A new poll for the Georgia 6th congressional district special election still shows Democrat Jon Ossoff well short of the 50% threshold he would need to avoid a run-off with the second place finisher. As you can see from the chart below, the RRH Elections survey conducted between the 5th and 10th of April puts Ossoff at 39% and the total GOP vote at 48%, with 7% Others, and 6% Undecided.
If Republican Karen Handel holds on to the number two spot in a run-off with Ossoff, that could be trouble for the Democrat.
Turn-out and enthusiasm are everything in a special election, so Ossoff might make it to 50% on the first go through.
I’d nervous about that.
Election Day is April 18th, with the run-off June 20th if needed.
