Election Polls 2006: Georgia Governor

Scott Rasmussen reports:

Lt. Governor Mark Taylor (D) spent the first half of 2006 winning the right to be challenge Governor Sonny Perdue (R) in this November’s election. The second half of the year may be a bit tougher.

Perdue has a 53% to 39% advantage over Taylor in the latest Rasmussen Reports election poll in Georgia. That’s not much different that our last poll before Taylor’s primary victory. As if a 14-point lead wasn’t enough, Perdue began the general election campaign with $9 million in his campaign war chest while Taylor had just over $1 million.

    i’d like to be sonny right now. plus he has his grassroots organized and ready to go. but, don;t ever count taylor out, he’s a mean tough campaigner.

  2. I’ve just got to say this…

    Ladies and gentlemen of the Georgia Republican Party, I’m looking forward to having spirited and vigorous debate and with y’all this fall, and let’s hope the best candidate wins…

    …which of course is the Big Guy, Mark Taylor.

  3. Did anyone notice that this poll was conducted July 19th, the day after the primary? I’d imagine Taylor has done a nice job of consolidating the base since then, a lot of difficult feelings have subsided and the Democrats are more unified now. Let’s not forget that probably about 10% of the November electorate had voted for Cox the previous day when she lost. If half of them told a pollster they were leaning towards Perdue that day (because they were still sore about the primary) then the real race could be 48-44.

    Expect a close race.

    Lest we forget, 4 years ago Roy had a huge money lead and a huge poll lead but didnt get re-elected… Just saying.

  7. Bull Moose says:

    Don’t get overconfident, Mark Taylor was also way down against Cathy Cox and came back to win… Don’t write him off just yet…

    White male voters strongly endorse Ray “States Rights” McBerry to be our next governor.

    McBerry ’06!

  9. rugby_fan says:

    Oh yea white male voters? rugby_fan officially makes his first endorsement…Henry Ellis.

    C’mon folks, let’s get the ball rolling for him. Our first royal governor didn’t do anything to create a self sustaining government and under Ellis, we can do better!

    And let’s face it. We are at war with the dirty French. We need a governor who can stand up to the French and defeat them. Ellis can.

  10. whitemalevoters says:

    Oh yea white male voters?

    Uh, yeah.

    Henry Ellis, c’mon, Rugby_fan. Henry Ellis is a KNOWN supporter of gay marriage. I bet he doesn’t even support posting the Ten Commandments in EVERY government building. I heard he HATES the old Confederate battle flag. Henry Ellis my ass.

    Rugby, Ray “States Rights” McBerry is the only TRUE Royal Governor left in the race.

    McBerry ’06!

    Andre-

    You mean the big FAT guy???!!!!!

    The big FAT guy has not missed many meals.

    The Spanish people are calling him –

    “Cerdo gordo grande” ( big fat pig) on the Hispanic
    Radio Stations.

    They say –

    “El suyo está robando el dinero de la gente pobre.”
    He is stealing money from the poor.

    “Fingimiento ser un buen hombre.”
    Pretending to be a good person.

    “Él es gordo. Sabemos mejor.”
    He is fat . We know better.

    “El no sabe trabajar”
    He does not kow how to work.

    GOPeach,

    How can YOU of all people on this site accuse someone of being an idiot? First of all, don’t refer to white male voters as a singular entity, i.e. “is an idiot.” We are not one person. We are all white male voters. How many times do we have to explain this stuff? As we are all white male voters, we speak for all white male voters.

    Wait. I’m sorry. I should have written that in a form YOU would understand. Let me try again.

    GOPeach,

    How can YOU of all people on this site

    accuse someone of being an idiot? First of all, don’t refer

    to white male voters as a singular

    entity, i.e. “is an

    idiot.” We are not one person. We are all white male

    voters. How many times do we have

    to explain this stuff? As we are all white male

    voters, we speak for all white male voters.

    whitemalevoters,
    Wow! I wish I had some of that stuff you’re smoking! Good way to pass a lazy Sunday afternoon!

    GOPeach,
    I’m sure the immigrants just love Sonny Perdue. I mean he only caused them to protest 50,000 deep against a bill he signed – SB 529. Taylor has supported the bill, but speaking as someone who works in the immigrant Latino community the votes will go against the person who signed the bill, not the candidate seeking office.

    Mira, Mrs. Peach, las personas trabajan con Latinos son mayoritariamente Democratas, porque los Democratas creen en justcia, verdad, igualdad y no utilizan el tema de la inmigracion para intimdar a los votantes y manipularlos. Los ciudadanos Latinos van a votar por candidatos que conparten sus inquietudes no por que sean gordos o flacos. Se que Perdue ha perdido peso pero no le va ayudar en su eleccion.

    PS. Yo pienso que tu estas gorda porque tu sos un puta Republicano y ellos misma, correcto?

    “un puta Republicano ”

    Melb,

    Calling someone a whore in any language is not a very classy thing to do.

  16. Melb says:

    What about the rest of the post demonbeck? And it is not very classy to lie about others calling someone a theif or fat, I was just trying to communicate on their level.

    M.T. the big guy he’s only big in a physical sense because he isn’t the big guy when it comes to character or ethics. We Replublicans shouldn’t get to overconfident, but the future looks bright or SONNY!!!
