Georgia poll: Kingston leads Perdue 49% to 38% for July 22 runoff | Human Events

The June 11-12 Human Events/Gravis poll of 1,140 Georgia Republicans shows Rep. John H. “Jack” Kingston leading businessman David Perdue 49 percent to 38 percent, as the two men close in on the July 22 primary runoff.

“Kingston has a strong lead and it looks like it is his race to lose,” said Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based polling company that conducted the poll, which carries a 3 percent margin of error.

“Kingston has a strong lead and it looks like it is his race to lose,” said Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based polling company that conducted the poll, which carries a 3 percent margin of error.

Kaplan said part of his confidence in the poll is that number of likely voters. “Seventy-nine percent of the respondents reported being very likely to vote, in addition to another 16 percent told us they are likely to vote.”

Derrick Dickey, the press secretary for the Perdue campaign, said he is confident the voters will choose the former CEO of Reebok.

“Georgians understand that you can’t trust the same politicians to fix the problems that they created,” he said. “On Election Day, we believe they will give a conservative outsider with the right experience a chance.”
