A poll of next year’s U.S. Senate race in Georgia, conducted for Channel 2 Action News, indicates that Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle shouldn’t be left out of any calculations when it comes to the Republican field.
The survey by Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone positions potential candidates thusly:
“There is a great deal of volatility in the Republican field,” said Mark Rountree, President of Landmark Communications. “If Lt. Governor Cagle decides to run he would initially lead the pack because he has statewide name recognition. However we also found that, based on our poll question regarding of his job approval, voters don’t know as much about him beyond name recognition. That’s normal for a down ticket elected official.”
One thing to note: You’ll see that Price is placed further down in the pecking order in this poll. But in the crosstabs, you’ll also see that the Roswell congressman rockets up to first place among metro Atlanta voters.
Also: If people are going to poll Cagle, perhaps it might also be time to start including Karen Handel’s name.
