New Poll Shows Democrat Nunn Pulling Ahead In Georgia Senate Race

October 15, 2014 9:44 am

Georgia’s Democratic Senate nominee Michelle Nunn pulled ahead of Republican David Perdue in a new Survey USA poll released Wednesday.

Nunn leads Perdue, 48 percent to 45 percent, among likely voters, according to the poll conducted for WXIA in Atlanta. Libertarian candidate Amanda Swafford took 3 percent. Last week, Survey USA put Perdue up, 46 percent to 45 percent.

If no candidate secures 50 percent of the vote on Election Day in Georgia, the election goes to a runoff between the top two candidates in January.

Perdue has generally led in the race, but TPM’s PollTracker average shows Nunn pulling even. She currently holds an average 1.1-point edge, according to PollTracker.

The Survey USA poll, conducted Oct. 10 to 13, survey 563 likely voters. Its margin of error is 4.2 points.
