcomb’s campaign put out a quick statement following the results of this poll, saying that this poll is an outlier and inconsistent. I take it you don’t agree with that.”

Murray: “Yeah, and I think they said it was ‘laughably inconsistent.’ And I doubt very much that they’re laughing over there because one of the polls that it’s inconsistent with is our own poll, the Monmouth Poll back in August which had actually a one point advantage for Holcomb back then. Now, it’s a twelve point advantage for Gregg using the same exact methodology. Looking at our demographics which are exactly the same from poll to poll – there’s been movement in this race. There’s been a lot of movement in this race.”
