What polling tells us about Georgia’s 6th district

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s poll showed Democrat Jon Ossoff leading Republican Karen Handel as of June 9. It also reveals a great deal more about what is important to voters in the 6th district and what the most expensive congressional campaign in U.S. history has been like for them.

Methodology: The poll was conducted June 5-8 by Abt Associates. The company called 1000 registered voters in the 6th district in order to get a sample of 745 likely voters. Of those 60 percent were reached on cell phones. The questions were asked by live interviewers, not an automated system.
