A new Vox Populi survey, sponsored by Ending Spending Action Fund, in Georgia shows that Republicans lead in both the gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races. Governor Nathan Deal is leading Democrat Jason Carter 49 to 42, with Libertarian Andrew Hunt getting 3 percent of the vote and 7 percent undecided. In the Senate race, Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn 48 to 43. Libertarian Amanda Swafford receives 3 percent support and another 6 percent remain undecided in this race.
Both Republican candidates receive strong support among Independents, with Governor Deal winning Independents 51 to 38 and Perdue leading 51 to 41. Deal and Perdue are also leading with women voters. If the election were held today, women would vote for Nathan Deal by a margin of 46 to 42 and for David Perdue by a margin of 45 to 43.
The sample size for the survey is 602 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 4.0%. All interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and were conducted October 28, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.
