WSJ/Zogby say the race is SP 52.1 and MT 39.3.
What’s interesting is that A.) 52 and 39 only add up to 91, meaning that there is a possibility that 9% of the voters are undecided for the general election.
B.) According to the lastest SurveyUSA poll, Sonny Perdue has a 58% job approval rating, but only 52% of Georgians would vote to re-elect him. That seems a little odd, don’t you think.
I dont’t think this has been a good week for “the Big Guy”. The budget surplus will make SP look good, and SP had some tough words about HOPE. Now this. I don’t think MT wanted to start his campaign in such a manner.
That being said, this poll is quite a big change from the last poll, and today’s poll doesn’t make sense with the trend of MT being close on SP’s heels, so I will wait before I cast judgement about the numbers.
[UPDATE]: Who managed to get a 58% job approval in the latest Survey USA Poll? Sonny did.
