Sandman gets extra oats tonight

Gov. Bob Riley is the early favorite in next year's Alabama gubernatorial race thanks to his 19-point lead over Republican challenger Roy Moore and double-digit leads over both major Democratic contenders, Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley and former Gov. Don Siegelman, according to recent Mobile Register polling.

As for Moore, he trails Baxley by 7 points in a hypothetical showdown but is tied with Siegelman. Among other unsurprising poll findings: More Democrats would prefer Riley over Moore, Siegelman has stronger black support than Baxley, and Baxley faces no gender gap among voters.

Election year isn't even here yet, of course, but it's always good to see that Moore isn't ahead of anyone.
