Landmark/Rosetta Stone Releases Final Sunday Poll of Georgia Voters for President, Senate
Trump Leads 49-46-3%, Isakson 52-41-4%
(Atlanta)–Landmark/Rosetta Stone released their final jointly released poll of Georgia’s presidential and senate elections Monday. The poll of 1,200 likely Georgia voters was conducted Sunday and concludes that Donald Trump is leading Hillary Clinton and Libertarian Gary Johnson among likely voters in Georgia by a margin of 49% to 46% to 3%.
Senator Johnny Isakson is leading Democrat Jim Barksdale by a margin of 52%-41%, with Libertarian Allen Buckley winning 4% and 3% undecided.
“The share of voters who say they will vote for a Libertarian candidate has declined over the final days of the election, with some of those voters choosing between the candidates with a realistic chance to win. Both Trump and Senator Isakson will benefit from that,” said Mark Rountree, President of Landmark Communications, Inc. “Once the remaining few undecided voters make their choice, Trump will have a shot of crossing the 50% mark in Georgia, and barring major last minute changes, Senator Isakson should win without a runoff.”
“Self described independent voters in Georgia have been volatile, but appear to be moving toward Trump in the closing days of the election,” said John Garst, President of Rosetta Stone Communications. “Independent voters are giving Trump 50% of their vote, with 38% to Hillary Clinton.”
Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone Communications have conducted and jointly released a series of polls of Georgia voters throughout the 2016 election cycle. Some of the surveys were conducted exclusively for WSBTV Channel 2 News in Atlanta, while others were independently conducted by the firms themselves.
Landmark Communications, Inc. and Rosetta Stone Communications, Inc., jointly conducted a public opinion survey of likely Georgia voters on November 6, 2016 utilizing mixed methodology: both telephone calls with IVR technology (recorded calls) and online digital data collection were used.
1200 interviews were conducted, including utilizing both telephone interviews and online digital surveys. The overall margin of error of the poll is plus or minus 2.8%.
Respondents were not included in the final report if they indicated they may not vote, or if they are less than 18 years of age. Respondents who did not complete all questions of the survey were also not included in the final report.
To be consistent with previous and projected voter turnout in a Georgia general election, the results were weighted by age, gender and race. The interview sample was drawn from Landmark’s own statewide voter database, originally sourced from the Office of Georgia Secretary of State.
