IA poll: Barnes could threaten the GOP streak

Insider Advantage is out this morning with a statewide poll showing former Gov. Roy Barnes could seriously threaten Republican intentions to continue their rule over the state Capitol.

The survey posits three match-ups against Republicans. In only one, against Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, does the former democratic governor trail 39% to 35%.

Against John Oxendine, he leads 38% to 33%.

Against Karen Handel he leads 34% to 29%.

The March 17 poll queried 550 Georgia registered voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.

For Casey Cagle, that not a big lead for a republican in a state that is so called solid reoublican. Cagle will have problems against Barnes. He will have to defend the last 8 years of Sonny Perdue & his own work as Lt. Governor & the work of the GOP led Legislature.
