Article.

Deal (R)- 41%
Carter (D)- 37%
Hunt (L)- 9%
Unsure- 13%

This seems really junky for being a SUSA.

The actual survey page has it at 41-37, Deal.

Anytime a Libertarian/Green/No-Name Independent is shown getting >5%, it's almost always a junk poll.

Why didn't they ask about the Senate general election? Dumbs.

Indeed it does - Georgia Tip Sheet screwed it up (I think they read the final column of the poll, which was for the South & East sections of GA and showed 41-34).

Anytime a Libertarian/Green/No-Name Independent is shown getting >5%, it's almost always a junk poll.

The 9% is wacky, but a Libertarian at 5% or so in Georgia is not. The 2010 nominee got 4%; you could very well have more disgruntled Republicans who rebel against a corrupt, "moderate" incumbent this cycle than we saw in 2010 when there was an open seat.

This is the second poll to show some oddities in the Dem Sen race; I just can't buy that Dr. Rad is coming in third to Steen Miles. Also, the regional numbers for Gov - particularly in NW GA - seem to be off (though I hope not); even if 2/3 of what I deem excess Libertarians in that poll go to Deal + 2/3 of undecideds, you end up with only 58-38 Deal. The 2010 result was something like 72-23.

Why is no one entering these polls into the database? The last GA one added was in late December. Sad

Rule of thumb. DON'T include 3rd party candidate names among the selections. Make people volunteer that name. It's much more accurate unless you get a mega-serioust indie running like (e.g.) Cutler in ME.
