Abrams 50
Kemp 46

614 LVs
+/- 4%

Here's The Poll

Still looking for the actual poll itself, but it's mentioned here.

Worth noting that their Twitter and website haven't been updated in years, and the director of the polling firm (at least when it was last updated) is a former Executive Director for the Democratic Party of Georgia. The organization that commissioned the poll is also ran by former DPG/YDG officers.

Basically, it's probably appropriate to treat this like a Democratic internal.

Why isn't this poll mentioned in 538? Is there some methodological flaw that disqualifies it?

I only found it because I just so happened to Google over the past 24 hours new polls of Georgia, and at the time, the only reference was in a Slate article without linking to the poll. I just so happened to discover the full poll linked on Facebook, so it may be that this poll wasn't published/promoted enough to get visibility.

Are those down ballot races also subject to runoffs?

Yep - every race in Georgia at the state and local level (save for presidential elections, or municipal elections that use multi-seat/top # systems) is subject to a runoff if nobody garners 50% +1.
