According to a new survey conducted by the Hicks Evaluation Group (HEG) and the Truman National Security Project last weekend, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal (R) is tied with state Sen. Jason Carter (D)in the gubernatorial race, and Republican David Perdue is ahead of Michelle Nunn (D) in the election for the U.S. Senate. The poll included 788 likely general election voters and took place August 8-10, 2014.
The governor’s race seems to be a tossup with Carter at 45.4 percent of support and Deal at 45.3. The Senate race, however, is definitely tipping towards the Republicans with Perdue leading 47.6 to Nunn’s 41.5 percent. The margin of error is +/- 3.48 percent.
