Democrat Roy Barnes trails three of his top four Republican opponents for the governorship of Georgia again this month. Barnes’ rival for the Democratic nomination, Thurbert Baker, runs a distant second to all the GOP hopefuls.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Georgia finds Congressman Nathan Deal still running slightly stronger than the other Republicans. Deal earns 47% support to Barnes’ 40%, virtually identical to his 46% to 39% lead a month ago. Against Baker, Deal posts a 47% to 30% lead.

State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine and Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel edge Barnes by nearly identical margins – 43% to 39% and 42% to 39% respectively.

In April, both contests were virtual ties – Oxendine leading Barnes 45% to 43%, Handel besting the former Democratic governor 42% to 41%.



Against Baker, Georgia’s attorney general, Oxendine holds a 50% to 29% lead. Handel runs ahead of Baker by 11 points – 43% to 32%.

Barnes continues to lead just one of the top GOP hopefuls. He picks up 42% to State Senate President Eric Johnson’s 38%, marking virtually no change from a month ago. Johnson leads Baker 42% to 30%.

Barnes ran strongest against all the Republicans in March but has been unable to rise above the low 40s in any of the match-ups. Both parties pick their nominees in July 20 primaries.


What happened for Barnes to all of a sudden drop being in a tie with most of the GOP candidates to now be trailing by 4% to Oxendine to as much as 7% to Nathan Deal? Hmmmmmm.........

And its hard for me to believe that Nathan Deal is getting 47% of the vote with all of his ethical problems, while if you look at IA Poll, it shows him trailing Oxendine & barely inching ahead of Karen Handel. Its still early!

And why isn't Rasmussen polling Gen. Poythress against the GOP candidates? Or DuBose Porter?
