Daniel….. Georgia Governor: Former Governor Roy Barnes (D-GA) in a TOSS-UP Race against Oxendine, Handel; Surprisingly former U. S. Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA) leads Barnes by 7 Points …..

Hello Folks!

Former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes (D-GA) is in a competitive TOSS-UP Race against State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine (R-GA) and former Secretary of State Karen Handel (R-GA) according to a new Survey in the Peach State. However (and this is surprising) former U. S. Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA) who resigned in Mid-March to run full time for Governor leads Barnes by 7 Points.

Analysis:

I’m not entirely surprised about these Results.

Barnes is a former Governor in this State and has very strong Name ID.
Barnes could win this under the right circumstances EVEN in a bad Democratic Year.

Daniel G.

Well, Well, Well….. Daniel……..

  1. Daniel G., Barnes is using the same trick that Bill Clinton used back in 1982 when he won the Arkansas governorship by admitting to the voters that he made serious misjudgements in his 1st term and would listen to the people whenever they’re needed.

    I’m going out on a limb and say the following:
    1. Barnes crushes the competition in the Democratic primary with 65 percent.

    2. The Georgia GOP will still have a NASTY primary between Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine (R), former Secretary of State Karen Handel (R), and former US Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA), with a runoff looking more and more likely on the GOP side if neither candidate gets to 50 percent.

    3. A runoff on the GOP primary for governor will cause more bad news for the incumbent party in Atlanta as either of the 2 frontrunners waste their precious resources in nasty attack TV ads, while Barnes criss-crosses the entire state with a positive message of cleaning the mess in Atlanta.
