A new survey, courtesy of Vox Populi Polling, shows David Perdue and Nathan deal pulling ahead in their respective races, with just days to go until Election Day. The poll shows Perdue leading Michelle Nunn 48-43 percent, constituting an edge that falls outside the margin of error. Libertarian Amanda Swafford’s support has dipped to just 3 percent, while the remaining 6 percent of respondents stated they were undecided. Nathan Deal also had support from 48 percent of respondents, while his Democratic foe, Jason Carter, clocked in at 42 percent. The Libertarian candidate in that race, Andrew Hunt, also netted 3 percent support while 7 percent were undecided. Two interesting tidbits from the results of both races – Perdue and Deal each lead among women. Deal draws 46 percent support from women surveyed, to Carter’s 42. Perdue, meanwhile, had a slightly smaller edge over Nunn, 45-43 percent. Both GOPers also lead with independents, Deal by a 51-38 percent margin and Perdue 51-41 percent. Some 602 Georgia voters were surveyed in the poll, including those who voted in 2010 or 2012, and newly registered voters since the latter. It has a 4 percent margin of error and was conducted on October 28.
