(Atlanta-AP) -- A new survey shows that the majority of Georgians plan to vote for President Bush next year, though their approval of the president's handling of the economy has slipped.

The survey also shows that General Wesley Clark leads the field of nine candidates among Democratic voters. Coming a year before the next presidential election, the poll found that 51.8 percent of those surveyed would vote for Bush compared to 38.6 percent who say they would vote for a Democrat.

Three-point-two percent say they would vote for someone else and 6.4 percent said they were not sure how they would vote. The survey polled 501 likely Georgia voters on the Bush question with a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

Surveyors questioned 244 likely Democratic voters on the question of the Democratic Party nomination, which had a sampling error margin of 6.4  percent.

The poll was conducted on October 15th and 16th by Zogby International and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
