Poll: Trump ahead considerably in Georgia, less with Gingrich

Following an earlier poll conducted by Landmark/Rosetta showing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in a dead heat in Georgia, a left leaning organization has released a poll indicating Donald Trump has a 7-point lead over Hillary Clinton in the Peach State.

The current presumptive Republican nominee pulls in 45% while Hillary is showing just 38% in a match up in November. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee, pulled in 6% while Green Party candidate Jill Stein showed just 2%.

The Public Policy Polling (PPP) said Wednesday, however, that should Trump choose Newt Gingrich as his running mate, his lead would dwindle to a 5 percentage point lead. The yield may come as surprise with an assumed widespread love of Gingrich.  Interestingly, the same poll showed 36% of Georgians see Gingrich unfavorably.

In terms of sheer favorability, 44% of Georgia voters see Trump favorably while 49% see him unfavorable compared to Clinton’s 33% favorably and 60% unfavorably.

Though unlikely, PPP also polled Trump against Sanders in Georgia, and Trump led by an even greater margin of 46-36 respectively.  Georgia has been a red state in Presidential elections for the last 20 years.

The survey of 724 registered voters was conducted May 27–30 via landline phones and the internet with a margin of error of 3.6 points.

Trump could win GA with a dead skunk on his ticket. No surprise here.

I think it’s going to end up closer than people think.

Other gems from this poll deal with some of the side questions that were asked.:

On whether Hillary Clinton was involved in the death of Vincent Foster, 27% of total said yes, but 50% of Trump supporters said yes,.

On whether the Georgia state flag should incorporate the Confederate battle flag, 31% of total said yes, but 52% of Trump supporters said yes.

On the result of the Civil War, 21% of all respondents wish the South had won, compared to 31% of those with a favorable opinion of Trump.

Vince Foster? Newt Gingrich? Did we step in a time machine? Next you’re gonna tell me that Ken Starr is back in the news.

I was being facetious, but I commend you on the comment nonetheless.

Saw he’s stepping down from the Chancellor position but staying on as a law professor. I’d love to see him explain that logic to the young women who were raped and then intimidated by the University into keeping silent. You know what, he should explain it to their parents, too.

“…explain that logic to the young women who were raped and then intimidated by Hillary (the University) into keeping silent.” I’d like to hear that explanation, too!

Andrew,

Is this not crazy about Hillary?

Poll: 71 percent of Dems think Clinton should keep running even if indicted

71% of Democrats recognize that Hillary Clinton is imminently more qualified to be President than Donald Trump and think that keeping his tiny finger off the trigger is so important that she should continue to run for President despite indictment, loss of limb, uncovering of her underground fight club, etc.

It could also be that 71% of Democrats recognize that Hillary could get sent to Gitmo and still beat Trump in a general

PPP may be left-leaners but they’re damn accurate too. Even so, I’d be very surprised if Johnson/Stein made it to 8 percent combined.

A couple of interesting details from your link:

1) “50% of Trump fans think Hillary Clinton had some involvement in the death of
Vince Foster” Goes with Trump’s birther nonsense and general conspiratorial state of mind of the gop.

2) Trump supporters are disproportionately flaggers. Sonny would approve.

He can’t pick Newt. There is no way to make that sign look good. “Trump/Newt” looks stupid. But it can’t say “Trump/Gingrich” either. ‘Gingrich’ would have to be so small to not be longer than ‘Trump’ that it would look embarrassing. Perhaps Trump will re-brand himself as ‘Donald’. But ‘Donald/Newt’ is really weird. And ‘Donald/Gingrich’ is just confusing. Trump needs someone with a very short name. Lets see, 5 letters or less. Someone who may be able to help with the women demographic. Someone who can bring some experience to the ticket. And some name recognition. Someone with no scruples.… Read more »

He could make Ivanka his running mate. Trump/Trump. That’s like, double the Trump.

“My running mate is so hot. An absolute fox. I’d sleep with her if she wasn’t my running mate… and, I guess, my daughter.”

“Have you seen Julian Castro? He doesn’t have the legs and the *motions toward chest* you know, gravitas, to be Vice President.”

I’m going to assume Christie has the VP slot locked up. If not, I predict terrible traffic jams around Trump Plaza in Jersey City.

Too bad Pat Paulsen died. His time has finally arrived.
