GA-Gov: Two New Polls Show A Toss-Up Race Between Stacey Abrams (D) & Brian Kemp (R)

2 min read

Two new polls confirm we have a real race here in Georgia. First, this one that came out yesterday:

With nearly a month until Election Day, a new poll in Georgia shows Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp in a neck-and-neck race for Governor.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the poll, conducted by Landmark Communications, showed Kemp leading Abrams 48-46 among likely Georgia voters, which falls within the poll’s 3 percent margin of error. Libertarian Ted Metz had about 2 percent of support while only 3 percent of voters were undecided.

The poll was of 964 likely voters and is the first public poll to be released in the gubernatorial race since a September poll from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed the candidates in a 45-45 tie.

The poll also noted a distinct gender gap with Abrams leading Kemp 51-42 among women while the Kemp had a 55-41 advantage among men. Abrams also has a 58-25 lead among independents who traditionally make up the state’s largest contingent.

Kemp, however, holds a huge lead with voters 65-and-older by a 56-38 margin.

Today, NBC News/SurveyMonkey’s poll confirmed this race is a toss-up:

As November 6 approaches, the race for Georgia governor is neck and neck between candidates Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams, according to a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll.

The poll, released on Tuesday, shows if the 2018 election for Georgia governor were held today, 43 percent of Peach State voters would vote for Brian Kemp (R) and 43 percent would vote for Stacey Abrams (D). Fourteen percent are undecided.

The poll, conducted online from September 9 through September 24, was of among a national sample of 2,236 adults over 18, including 1,955 registered voters who live in Georgia.

The poll has an error estimate for registered voters plus or minus 3.0 percent.
