Georgia Senate: Nunn (D) Holds Slight Edge Over GOP Finalists
Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 23, 2014

Posted on 05/24/2014 11:19:19 AM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Georgia Republicans won’t have a specific nominee for a couple more months, but the final two contenders are running slightly behind Democrat Michelle Nunn in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the U.S. Senate race in Georgia.

A new statewide telephone survey of Likely Georgia Voters finds Nunn leading Congressman Jack Kingston 47% to 41%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while nine percent (9%) are undecided.

In a matchup with businessman David Perdue, Nunn earns 45% support to her GOP rival’s 42%. Seven percent (7%) favor another candidate in this contest, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

Neither of those in the runoff are great choices, but I prefer Jack Kingston. He is by all accounts a likeable guy and his south Georgia base is a big asset, which should counter the Nunn name. IMHO, David Perdue is an outsider in the way that Bob Corker is an outsider, an insider’s favorite outsider.

Is Georgia going the way of Virginia?

Ditto on preferring Jack Kingston over the RINO wannabe Perdue.

The metropolitan Atlanta area and the growing number of illegal aliens are the main reason. There is still time to fix this.

I have little faith that the Republicans will get control of the Senate. If a Liberal Rat is ahead in “Red” Georgia, it makes it even less likely.

The United States of America is a shadow of its former self.

Take care of your own, it’s a Brave New World. All those people out there who support such Liberal Nonsense are the enemy, period. We are alone and getting lonelier every day.

Zero chance of control - even if they win a majority. :)

Solution: A young president with true conservative conviction, articulate, smart and having an Hispanic last name. Perhaps an Hispanic Vice President would help, too.

Whatever. Name recog is all it is. Ga’s 9th will go 75/25 R.
In the ATL it will be 48/52 or 52/48 close.

Georgia stays R. Won’t go conservative... will stay R. Which is more betterer than going D. jmho

No. This witch is polling well because of her daddy's name, no other reason. Once the general election gets into full swing it will become apparent that she won't win. Particularly not if Kingston is the nominee.

Say what you want but the nunn name is still respected in ga. He was viewed as a conservative dim. Don’t underestimate this chick.

I think not.

In the primary the number of Republican voters far out numbered the Democrat voters.

Besides, in GA few republicans that i know answer the home phone for researchers.

Flush out her views on issues. She doesn't think the health care law should be overturned. Most in Ga. do. She will be Obamas clone. No independent thinker here.
This seat should not go to the rats with all the scandals. She will just be part of the problem.
Go after her, treat her just like the rats treat conservatives or veterans.
Important seat here, don't just assume the south will give to you, Our nation needs it and 6 more like it.

Too many people are getting cocky. This November is going to be a big surprise and not in a good way.

No...she is getting by on name recollection alone.

Her daddy, Sam Nunn, was the last respected Democrat (other than Zell Miller) in Ga.

So far her ads haven't even mentioned that she is a Democrat.

When all is said and done, she will lose 55/45 to whoever is the Republican candidate.

She will run claiming she would have voted against Obamacare.

Consider this scenario. The gop takes the senate. Everything continues to go downhill but now the media and the democrats can blame the republicans. So, Hillary wins and the democrats take back control of both houses in 2016.

Which would be better? Two more years of obama and Reid? Or two years of obama and McConnell then four years of Hillary and Reid? I’m not sure the gop taking the senate will be good for the country in the long run.

I remember the Nunn family. I remember her sniveling father besmirching the reputation Senator John G. Tower during his Senate hearing on his nomination as Secretary of Defense. Of course, there was no mention of Sam’s rolling a car into a ditch, blind drunk. Double standards even then. He went on to lucrative positions in the plutocracy. John Tower died in an airplane crash in Georgia. Let us rid ourselves of such people and their lineage.

So true. The 7th Dist will probably be 90/10 R.

Michelle Nunn has a better chance of being hit in a drone strike than getting elected to that senate seat.

It will either be Kingston or Perdue. Preferably Kingston.

Oh I’m not, that’s why I heavily advised against nominating a weak candidate like Paul Broun, who would have been at serious risk of losing.

But against a competent campaigner like Kingston (who I suggest is clearly the more conservative and electable choice in the GOP runoff), in what should be a good year, there is no way she should win.

She was too stupid to disavow the amnesty bill that even Isaakson and Chambliss voted against.

She touted Rubio and McCain as doing good work.

Every time she brings up “working together”, her GOP opponent should mention bipartisan gun control and doubling immigration.

Rasmussen is no longer Rasmussen. They lost Scott. Believe nothing they postulate.
