Rasmussen Poll: Michelle Nunn Leads GOP Runoff Opponents

May 23, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Georgia Senate Democratic nominee Michelle Nunn leads both of her potential general election Republican opponents in head-to-head match-ups according to a new poll from conservative-leaning pollster Rasmussen Reports.

The latest Rasmussen survey released Friday found Nunn leading Rep. Jack Kingston 47 percent to 41 percent among like Georgia voters. Three percent said they preferred another candidate and 9 percent said they were undecided.

In a matchup against businessman David Perdue, Nunn leads 45 percent to 41 percent while another 7 percent said they did not favor either candidate and six percent said they were undecided.

The poll comes just a few days after the Georgia primary where Nunn cleanly won the nomination but Kingston and Perdue were forced into a runoff that will take place on July 22, as none of the candidates in the field were able to get enough votes to prevent a a runoff from happening. Kingston and Perdue were the top two vote-getters.

The Rasmussen poll of 750 likely voters was conducted May 21-22. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
