Trump Leads Clinton in Georgia by Four Points

New polling from Opinion Savvy shows Republican Donald Trump leading Democrat Hillary Clinton by 4.3 percentage points, just outside the poll’s margin of error of 4.1%. In the Senate race, Republican incumbent Johnny Isakson leads Democrat Jim Barksdale by 12.9 points, but hasn’t yet managed to break the 50% mark needed to avoid a runoff.

Trump has the support of 46.3% of likely voters, followed by Clinton with 42.0%. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has the support of 10.1% of likely voters, including 24.7% of those under age 30. 1.7% remain undecided. In the senate race, Isakson is favored by 47.0% of likely voters, Barksdale stands at 34.1%, and Libertarian candidate Allen Buckley has 5.9% support. 13.1% remain undecided in the Senate race.

Those supporting Trump were asked if they agreed with his belief that Russian president Vladimir Putin was a “strong leader.” 39% strongly agreed and 41% somewhat agreed with Trump, while 8% somewhat disagreed and 2% strongly disagreed. Clinton supporters were asked who should replace her should her current illness force her to drop out of the race. 58.5% thought that the replacement should be Joe Biden, while 28.5% said Bernie Sanders should take over. 4.0% wanted someone else, and 9.0% were undecided.

The poll was taken on September 14th for TV station Fox 5 in Atlanta. You can view the crosstabs here.
