Yeah but he hasn't generated any negative press recently: "no news is good news"

I'd be interested in seeing him matched against John Barrow.

Deal has recently gotten some bad press, at least the center left groups are hounding him good. However, I don't see any good Democrat besides Barrow to run against Deal. Reed would be good, but he has a healthy relationship with Deal and wouldn't want to loose that, plus he knows his chances are better in 2018. Abrams is focused on the House and most likely won't run and the others don't have the name recognition outside of the Eastern Metro, certainly not Holcomb, maybe Carter because of the legacy of his family. 

Now Deal does face a primary opponent, Mayor Pennington of Dalton, who is trying to out flake Deal on the right, he has the network and money to give it a go. Could hurt Deal some what but most likely would loose the nomination.

44% is the break-even position for winning re-election. Deal may be able to get the "right" endorsements and get the big-money campaign contributions behind him and slip by. Unless a scandal breaks to his detriment, proves an incompetent campaigner, or faces an unsually strong opponent he will likely slip by.

Alright so Deal has been getting nothing but bad press recently which is turning into a war between the Governor and the largest paper in GA, the AJC. On top of that he is now facing someone from his administration, School Superintendent John Barge is not holding any punches against the Governor. Although I think the Governor still might win, it will be a harder push than  before.
