Some very encouraging news today out of Georgia:
An internal poll released by Democrat Stacey Abrams on Sunday suggests why her campaign is so bullish headed into the final six weeks of the gubernatorial contest.
A Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group survey of more than 600 likely Georgia voters shows the race against Republican Brian Kemp is neck-and-neck. The poll, which was funded by the Abrams campaign, has the Democrat narrowly leading Kemp within the 4-point margin of error.
And like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s poll earlier this month, the survey estimates the rivals are fighting over a small sliver of the electorate, with only 7 percent of voters still undecided.
Like any internal poll, the results should be taken with a grain of salt.
The Abrams survey was made public to show how the Democrat has strengthened her position in the lead-up to early voting and narrowed the gender gap among men. (Her camp did not release crosstabs showing those details.)
The AJC’s survey, which weighed Republican voters slightly more heavily than Abrams’, showed that while women heavily supported Abrams over Kemp, 49 percent to 38 percent, men preferred the Republican by a 14-point margin.
Let’s keep up the momentum and have the Blue Wave hit Georgia big time. Click below to donate and get involved with Abrams and her fellow Georgia Democrats’ campaigns:
