According to a newly released Tulchin Research survey for the Carolyn Bourdeaux campaign (referred to as “mid-August”; 400 GA-7 likely voters), the new Democratic nominee has jumped out to a slight 46-44% lead over four-term Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Lawrenceville). The result could be related to Ms. Bourdeaux, a former staff director for the state Senate Budget Committee, getting a bump from winning the late July run-off election where she slipped past chain business owner David Kim to advance into the general election.
The 7th is a reliable Republican district, so it will be important to analyze further data in order to determine whether this poll is an anomaly. GA-7 is another district that previously has not been competitive, which now appears coming into play.
