New poll: David Perdue 49, Michelle Nunn 40 

By Daniel Malloy

Republican firm Vox Populi polling is out with a new survey showing Republican David Perdue claiming 49 percent of the vote in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race, compared to 40 percent for Democrat Michelle Nunn.

The poll was conducted Sunday and Monday. The news started to spread about the Nunn campaign’s internal memo Monday afternoon.

Among the other findings were: 56 percent disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance; 23 percent believe Obamacare is a success, compared to 48 percent who say failure and 28 percent say something in between; and 52 percent say the fact that Nunn “has refused to say whether or not she would have voted for Obamacare” makes them less likely to vote for her.

In other news, 72 percent want to see the Atlanta Braves keep their name and 8 percent want them to change it, in light of the debate over the Washington Redskins.

The poll’s sample was 62 percent white and 28 percent black, which is in line with the racial vote share in Georgia’s 2010 midterm elections. The Nunn campaign is hoping to shift those numbers so the African-American vote share is closer to 30 percent.

Here’s a note on the poll’s methodology, a mix of robo-calls and mobile responses:

The sample size for the survey is 624 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.9%. 497 interviews were completed using automate telephone technology and 127 were conducted using mobile based survey technology. All interviews were conducted July 27–July  28, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling.

This is the third public poll conducted in the week since Perdue won the GOP nomination. The prior two were split on who’s winning.

Now let's see, a polling organization that was started by Mary Cheney and top republican politicos gave a republican candidate good polling numbers over a democrat? Who'd of thunk?

Michelle " I don't have " Nunn, experience that is. Is waiting for her handlers to write a response to this negative press, so be patient, Mike Coles is working on something for her to say in the future maybe.

I can feel the anger tonight from the progressives. They are beginning to sub-consciously are realizing that Nunn and Carter are going to get beat and their dreams are just delusions.

So the liberals hopes and dreams of a lawless president getting a fugly helper governor from Georgia whose gender is questionable are evaporating. What a shame. Elections have consequences.

It appears that the paid trolls for Nunn and Carter disappear when news comes out that is negative about their candidates. This poll was taken before the leaked memo and as the memo clearly stated she had plans on running as the outsider against Kingston and now she can not even run on the memo.

I love seeing the angry left wing retards crying about the memo. Face it, losers, Moochelle None is toast and her "company" supports terrorism.

This poll is right about were it should be. Obama lost by 8 points two years ago and Barnes lost by 10 points in 2010 so Nunn being behind by 9 is just about right.

@EdUktr


Let's tell the truth and tell the whole story of that Huffington Post link, above.  10 pollsters were used in 13 polls.  In 6 of the 13, Michelle Nunn leads David Perdue, who leads Nunn in 6 of the 13 polls. In one poll they are tied. However, one of the 6 polls in which Perdue leads Nunn is the Vox Populi poll, mentioned above, in which Perdue led Nunn by 9 points.  But that poll was out of line with the other polls, and because it, alone, gave Perdue such a wide lead, it skewed the entire poll results more to Perdue's favor in the total of 47% to 44%, with a sample of only 624 people polled. 


Nevertheless, the good news for Nunn is that she is tied with Perdue in 6 each of 12 polls, and tied in the 13th poll.

@td1234 More of that common sense, right?  Or is it you are now clairvoyant? You can "feel" the vibes, right?  Isn't that akin to witchcraft?  What are those backwater baptists gonna say about that?  What would jody say?

Commenting on a person's physical appearance? Making jokes about questioning their gender? What are you? A third grader? ..Or are you just ignorant and homophobic?


Maybe you should step aside and allow a different conservative to field the comments here. One who has greater intellect, self control, who actually might have some meaningful things to say and who isn't motivated by sheer ignorance and hate.

@GMFA He didn't crawl out from under a rock, he was dropped from the back end of a buzzard, one that had feasted on dead skunks all day. He has that unmistakable odor. Unfortunately he has offspring, henry rush, the result of a drunken tryst with a another buzzard.

The big mystery is why "i report...and play with dolls" changed his sockpuppet to 'the line."

Tiny Dog, 

Some of us have lives.

I realize your 'contract' probably includes compensation to protect the wrong wing from the incursion of reality, but the rest of us have s*it to do.

The 'memo' amounts to nothing, except for the blinded cabal who won't vote for anyone without an 'r' next to their name.

We never counted on those votes anyway, so I guess you would call it a 'wash' except I don't think you people do that.

@td1234 I see you didn't get the memo. This is a vox populi poll, the same people that had cantor winning by 10-15%.  You are so willfully ignorant, or so desperate to justify your outlandish predictions, you would cite a necromancer if they said perdue/deal would win. Now that is the definition of a true loser.

@honested @td1234 Yes, we all know that Perdue will win the seat by a 5 to 10 point margin. The memo will now make it closer to 10 than 5. Probably close to the 8 points Obama lost to Romney in Georgia.

@AuntieChrist I do not have to see a poll to use common sense and tell you that more black voters will NOT vote in this years general election than voted for Obama in 08 and 12 and therefore Democrats do not have a chance of winning the seat.

There is no evidence the President has anything but respect for the Constitution.

That a President isn't loved by the greatest threat to the United States in my lifetime (the House republiklan caucus) does not constitute disrespect for the Constitution, on the contrary, it connotes respect for the American People!

@td1234   Common sense says a bumblebee can't fly, and an ant cannot pick up 100 times its body weight. Common sense predictions in politics are just as wrong.  Your problem is you are relying on common sense instead of facing the reality of the degree of discontent permeating the country, and GA is no exception.  If ever an election defied common sense, these midterms will be the exemplar of it.

@AuntieChrist Yes, the discontent for Obama grows larger and larger everyday. What is it in Georgia 35% approval rating? Do you really believe this state that dislikes Obama so much in going to turnout to vote for his proxy (Michelle Nunn)? LOL

@honested Well my neighbor has a Perdue sign in his front yard but the point is I do not have to speak to any because I am not delusional enough to believe blacks will be more enthusiastic and vote in higher numbers for an elitist white woman than they were for the first black President.
