I must have missed the ribbon cutting, but it looks like Mark Rountree built a poll factory somewhere in Duluth. Here’s their latest poll on Ga-8:
(Duluth)—Republican challenger Austin Scott is leading over Democratic incumbent Jim Marshall by solid margins within Georgia Congressional District 8. Last night’s poll results show Marshall at 39.1 percent of the vote with Scott in the lead at 52.5 percent.
In 2006, the African American vote accounted for 25 percent of all voters in the district. For this poll, Landmark Communications raised that percentage to 26.5 in order to accommodate for demographic growth.
