Sorry I missed this yesterday but here’s another poll out of Georgia:
Jon Ossoff has a commanding lead in the Democratic primary to challenge U.S. Sen. David Perdue, though he’s still short of the majority-vote he needs to avoid a runoff, a WSB-TV poll released Wednesday shows.
The poll pegs Ossoff, an investigative journalist, at 42% of the vote with less than a week before the Tuesday election. Former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson netted 14% and Sarah Riggs Amico, the party’s 2018 lieutenant gubernatorial nominee, was at 9%.
About 28% were undecided and the remaining 7% indicated they would support one of the four lesser-known candidates in the race. The poll of 500 likely Democratic voters was conducted on Monday by Landmark Communications. It has a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.
It’s the first public survey of the race against Perdue in weeks, though several internal polls have showed Ossoff with hefty advantages over his rivals, thanks in part to his nationally-watched campaign for the 6th Congressional District in 2017. He lost that bid to Republican Karen Handel in a bruising runoff.
Once we have our nominee next week, we’ll be ready to flip another seat. In the mean time, click below to donate and get involved with Ossoff or the Democratic candidate of your choice:
