The first poll of Georgia’s gubernatorial race since last week’s primaries has Democrat Jason Carter leading incumbent Republican Gov. Nathan Deal by seven points.
A statewide telephone survey of 750 likely Georgia voters conducted on May 21-22 by Rasmussen Reports found Carter, a state senator from Decatur, with 48 percent support to 41 percent for Deal. Three percent supported another candidate, and 7 percent were undecided.
