The two front-runners seem to be buoyed by the stark racial disparities between the parties’ voters. The survey reports that over half (53 percent) of the state’s likely Democratic primary voters are black, while 46 percent are white. Meanwhile, 91 percent of Republican voters are white, and just three percent are black.

There is also a deep disparity between the two sides’ satisfaction with their own parties. Sixty-eight percent of GOP voters disapprove of Republicans in Congress, while just 13 percent say they approve.

The trend is reversed on the Democratic side, with 54 percent say they approve of Democrats in Congress, and 29 percent say they disapprove.

The field poll was conducted on March 1, and surveyed 609 Republican voters and 865 Democratic voters. It has a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points for Republicans and 3.3 percentage points for Democrats.
