Heading into tomorrow’s Georgia primary, Fox5 Atlanta sponsored a late poll (5/15-16; 522 GA likely Democratic primary voters; 515 GA likely Republican primary voters) that finds the Republicans headed toward a run-off while the May 22nd Democratic primary looks to produce an outright winner.
According to the survey results, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle leads the Republican contingent with 31% as compared to Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s 20%, and state Sen. Hunter Hill (R-Atlanta) at 14% with two others following. Since it appears no candidate will capture a majority of tomorrow’s vote, the top two Republican finishers will advance to a July 24th run-off election.
For the Democrats, former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams enjoys a commanding 58-19% lead over ex-state Rep. Stacey Evans. But, Survey USA (5/10-15; 475 GA likely Democratic primary voters; 558 GA likely Republican primary voters) finds her advantage to be less dominating, 43-24%, while the GOP results are very similar to the Fox5 data: Cagle leading Kemp and Hill, 35-17-10%, respectively.
