Georgia Governor

Perdue-Cox Getting Closer

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue (R) is facing stiff competition from Secretary of State Cathy Cox (D) in his effort to be re-elected. At the same time, Perdue has opened a 15-point lead over another Democrat who wants his job. Perdue now leads Cox by just six percentage points, 48% to 42%. That's just a bit tighter than last month's 49% to 41% lead. Perdue has more breathing room against Taylor as he leads in that match-up 51% to 36%. Those figures reflect a five point decline in support for Taylor since last month. Two months ago, Perdue led both Democrats by 20 points. He also held a double digit lead against both Democrats in January.
