Insider Advantage/Majority Opinion Research Poll: John Oxendine Maintains Double Digit Lead Over Closest Opponent

Republican candidate for Governor, John Oxendine, continues to maintain frontrunner status with the newest independent poll released by Insider Advantage/Majority Opinion Research for WSB TV. The results of this statewide poll, on the eve of the Georgia Republican Party State Convention when all Republican leaders and activists are focused on who will be the Republican nominee for Governor, confirm that John Oxendine maintains his frontrunner status in the campaign.

John Oxendine: 21.3%
Nathan Deal: 10.5%
Karen Handel: 9.3%
Eric Johnson: 3.2%
Austin Scott: 1.8%
Other: 4%
Undecided: 49.9%

Immediate analysis demonstrates that John Oxendine maintains a 2-to-1 lead over his closest opponent and still leads his closest two opponents even when their totals are combined.

Team Oxendine believes additional analysis will demonstrate John's numbers are consistent throughout the state, demonstrating he is a candidate with genuine and deep statewide appeal. We believe a deeper analysis will also reveal the other candidates are regional candidates.

While we have great respect for our opponents, we maintain that John Oxendine has the necessary statewide name ID to mount a winning campaign against the Democrats in the general election. Our party cannot afford to take the general election in 2010 for granted. John Oxendine continues to demonstrate he is the strongest candidate for the Georgia Republican Party in the 2010 general election for Governor.

"It is very humbling to see these numbers and I appreciate the vote of confidence from my fellow Georgians. It strengthens my resolve to campaign twice as hard and take absolutely nothing for granted. I look forward to talking to Georgians about The Contract with Georgia in the days and weeks ahead," said John Oxendine.
