A new poll shows incumbent Republican Gov. Nathan Deal leading Democrat Jason Carter, and Republican David Perdue ahead of Democrat Michelle Nunn. Early voting begins in two months.
The poll was conducted by SurveyUSA August 14-17 for Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV. Likely voters were asked, “If the election were held today, who would you vote for?”
Deal received 48 percent of support, while 39 percent of poll participants said they would vote for Carter. Libertarian Andrew Hunt received a 4 percent nod. Eight percent said they are not sure how they would vote.
In the race for U.S. Senate, 50 percent said they would vote for Perdue. Forty-one percent said they would vote for Nunn. Libertarian Amanda Swafford received 3 percent of support.
