New Poll Show Barrow leading Anderson for GA-12

In a poll conducted by House Majority PAC shows Incumbent Congressman John Barrow (D-Augusta) leading challenger Lee Anderson (R-Grovetown)by a margin of 48% to 45%, according to a new House Majority PAC poll.

The poll was conducted October 8-10 by the Benenson Strategy Group of 400 likely GA-12 voters and has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.

A poll conducted back in September conducted by McLaughlin & Associates show Anderson at 44% to Barrow 43%.

One thing is certain, this race will be close & it will not be the runaway some have predicted for Lee Anderson due to redistricting which made the 12th CD a lean republican district. I predicted last month that Barrow would survive efforts by the GOP to oust him from his congressional seat. Barrow, a Conservative Democrat is running a campaign showing his Independence from the more liberal National Democratic Party. It appears that strategy is working & another factor that could help Barrow is the fact his challenger Lee Anderson has turned down every opportunity to debate Barrow. Anderson's strategy to duck Barrow & instead rely on the R next to his name in hopes of capturing the 12th Congressional District, in my opinion isn't going to cut it.

Barrow has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Business & Veterans of Foreign Wars.
