That's unfortunate.  I figured he'd be ahead, but not by that much.

I'm not much surprised that he is ahead, but I am surprised he is ahead by that much.  Tongue

Perdue continues to surprise everyone.

Taylor is competent; Cox is not.

Perdue has improved his standing by a good 10% in JA in SUSA's rankings in the last six months, so a larger lead like this does not surprise me, frankly.

If anything, it's just the opposite.

IIRC, Strategic is one of the few polling firms that acually favour the GOP, just as a reminder...but this wasn't really expected to be all that competitive to begin with, was it?

True.  Of course, they were started and are headquartered in Georgia (especially when they used to work only for Rep. campaigns).  One would hope they would understand the state better than others.

Or maybe I should just go with Scoonie's statement and close my mind:

FYI, Strategic Vision is a partisan GOP pollster.

It doesn't look too promising for Ralph Reed, unsurprisingly, though he is still likely to win his party's nomination for Lt. Governor:

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Ralph Reed, a Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor? (Republicans only)

Favorable 38%
Unfavorable 42%
Undecided 20%

If the Republican primary for Lieutenant Governor was held today, whom would you vote for Ralph Reed or Casey Cagle? (Republicans only)

Ralph Reed 40%
Casey Cagle 34%
Undecided 26%

OK, correction time. I said he **wanted** to run for President and that his political savvy made him noteworthy in that regard. That was also before the Abramoff thing really hit, which is particularly bad for Mr. Reed.

It's fine, but trust me, I'm not hoping or counting on Reed for much of anything.

I am, however, extremely impressed by his political IQ. I think he's one of the top strategists in the country. But Karl Rove isn't going to be President, either.

Purdue hasn't done anything to make himself unpopular as Barnes did, plus the Democrats are making fools of themselves by their strident opposition to picture ID cards for voters.  The Dems concerns aren't entirely unfounded, but for the average middle of the road voter, it is a sensible protection against voter fraud.

Nothing foolish about it. Required picture ID cards will disenfranchise hundreds, maybe thousands.

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

Frankly, anyone not able to acquire a free picture ID card, either because of lack of qualification or lack of competence, is someone who needs to be disenfranchised.
