New IA Poll Show Deal Up 8.

From the Southern Political Report.

In the race for governor, Nathan Deal leads former Gov. Roy Barnes by eight points – 49 percent to 41 percent. The Libertarian has dropped to 3 percent, and 7 percent are undecided.

In the race for lieutenant governor, incumbent Casey Cagle has a 50 percent to 36 percent lead over Democrat Carol Porter. The Libertarian is receiving 3 percent and some 12 percent are undecided.

In the race for attorney general, Republican nominee Sam Olens has 50 percent to Democratic rival Ken Hodges’ 40 percent. The Libertarian is at 2 percent, while 8 percent (when rounded down) have no opinion.

The survey was conducted Sunday evening utilizing Insider’s IVR telephone system. It includes results from 522 registered voters who said they were likely to vote in the November elections. It is weighted for age, race, gender and political affiliation, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.

    Just goes to show you how dumb the voters in this state are. How can this be? Don’t they READ peach pundit?????????????

  2. LoyaltyIsMyHonor says:

    Oh Crap. You do realize that a vote for Deal is really a vote for Cagle/Porter? After his federal indictment that is…think about it….

  3. Shocking, I know, in Georgia for the more conservative candidate to have won the Republican primary runoff, and for the more conservative of the general election candidates to be ahead in the polls. Wonder of wonders!

  4. Three Jack says:

    ajc’s jay bookman summing up raw deal’s career in congress — “In a 17-year career in Congress, most of it as a member of the Republican majority, Deal sponsored no successful legislation of any importance, rose to no leadership position and developed no expertise or focus on any issue. He walked through the halls of Congress while leaving no footprint, and is likely to do the same in the Capitol.”

    any of you dealheads want to dispute bookman’s summary? what has deal done during his decades of ‘public service’ to reduce the size of government?

  5. The candidates that Insider Advantage is afraid to mention by name:

    John Monds

    Lt. Governor
    Dan Barber

    Attorney General
    Don Smart

    I love that Matt The Hack Towery has to ignore, include “unlikely” likely voters and use over the top rhetoric, to try to put a positive spin on his polling due to his GOP pseudo-conservative candidates struggling to get near 50% in a anti-Liberal year… in an anti-Liberal state… SPEAKS VOLUMES!!!

    Here’s to the Voters sending even a louder message on Nov 2nd to the -R big tax and spenders.

      Why would IA be afraid of mentioning Libertarians by name? I don’t see a motive here. LP being a threat would be good for IA as it would result in a desire for more polling.

    • B Balz says:

      Think how angry 50%+ voters must feel about the AJC’s blatant anti-GOP/Deal spin.

      Your Party failed in a cycle that it should have excelled. I am deeply disappointed, frankly, I expected more.
