First poll out that doesn’t have Oxendine in the run-off (943 people, 3% MOE taken July 13th)
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Georgia finds Deal and Handel each earning 25% support. State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine, the early leader in the Republican race, runs a close third with 20% of the vote.
Clearly the majority of those polled don’t read Peach Pundit:
Deal, who resigned from the House to run for governor just after he voted against the health care bill, is viewed Very Favorably by 22% of the state’s GOP Primary voters and Very Unfavorably by eight percent (8%). One-in-five (21%) don’t know enough about him to venture any kind of opinion.
For Handel, Very Favorables are 19% and Very Unfavorables are seven percent (7%). Sixteen percent (16%) have no opinion of her.
Seventeen percent (17%) have a Very Favorable opinion of Oxendine, while 13% view him Very Unfavorably. Eleven percent (11%) have no opinion of the longtime insurance commissioner.
Other tid bits:
Perdue has a 71% approval rating amoung the Republicans polled. Men favor Deal, women favor Handel and only 7% approve of President Obama.
