While an earlier AJC poll released today showed David Perdue leading Michelle Nunn by 6, InsiderAdvantage pegs the GOPer with a much more formidable edge of 10 percentage points.
Released this afternoon, it shows Perdue leading his Democratic rival by a 50-40 percent margin, meeting the threshold necessary to avoid a runoff. Libertarian Amanda Swafford claims from 5 percent of respondents, with the remaining 5 percent undecided.
As for the governor’s race, it shows Governor Nathan Deal leading Jason Carter by a slightly larger 44-40 percent margin, with Libertarian Andrew Hunt taking 7 percent support.
In a release of the numbers, it was noted that the African-American turnout was weighted at 33 percent, a figure higher than the roughly 30 percent turnout predicted by many onlookers.
