Interesting bits from a poll…

Strategic Vision is out with a new poll and it has some interesting items in it.  Most interesting to me where the numbers for the race for President.  In Georgia, Rudy Giuliani polls at 27% followed by McCain at 24%, Newt Gingrich at 12% and Mitt Romney trailing behind in the single digits at 7%.  Romney is only 4 points ahead of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and yet Romney has invested a lot of time and money into Georgia. 

On the Democratic side, no surprise, Senator Clinton is ahead at 27% compared to Senator Barack Obama at 20% followed by John Edwards at 15% and Al Gore at 11%. 

In terms of our elected officials here in GA, Saxby is sitting at 51% which is a pretty good place to start…

    What’s interesting is that I think the R race for President is going to get very interesting. You have the potential that Tom Tancredo will find a following on the niche issue of imigration. You’ve got the hard right looking for a candidate. Then you have the truly credible candidates lingering at the top Giuliani and McCain so far and I think you have to put former Governor Tommy Thompson up there.

    He’s not polling high right now, but in terms of being qualified, capable, and transformative, he’s the man. He and Newt will make a good alliance of ideas and a front man.

    Only 33% of Georgians approve of Bush’s “surge” in troops. Only 38% approve of the way he has handled Iraq. Bush has a 42% approval rating overall.

    Here’s my favorite:

    14. Would you support changing the current Georgia law, and allow alcohol sales on Sunday?
    Yes 52%
    No 30%
    Undecided 18%

    Now, using the logic of all those who pushed for a gay marriage ban…you know, the logic that basically stated it was okay since the majority of Georgians support it…using that same logic, shouldn’t that crowd be jumping all over the chance to lift our ban on Sunday sales since the majority of Georgians support the lift?
