A poll by Landmark Communications of 500 likely voters conducted October 30th shows Republican Jody Hice with a substantial lead over his Democratic rival Ken Dious.
If the election for US Congress were held today and the candidates were Jody Hice, the Republican, and Kenneth Dious, the Democrat, for which candidate would you vote?
Landmark’s Mark Rountree said:
“Jody Hice has successfully consolidated Republican voters after a bruising primary. Self-described Republicans are supporting him by a 93-3% margin, which is actually remarkably a high percentage. The only way a Democrat would have been able to win an election in the Tenth would have been to win a significant number of Republican votes. That just hasn’t happened here.”
Another result of note is the poll shows Hice pulling 10.9% of the African-American vote. Are African-American Christians tired of seeing a Pastor bashed for his beliefs? Just a theory.
