From Rasmussen

Republican Congresswoman Mary Fallin has jumped to a 26-point lead over Democrat Jari Askins in Okahoma’s gubernatorial race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Fallin picking up 60% support, while Askins, the state’s current lieutenant governor, earns 34% of the vote. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
This race remains Solid GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
Last month, Fallin led Askins 52% to 37%. Prior to the latest survey, Fallin’s support remained in the 51% to 57% range in surveys conducted since February. Askins received between 32% and 37% support during the same period. 
The winner of this race will be the state's first woman governor.
Fallin earns the vote from 89% of Oklahoma Republicans, while Askins is backed by just 64% of Democrats. Fallin holds a 25-point lead over Askins among voters not affiliated with either major political party.
