No real details of the poll in this article so speculate as to what this all means.
An exclusive Channel 2 Action News poll shows a statistical tie between Gov. Nathan Deal and Democratic challenger Jason Carter.
The poll conducted by Landmark Communications/Rosetta Stone asked Georgia voters who they would vote for governor of Georgia.
Deal, a Republican, leads Carter by a margin of 43 percent to 39 percent – a number within the four-point margin of error. Eighteen percent remain undecided.
“I think it’s great news, not only for Jason but for the Democrats in the state,” political strategist Tharon Johnson said. “I think that being within a basically statistical dead heat right now, that’s a really good place for a challenger to be against an incumbent.”
UPDATE: The Carter campaign posted video of Lori Geary’s report on WSB. At the end she says the poll shows more people identifying themselves as Democrats than Republicans. I find that hard to believe. So, is the sample off or is the future here for Georgia Democrats?
