From a Landmark Communications Press Release:
Landmark Releases Poll for Seventh Congressional Runoff: Former Linder Chief of Staff Woodall Leads
Woodall leading up to Aug. 10 election, Gwinnett margin is major factor
(Duluth)—Former Chief of Staff to Congressman Rob Woodall has a solid lead over Jody Hice in Tuesday’s 7th Congressional District Republican runoff election, according to a poll conducted by Landmark Communications Inc.
Woodall, the former chief of staff to U.S. Rep. John Linder, leads minister/radio personality Jody Hice by a margin of 47-32%. As much as 21% of voters said they were undecided/not committed in the election, but still intend to vote.
A county-by-county analysis reveals that Woodall has a commanding lead in Forsyth (59-15%) and Gwinnett (50-29%). Woodall also leads in Newton (44-33%) and Walton (46-37%). However, the Gwinnett margin is significant since 70% of the district’s vote is in that county. Hice leads in his own county of Barrow by 54-27% margin.
“Rob Woodall’s support in Gwinnett County will likely push him to victory on Tuesday,” said Mark Rountree, president of Landmark Communications. “Gwinnett makes up about 70% of the Republican primary vote in this district.”
Landmark Communications randomly selected voting households that participated in the July 20 Republican primary election with 789 voters participating in the survey and completing all questions. The survey was conducted by telephone on Sunday, August 8.
Landmark Communications paid for this survey on its own and does not represent a client in this election. The margin of error of the survey is plus or minus 3.5%.
