Rasmussen: Oxendine still leads polls

Rasmussen reports that John Oxendine still leads candidates battling to become the GOP's gubernatorial nominee. According a telephone survey conducted by the pollster, 27 percent of likely Republican primary voters favor the state insurance commissioner.

The Ox's© lead, however, has shrunk by four points — and the number of undecided voters has grown. Rasmussen says many likely voters still haven't formed an opinion about the candidates — which isn't surprising for a contest that's still 10 months away.

Here's how the other pachyderms stack up:

Twelve percent (12%) prefer Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, while nine percent (9%) like Congressman Nathan Deal. Handel and Deal were tied at 13% each in the previous survey.

Rounding out the list is State Senator Eric Johnson, State Representative Austin Scott and conservative businessman Ray McBerry, each with three percent (3%) support among primary voters.

Seven percent (7%) favor some other candidate, and 35% are not sure. The number of undecided voters climbed four points from two months ago, suggesting that the race is far from decided.

That "other candidate" favored by seven percent of poll respondents could easily be a Libertarian. Pray to God it's not this guy. Rasmussen will release details on the Democratic gubernatorial candidates tomorrow.
