OKLAHOMA CITY -

Jim Inhofe's quest for a fifth full term in the United States Senate appears to be going well, according to a poll released by News On 6 and News 9 Wednesday night.

That poll shows Sen. Inhofe with a 57.3% to 32.8% lead over challenger Abby Broyles, if the general election were to be held today.

Robert Murphy, the Libertarian candidate for Senate, got 2.3% in the poll, while Independent Joan Farr received 1.2% support.

Undecideds weren't insignificant in this poll, amassing 6.4% of those asked.

The polling lead for Inhofe is comparable with previous election results, including winning with 56.68, 57.3 and 56.7 percent of the vote in the 2008, 2002 and 1996 elections over Andrew Rice, former Gov. David Walters and Jim Boren. In 2014, Inhofe defeated Democratic challenge Matt Silverstein by a 68.01% to 28.55% margin.

Inhofe won election to the U.S. Senate in 1994 by special election over former Rep. Dave McCurdy.
