Landmark has been very busy polling everywhere -even in races that seem foregone conclusions. The fabled demographic shifts, upon which Democrats pin their hopes for future relevance in Georgia, do not seem to be affecting Congressman Rob Woodall’s chances for re-election in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District. In fact, Rep. Woodall has a surprisingly high level of support among African American voters. Says Landmark: “Congressman Rob Woodall is leading his Democratic opponent Thomas Wight by a solid 61-37% margin in the election for Georgia’s Seventh Congressional District…”
“Congressman Woodall’s support among African-American voters is somewhat higher than the numbers seen by many other Republicans, with 13% of African-American voters and 15% of self-described Democrats giving their vote to Woodall. Combined with the support of 93%of self-described Republicans, Woodall is in a solid position to win re-election,” according to Landmark Communications President Mark Rountree.
