SurveyUSA: Republicans Could Sweep Georgia

| November 3, 2014


ATLANTA — According to a WXIA 11Alive News poll conducted by outside research firm SurveyUSA, Republican Senate candidate David Perdue could very easily win his race and avoid a runoff. Perdue currently has 47 percent of the vote, while Democrat Michelle Nunn has 44 percent.

Libertarian Senate candidate Amanda Swafford has 5 percent of the vote. If she were to receive less than 3 percent of Tuesday’s vote, and if Perdue stays at least 3 points ahead of Nunn, a runoff would not be needed, according to SurveyUSA.

Four percent of voters say they are still undecided about the Senate candidates.

SurveyUSA says Nunn still leads among young voters, who are often the least reliable voters. Perdue leads 2:1 among white voters, while Nunn leads 7:1 among black voters. Twice as many Democrats are likely to cross over and vote for Perdue as Republicans who cross over and vote for Nunn, according to SurveyUSA; Perdue also holds 91 percent of the Republican base.

In the race for governor, Democrat Jason Carter holds 42 percent of the vote — his lowest number in 12 weeks. Incumbent Nathan Deal, meanwhile, is polling at 47 percent, his highest number. Libertarian Andrew Hunt has 5 percent of the vote, and 5 percent of voters are undecided.

According to SurveyUSA, Deal leads Carter 53 percent to 39 percent among the wealthiest Georgia voters. Deal also leads by 6 points among voters who cast their ballots early.

Republicans are ahead in the rest of Georgia’s political races as well, and many of them have the majority vote, meaning runoffs could be avoided.
