I would have thought GA had enough of the Carters.

Ugh.

Another disgusting political dynasty.

Can’t we have NEW blood in politics, or are we doomed to have the same 20 family names haunt us indefinitely?

I don’t buy the 7% undecided. In this political climate? Those 7% who claim they’re likely voters and undecided are either playing a game with the Rasmussen’s polling or they’re really not engaged at all and wont be on election day.

Better to save face and say something stupid than admit they don’t know one candidate from the other.

That is so weird.
I live in GA, and I don’t hear any big complaints about Deal. And Carter is mostly despised. I must not live in the area supporting Carter.

If Carter wins, then Nunn is probably going win, too.
Disaster!

It all depends on who answers the phone.

The devil is in the details of the sample.

As a GA resident, I don’t believe this either.

No poll on the race for governor should be taken seriously at this point. Nobody is paying attention now, and neither candidate in their respective primary was seriously challenged. Gov. Deal has been dogged by ethics issues, and the education establishment is upset by funding constraints. Nothing new there. But, assuming the Republican base is sufficiently energized by the Senate race in November, Deal should win by 6-8 percent.

here you go Little Ray

more Rasmussen numbers

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.

One could say the same thing about the situation in nearby FL; Gov. Scott has angered all the usual Democrat-related groups (teachers, ambulance lawyers, etc.), but Crist has no traction among the general public. There is no Senate election in FL this year, so all the other elections are U.S. House, state cabinet, legislature, or local, none of which are generating any statewide media, so it's going to depend on the ground game here in FL.

Look at the turnouts in the primaries where Rs turned out 2:1 over Ds....Horse shit.

If Obama were on the ballot again, the Atlanta race-vote would turn out. For Carter and Nunn, I can't imagine why they would.

Maybe it is in the “telephone” thing?
Do they poll through cellphones or just land-lines?
And how many people will answer a call from a poll service, esp if it came as “PRIVATE NUMBER” or was otherwise unidentified?

I live in GA also and I am not worried about Jason Carter or Michelle Nunn. GA is a conservative state. Nathan Deal is a major disappointment to conservatives but we will all vote him back in for 4 years to avoid a democrat.

We will also vote either Jack Kingston or David Perdue in as senator over Michelle Nunn.

Remember the election is not til November and the average voter does not wake up and pay attention until about 2 weeks before the election.

this push poll or “secret sauce adjusted” poll is to justify the margin of fraud. Remember there is an Atlanta article about an up and coming mayor.

(see also 1996 Olympic corruption.

That being said about Deal, as someone who lives in Georgia I cannot see them Dems doing that well. The number of primary votes for GOP candidates almost doubled those of Dem candidates.

Governor deal won his primary with 71% of the vote.If we here in Ga had a problem with him then his numbers wouldn’t have been that high.This is a pure bullscat poll.

You're right, Obama didn't. However, if memory serves me right, he did come pretty close in 2008. In fact, I remember some election forecasters predicting Georgia would go to Obama over McCain that year.

Blood runs thick down here. What I am finding out, having moved here 3 years ago, is that GA is not all that conservative.

That’s what changed my state-—CA-—from being at the heart of Reagan Country to being solid blue.

Even 2008, GA was decided rather early and Dems did not spend much time and money in 2012.

I was listening to Eric Erickson last night and he reported that the numbers were probably close but looking through the details of the rest of the survey, Obama approval was about 50/50.

He is nowhere near that in reality but Carter is still rather popular there.

I think Deal will still win anyway but it will be closer than it really should be.

Remember the year - 1979.
That was the year WW4 started and Carter was the on who allowed it to happen.

Had he a plan for the post Shaw era, the radicals would not be in the position they are today.

That sounds about right. Deal-53%, Carter-45%.

“Governor Deal won his primary with 71% of the vote.”

Turnout was extremely low (and even lower among Democrats), and Deal had no credible opposition. So, I don't think Deal’s margin of victory in the Republican primary is any more informative about the outcome of the general election than the Rasmussen poll. In any case, I agree that Deal will win easily in the general. Statewide, Georgia is still very Republican.

It sure is. The Republican South sure didn't last long. (African-Americans + Latinos) X (Fraud) = Democrat Majorities
