Republican Senate candidate David Perdue leads his Democratic opponent Michelle Nunn in Georgia, a SurveyUSA/11Alive poll shows. According to the poll, with a “5-point right turn in one of the nation’s most high-visibility contests,” David Perdue now leads 48-45 over Nunn.
Perdue spokesman Mark Bednar said:
Our campaign continues to gain momentum, because Georgians know that David Perdue has the right experience and vision to get our country back on track. Like so many Georgians, David knows Washington has gotten us into this mess, and it will take a true outsider to get us headed in the right direction. That’s why he will go to Washington to grow our economy and create jobs, repeal and replace Obamacare, and create more opportunity for all Georgians. It’s clear that voters want a Senator who will work for Georgia, not a Senator who will work for President Obama.
The same polling outfit gave Nunn a two point lead last week. According to the SurveyUSA analysis, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported:
Among women, where Perdue had trailed by 13 points and now trails by just 2. And among core Republicans, where Perdue’s 84-point advantage is the largest it has been in seven WXIA-TV tracking polls going back to 08/18/14. There is movement to Perdue among seniors, where he now leads by 25 points. Worse for Nunn: among voters who tell SurveyUSA they have already returned a ballot, Perdue leads by 10 points.
Additionally, the survey predicts a 31 percent turnout among African-Americans and 52 percent turnout among women. The margin of error is +/- four percentage points.
