So says Rasmussen:

Following the primaries on Tuesday, and regardless of which Republican wins the run-off, Democrat Roy Barnes finds himself in a close race as he seeks to reclaim the title of Governor.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that Barnes earns 44% of the vote if Karen Handel is the Republican nominee and 43% if Nathan Deal is his opponent.

Handel earns 45% of the vote against Barnes while Deal picks up 49%. Handel, the former Secretary of State, and Deal, a former Congressman, are headed for an August 10 runoff. Deal and Handel came from behind to win their slots in the run-off with key endorsements from New Gingrich and Sarah Palin respectively.

No word about which of the two Republicans have more support weeks away from the Aug. 10 runoff, however.
