A new WSB-TV/Insider Advantage poll was released today.
An InsiderAdvantage telephone survey of registered voters in Georgia conducted Sunday evening shows Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine holding on to and slightly expanding his lead in the race for the GOP race for Governor. The other big news from the survey was an increase in support for former Secretary of State Karen Handel. A survey of 946 registered voters who stated that if the election to determine the GOP nomination for governor were held today, they would be likely to vote, yielded the following results:
Undecided/No Opinion: 36%
The GOP survey was weighted for age, race, and gender and has a margin of error of 3.1%
Ox currently holds the lead, but InsiderAdvantage makes light of Handel’s numbers:
The other big news from this survey is that Handel appears to be on the move, to the extent such can take place this early out.
What’s interesting about the poll is that Johnson is closing in on Deal. The gap is a mere 2% according to the poll. The gap could shrink with all that has occurred in just 24 hours. We’ll keep you posted on the goings on.
