Title (Max 100 Characters)
U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston has taken an 11-point lead over David Perdue, six weeks before their Republican runoff for a U.S. Senate seat.
Those are among the results of a SurveyUSA poll taken for WXIA-TV in Atlanta. The pollsters questioned 2,200 Georgians June 3-5.
Among their findings:
Kingston leads Perdue, a former Reebok CEO, by 52 percent to 41 percent in their July 22 runoff. The winner faces Democrat Michelle Nunn and Libertarian Amanda Swafford in November. That question has a 4.9-point margin of error.
Both Kingston and Perdue are likely to win the Senate seat over Nunn and Swafford. Kingston currently leads Nunn, 43 percent to 37 percent; Perdue leads Nunn, 43 percent to 38 percent, the poll says.
And Gov. Nathan Deal, a Republican, also holds a lead over Democratic challenger Jason Carter and Libertarian Andrew Hunt. If the vote happened today, Deal would draw 44 percent, Carter 38 percent and Hunt 7 percent.
The margin of error on the November races is 3.2 points.
Voting on the Kingston-Perdue runoff begins June 30.
