FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A new InsiderAdvantage/RosettaStone poll conducted on 2/10/2010 of 580 likely Republican Primary voters reveals little change in the race for Governor. Notable differences include a small drop in support for Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine and a small increase for former President Pro Temp of the Georgia State Senate, Eric Johnson.
A poll conducted on the same date regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sundays of 1,235 likely Georgia voters shows general election voters supporting Sunday sales by a 12 point margin. The survey of 580 Republican Primary voters shows a much more grim picture for the supporters of Sunday sales. Republican Primary voters are almost evenly divided on the subject of Sunday sales. With no clear mandate among Republican Primary voters, expect little movement on the issue of Sunday sales among a Republican dominated General Assembly.

Overall, the race stays pretty much the same. Ox in front with Handel and Deal essentially tied for second and Johnson in 4th. However, it seems to me (compared to other polls we’ve posted here, here, here, and here) that the number of undecideds are rising. Oxendine has not solidified his status as frontrunner and none of the other candidates have made a move to challenge him.
