SHOCK POLL: Clinton Leads Trump and Cruz in...Georgia!

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) with Hillary Clinton
I had to do a double-take when I saw this new poll showing a Hillary Clinton double takedown of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in Georgia!

But oh yes...it's real:
Lake Research Partners (LRP) recently conducted a telephone survey of likely November general election voters in Georgia to understand the political dynamics in the state and gauge the competitiveness of the presidential race. The results of the survey show the promising nature of Georgia as the next emerging swing state in the South, following North Carolina and Virginia.

Currently, the race for president is very competitive, with Hillary Clinton leading both potential opponents, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Former President Bill Clinton is an asset in Georgia as voters overall and independents like him. Voters are also open to a progressive economic agenda and are far more likely to support a candidate who runs on such a platform. 
Actually, I'd say it's somewhat competitive in one matchup and barely competitive in the other:


As a reminder, the last time that Georgia went blue (barely) was 1992...when a different Clinton was at the top of a presidential ticket. But with Hillary matched up against one of these GOP bozos, we might just be in business there once again.

It's just one early poll, of course, but right now Georgia kinda looks like a sweet electoral peach that'll be ripe for the picking this November!

  1. I'm predicting an "escalating" effect as the Right gets more and more desperate as we approach the election. Everything they say will just make it worse.

  2. Georgia has been on the cusp, if the DNC put some money and talent there, it's very takable. they'd fight back though they are sore losers, maybe not as sore as the berniebots, no one is that sore at losing, but very close.

    By the way I am lifetime banned at kos, and I got insulted too, very sore losers:

    Here is what I got, they have to ban me, and all my fault, and banned twice, for not asking for uprates and for wasting their time.


    Anna, we have to ban you now. Not for the one measly flag you got today. But that you summoned people today to uprate your insult: http://www.dailykos.com/comments/1514627/60947436#comment_60947436 to Lamont Cranston here: http://www.dailykos.com/comments/1514674/60947019#comment_60947019. You encouraged people to violate one of our rules about uprating insults. All so you could carry on your modus operandi of creating contention at the site. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. I am also banning you because of bringing petty problems to the overworked Help Desk. We have serious issues to resolve and you are wasting our time by forcing us to click on your numerous complaints and links therein. You have made a lot of enemies at Daily Kos. That is YOUR problem. Why do you think we notified you that you're skating on thin ice? It's not others. It's you. Posting our private conversations with you online is narcisstic. If you continue to contact the Help Desk we will ban your email address so that you can't contact us any longer. We don't have to put up with your bad behavior. You had your chance.

  3. Off topic, but I see in your twitter feed something about Bernie's surrogate at his Washington Square speech last night referring to Hillary as a Democratic corporate whore. Now this guy, Paul Song is supposedly married to Lisa Ling, the television journalist. Wasn't it President Clinton who went to North Korea to free her sister from a prison there several years back? So President Clinton goes over to free this guy's sister-in-law from a North Korean prison and he uses this language to describe democrats and Hillary?? I don't get it. And Bernie has said nothing about it, of course. I guess the guy has since apologized for the comment but gheesh. I think many Dems fought hard to get the ACA enacted but now it's referred to the status quo. Go figure.

    1. Pretty much everything campaign-related is on topic on any post around here, especially if I share it on social media. I'm just losing track of Bernie's awful surrogates and very ready for this primary to be OVER!
