AJC survey: Nathan Deal has lead; no front-runner in Senate race | Political Insider blog

I have an issue with this poll: the partisan self-identification of the sample appears to be skewed Democratic. We’ll talk more about what this means on Monday morning in the GaPundit.com email newsletter.

Deal has 47 percent support in a head-to-head matchup against 38 percent for Carter, his likely Democratic opponent. Deal’s support hit 50 percent when voters were asked whether they leaned toward either candidate.

The survey, conducted by SRBI Inc., polled 802 registered voters between Jan. 6 and Jan. 9 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Some 44 percent of the respondents identified themselves as a Democrat or Democrat-leaning, while 43 percent identified as Republican or Republican-leaning.

    Do you also have an issue with the fact that the poll excluded nearly half of the candidates? Some may see no problem with this exclusion, but it should be for the people to decide, not some journalist or political elite. Give us the information and let us decide for ourselves!
