Johnson Leads In U.S. House Race


Voters got a chance to hear from two of the candidates running for the U.S. House during our live debate last week.

Thursday night, we get a look at how voters feel about each candidate in our KELOLAND Media Group/Argus Leader scientific poll and who they plan on voting for.

Former PUC Commissioner Dusty Johnson is recognized by voters more favorably than his opponent, former Judge Tim Bjorkman.

According to our KELOLAND Media Group/Argus Leader poll, 44 percent recognize Johnson as favorable, 15 percent unfavorable while 35 percent are neutral.

His opponent is recognized favorably by 28 percent of South Dakota voters, 10 percent unfavorably while 39 percent are neutral on Bjorkman. 

We also asked if the election were held today, who would you vote for? Here are the numbers.  

They show Johnson with 54 percent of the vote and  Bjorkman with 31 percent. The other two candidates get a combined 3 percent.  12 percent are still undecided. 

Thursday night on KEOLAND News at 6, we’ll hear from both candidates about our polling numbers. Then at 10 we’ll see where their support is coming from as we break down the numbers by region and gender.
