Here’s a snapshot of what 338 registered voters thought about the upcoming U.S. Senate and Governor’s race last Wednesday night, courtesy of Walter Jones & the Morris News Service:
For the new Governor’s primary,
Deal commands 50 percent while Dalton Mayor David Pennington, who announced this week he is challenging Deal, garnered just 8 percent. The remaining 42 percent either had no opinion or supported another candidate.
And for the US Senate race, it’s a jump ball,
The four announced Republican hopefuls for the U.S. Senate are essentially tied when considering the margin of error, and one exploratory candidate, political newcomer David Perdue, has 5 percent.
Congressmen Jack Kingston at 17 percent, Phil Gingrey at 15, and Paul Broun with 11 are splitting the vote so far with former Secretary of State Karen Handel, who has 13 percent. The remaining 39 percent are undecided or support another candidate.
Please argue in the space below about the crosstabs or how the activist federal judge moving up the calendar by 2 months changes everything and makes this invalid, or that the poll proves everything you already know to be true. It’s Friday. Knock yourselves out.
