Dem Michelle Nunn still leads Reps in Ga Senate race, according to PPP survey

In the Public Policy Polling survey conducted this week and released today, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn beats all major Republican candidates, although the margin is not statistically significant.

Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn (D-Ga), matches up with Republicans in the following way:

Michelle Nunn vs. Rep. Paul Broun, 42-41

Michelle Nunn vs. Rep. Phil Gingrey, 45-41

Michelle Nunn vs. former Secretary of State Karen Handel, 44-40

Michelle Nunn vs. Rep. Jack Kingston, 44-42

The survey of 640 Georgia voters took place January 24-26, 2014, and it included 38 percent Democrats, 38 percent Republicans, and 24 percent independents.

The respondents were 53 percent female and 47 percent male, which most likely benefited Nunn.

However, the largest group of respondents age-wise was 46-65 years-olds and the smallest – 9 percent, 18-29 years-olds, something that would work against the Democrat.

The candidates are fighting for a U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga) who is retiring at the end of the year.

Republicans are expecting a very competitive primary that could drain them financially, while Nunn is expected to win her primary easily.

Georgia and Kentucky are two traditionally red states where Democrats might be competitive in 2014 for the first time in decades.
