Poll shows Kerry with lead in Georgia

February 26, 2004

(Atlanta-AP) -- A poll out today shows Democrat John Kerry holds a double-digit lead over John Edwards in Georgia prior to Tuesday's presidential primary but suggests that lead may be narrowing.

The poll conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV shows Kerry leading Edwards 39 percent to 23 percent. But it also suggests the race may be a close one with 21 percent of those surveyed still undecided.

The poll of 395 voters was conducted Monday and Tuesday by Zogby International. It has a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points.

The poll also shows the Reverend Al Sharpton with nine percent and Representative Dennis Kucinich with one percent. Despite the numbers, the president of the polling firm says Kerry appears to be losing ground fast.

And John Zogby suggests that Edwards will win Georgia. Zogby noted that Kerry led Edwards 49 percent to 19 percent among 126 voters contacted Monday. But the Massachusetts senator dropped to 35 percent among the 269 voters contacted Tuesday while Edwards rose to 25 percent.

Despite Kerry's wide lead, his campaign spokeswoman Holly Armstrong also predicts a close race in Georgia. She tells the Journal-Constitution "With 20 percent still unsure, there is still no reason to suggest this won't be close."
