Some very encouraging news today out of Georgia:
Between July 9and 15, Garin–Hart–Yang interviewed a representative sample of 800 likely general election voters in Georgia. The survey, which was conducted on both landlines and cell phones, was fully representative of an expected November 2020 general election by key factors such as gender, age, geography, partisan affiliation, and race. For example, whites comprise 61% of our sample and African–Americans comprise 30%. The survey’s margin of error is +3.5%. The following are the key findings:
1. Joe Biden currently leads Donald Trump in Georgia. The Vice President is supported by 47% of voters, President Trump garners 43%, and 10% are undecided. Both candidates win overwhelmingly among their respective parties, with Biden’s overall advantage coming from his fifteen–point advantage among Independents.
2. Jon Ossoff has a 45% to 44%advantage over Republican Senator David Perdue, as the race starts in essentially a dead heat.Because Ossoff currently has a name ID deficit with the incumbent, his lead is larger among Georgia voters who know both candidates—an encouraging sign as Ossoff will increase his profile.
