FOX 5/ Opinion Savvy Poll: Trump Gains a Lead; Isakson Close to Fifty-Percent

A poll of 568 registered likely voters conducted in Georgia September 13-14 by Opinion Savvy for FOX asked voters who they would vote for if the election for president and senator were held today. The results were:

Presidential:

  • Trump - 46
  • Clinton - 42
  • Johnson - 10
  • Undecided - 2

Senate:

  • Isakson - 47
  • Barksdale - 34
  • Buckley - 6
  • Undecided - 13

The blended poll of land lines and mobile devices has a margin of error of 4.1%.

FOX 5 Political Analyst Matt Towery: In the last survey conducted for FOX 5 Clinton and Trump were tied. Several weeks later we see Trump picking up momentum. He now has the support of 22 percent of African-American respondents, which would be shocking were it to hold until the election. He also has made gains among the youngest of voters and is slowly gaining more support from voters who say they are Republicans. Trump leads significantly among independent voters and Clinton still has the vast majority of self-identified Democrats voting for her. The two equally split the female vote but Trump leads among men.

As for Isakson, he is just under the 50 percent mark and with 13 percent undecided, he would be the heavy favorite to win. His main weakness is among younger voters including that same 30-44 age group that Trump is losing. Isakson’s ad campaign, aimed at female voters, gives him a large lead among women. But younger voters are less familiar with Isakson and are trending towards Barksdale at the moment.
