Poll: Dem Barnes Tied With GOPer Deal In GA-GOV Race

A new InsiderAdvtange poll shows former Dem Gov. Roy Barnes running even with former Republican Rep. Nathan Deal in the Georgia gubernatorial race.

The latest numbers have Barnes and Deal deadlocked, 42%-42%, with Libertarian candidate John Monds polling at 5%. When InsiderAdvtange polled the race in mid-August, Deal held a four-point lead on Barnes, 45%-41%. A SurveyUSA poll from September 12 produced a very different result, giving the Republican a 49%-38% advantage.

The TPM Poll Average shows Deal on top of Barnes and Monds, 45.3%-40.3%-6.3%.
