Big swings in both races (Nunn going from -9 to -3,Carter going from -9 to +1).

Any reason for it,or just terrible polling/outliers?

This poll has a D+3 sample, their previous was R+2.

That might explain it.

SurveyUSA also mentions that the summer break might have played a role in between:

I still don't think Carter will win a runoff he can't get to 50% in November.  But the Dems have a very significant GOTV effort on the ground in the state and if he is at 48 or 49 percent in the polling going into Election Day, that might be enough to knock him over the line.  Not likely, but still possible.

Why is the sample D+3?

The typical bouncing around in the polls.

I guess in the previous poll, Republican voters told SUSA they are more motivated to vote in November, producing an R sample.

And now Democrats say they are more motivated in GA.

Whoever entered the poll into the database flipped the numbers around.

Looks like the 11alive-people got the numbers wrong and put Carter+1 in their article.

The SUSA crosstabs show Deal+1, so the database entry is correct.
