Morris News Service and WAGA TV released the third poll in a week on the Georgia Senate race, and for the third poll in a row, David Perdue leads the pack.
When surveyed Sunday and Monday, 17 percent said they were supporting Perdue, the former chief executive of Reebok and Dollar General and the cousin of Georgia’s last governor.
Savannah Congressman Jack Kingston is in second with 15 percent, although effectively tied with Perdue by coming within the poll’s 3.26 percent margin of error. Next are Athens Congressman Paul Broun, 10 percent; Marietta Congressman Phil Gingrey, 8 percent; former Secretary of State Karen Handel, 5 percent and “other” with 1 percent. The poll did not ask about Derrick Grayson or Art Gardner who never won election or raised significant sums.
The overall leader, though, is Undecided, with 44%. That’s in line with the other polls.
The first absentee ballots go out in nine days, on April 5th.
