For those who love them some polls, here’s the latest from Rasmussen.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Democratic Primary voters in Georgia finds Barnes earning 59% of the vote. His nearest competitor, state Attorney General Thurbert Baker, trails with 16% support.
This is the widest margin between the two candidates yet, but Barnes has far outdistanced Baker from the start. In August of last year, he led Baker by 33 points in a hypothetical primary matchup.
Two other primary hopefuls, former Georgia Secretary of State David Poythress and House Minority Leader Dubose Porter, each earn five percent (5%) of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while 12% are undecided.
And on the Republican side, this poll has Handel and Deal tied for the lead.
