Against former Secretary of State Karen Handel, Nunn gets 43 percent while Handel gets 39 percent. And in a general election matchup between Nunn and Rep. Jack Kingston, Nunn gets 44 percent and Kingston gets 41 percent, the poll found.

The poll was conducted from March 5 to March 6 among 580 Georgia voters.
