The poll shows Deal leading by eight points just ten days after a poll showed Deal and Barnes deadlocked. Voters were asked if the election to determine the governor of Georgia were held today, which candidate would they vote for?
The results showed former former Rep. Deal with 45 percent and former Governor Barnes with 37 percent. Libertarian candidate John Monds remained at 5 percent.
13 percent are still undecided, a number that grew slightly from the last survey. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.
