A new poll finds that Republican Gov. Nathan Deal has a 9-point lead over Democratic challenger Jason Carter in the race for Georgia governor.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s poll showed that Deal has 47 percent support in a head-to-head matchup against his likely Democratic opponent, state Sen. Jason Carter, who had 38 percent.

Carter campaign spokeswoman Meg Robinson said the poll shows that a majority of voters don’t support Deal. She said the results show that Deal is a weak incumbent.

The poll also showed no clear front-runner in the contest to succeed retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

The poll of 802 registered voters was conducted Jan. 6-9 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

It is depressing how much 2006 cycle polling was by Strategic Vision, which I think we can ignore as not valid. But for some perspective on February 16th Rasmussen showed Perdue 53, Taylor 33.
