New Poll Numbers for CD-6

Released today, new CD-6 poll numbers, commissioned by ZPolitics and gathered by Clout Research, show former Secretary of State Karen Handel leading Republicans with 25%. First term Roswell City Councilor Bob Gray trails behind at 11%. The two day survey polled 694 respondents.

Democrat Jon Ossoff has an overall lead of 32%. However, Democrat hopefuls shouldn’t pay too much attention to those aspiring to turn the seat Blue. With 58% of survey respondents having a favorable opinion of President Trump to only 42% responding unfavorably, the likely run-off makes it improbable that a Democratic challenger will upset the long-held GOP seat.

“Democrats are much more settled in their decision about this race,” Clout pollster Fritz Wenzel said, adding that 69 percent of Democrats are solid in their support of Ossoff. “While Ossoff may win the primary, it is highly unlikely he would win the runoff election.”

But while 45% of GOP voters are “somewhat firm” in their candidate of choice, 26% are uncommitted. Which means this is still anyone’s race. Former State Senator Judson Hill has been campaigning long and hard, vying for the seat since last November. But he currently sits in fourth place when those surveyed made their first pick, moving to fifth place in the category of “Second Choice”, trailing “Someone Else” by almost two points.

A week in the real world is a life time in politics and we have 8 lifetimes to go until we reach the proverbial finish line.

Should be noted that Ossoff is the only democrat they polled. Question might as well have been do you want these 5 Republicans or this Democrat. Of course every Democrat wants a democrat.

Based on the data they gave, the democrats are not “much more settled” in their support behind Ossoff, just on there support for a democrat-which there are several more Ossoff will need to distinguish himself from.

I can’t imagine what is going through a voters mind when they are trying to shift through 18 candidates name.

Ask the full 18 names and see people trend further to the more familiar candidates like Handel or Hill. I’ll source races like SC 2014 Senate Race where too packed of a field made it impossible for Grahams challengers to distinguish themselves and he won in a landslide without a runoff.

Not sure I’ve ever seen “Very Conservative” and “Libertarian” co-mingled as a single “philosophy” before.

Conservatism as a philosophy has mostly been abandoned. Maybe they are trying to save it by attaching it to libertarianism?

Reagan linked the two over 40 years ago.
