Handel Keeps Surging in GA6

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

We had two new polls yesterday that show how much Karen Handel has surged in the US House race in Georgia. The latest poll from WSB and Landmark Communications shows the race down to a tenth of a percentage point.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA – CD6 RUNOFF (WSB/Landmark)
Jon Ossoff (D) 49.0%
Karen Handel (R) 48.9%

This poll was done June 18th among 500 likely voters. Meanwhile, a new poll from The Trafalgar Group puts Karen Handel up by about 2%.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA – CD6 RUNOFF (Trafalgar)
Karen Handel (R) 50.5%
Jon Ossoff (D) 48.6%

This poll was done June 17-18 among 1100 likely voters. The real counting starts tonight.

One Poll Has Ossoff Up 2%, Another Has Handel up 1% in GA

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

WSB and Landmark Communications’s latest poll in Georgia shows Jon Ossoff with a 2% lead over Karen Handel, one percentage point closer than their last poll.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA – CD6 RUNOFF (WSB/Landmark)
Jon Ossoff (D) 50%
Karen Handel (R) 48%

This poll was done June 15th among 800 likely voters. Meanwhile, yet another polling outfit I have never heard of until now, CSP Polling, is out with a poll claiming it is Karen Handel with a 1% lead.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA – CD6 RUNOFF (CSP)
Karen Handel (R) 49%
Jon Ossoff (D) 48%

This poll was done June 15-17 among 571 likely voters. Interestingly the latest blog post this polling firm has on their website is about how badly they botched their polling in the just completed Virginia gubernatorial primary where they said Tom Periello was going to win by 5% before he ended up losing by double digits. Something to take into account in this latest poll.

Pollster Claims Stewart Leads Gillespie in VA

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Some polling outfit (Change Research) I have never heard of before has released a new poll for the gubernatorial primary races in Virginia and it claims Corey Stewart is now ahead of Ed Gillespie on the Republican side.

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA – GOP PRIMARY (Change Research)
Corey Stewart 42%
Ed Gillespie 41%
Frank Wagner 16%

GOVERNOR – VIRGINIA – DEM PRIMARY (Change Research)
Tom Perriello 54%
Ralph Northam 46%

This poll was done June 8-10 among likely primary voters. Republicans in Virginia might as well just give up trying to win here if they are going to make Corey Stewart the face of the party this year. I guess we will find out tomorrow night.
