No. The people who make up the ingredients of Abrams's secret sauce won't be polled.  Republicans are going to be mortified on Election Night when Abrams is leading and Fulton and DeKalb haven't even fully reported yet. Tongue

Toss-up, but I doubt she’ll crack 50% in November.

Other races like ME, and Iowa and NV needs to be polled aside from FL and GA

It's not like we get many GA polls to begin with.

The favorables (Kemp-40/32, Abrams-34/21) and the high undecided vote (10 percent) indicate a rather fluid situation here.  I think Abrams could have the advantage to come out ahead on Election Day, but I remain skeptical that she can break 50+1.

Jason Carter 2.0, obviously. /s

This is a tossup and could basically go either way, and if Abrams wins, she'll almost certainly get 50% on election night.

At this point I’m predicting 51-47-2 Abrams

This could be considered encouraging for Abrams when you look at the crosstabs:

Black voters are more undecided than white voters, younger voters are more undecided than older ones, Dems are more undecided than Republicans.

It does make sense to think that Abrams could outperform polls if they are using an ordinary midterm LV model, because that is clearly not the focus of her campaign. It has the potential to be like Obama Iowa Caucuses '08 where most polls (except Selzer) had Obama down because of their turnout model.

Abrams winning independents 45/30.
Her favorability among independents is 48/11.
Kemp's is 26/41.
Trump's approval among them is 25/63.

Abrams needs these margins to hold.

That sounds like something Trump supporters were saying before the election lol

Summer polls tend to favor Dems, we will see polls continue to tighten as Dems resurrect the 279 blue wall, and Jealous will make a comeback

Obviously Abrams and Kemp will both get at least 45%. My guess is they stay knotted up like this for a while, maybe even the entire race, but Abrams' biggest obstacle remains the fact that she needs a majority rather than a plurality. The fact that Georgia "undecideds" always seem to break Republican doesn't help matters either (shout out to Adam Griffin if he wants to go on a rant about this. Tongue)

I am keeping it as a lean R. I think it'll be much closer than typical elections, but I think Kemp seeks out a victory.

Just wondering.  Will women out vote men by 10% in this gubernatorial race?

Maybe it's just me but if Abrams is getting 50% she should be ahead of Kemp in the polls. A tie portends a runoff.

Don't get me started on the suburbrons!

Anyway, this poll looks like what you'd expect with a couple of months remaining. GA Democrats who are somewhat competitive tend to have two periods where they peak/might lead in polling - one around the time school starts back and one a few weeks before the election (right before the undecideds start sticking the knife in). Right now, we're smack in the middle of those two periods. Most decent polls tend to account for new voters in their methodologies but if the share of the electorate that is usually first-time/irregular voters (10-15%) ends up being substantially higher, then it obviously wouldn't be reflective. As-is, though, this poll looks pretty average for Democrats in comparison to recent past cycles.

This sample is whiter than the actual electorate will be in November and also doesn’t have enough infrequent and non-voters (the type of voter Team Abrams is going after hard).
