Atlanta’s Channel 11 is out with the results of new polling by SurveyUSA. In the Governor’s race, Nathan Deal leads Jason Carter 48%-39%, while Libertarian Andrew Hunt has 4% and 8% are undecided. In the Senate race, David Perdue leads Michelle Nunn 50%-41%, with 3% for Libertarian Amanda Swafford.
While the results mirror other recent polling, the details are interesting. In the Governor’s race,
Deal holds 83% of the Republican base. Carter holds 82% of the Democratic base. Independents break sharply Republican. Moderates provide some support for Carter, but at the current rate, it’s not enough to catch Deal. Libertarian Hunt takes more votes from the Republican Deal than he does from the Democrat Carter.
And in the Senate race,
Perdue’s lead comes entirely from men, where he leads by 19 points. While Atlanta votes Democrat, Northwest GA votes 2:1 Republican. South and East GA votes 5:4 Republican.
