Poll shows Kerry leads in Georgia

February 29, 2004

A recent tracking poll shows that with only two days left before Super Tuesday, Senator John Kerry's lead over John Edward has widened in Georgia.

The Zogby International poll questioned 601 people about who they planned to vote for in Tuesday's Democratic primary. The results showed Kerry with 45 percent of the vote and Senator John Edwards with only 26 percent. 19 percent of voters remain undecided. The poll is positive news for Kerry's South Georgia campaign organizers.

"I have been talking a lot and as I have been talking to people in other counties it shows there is a strong backing for Senator Kerry," says Dr. Constance Burkes, Chair of Kerry's Dougherty County campaign.

The same poll conducted earlier in the week put Kerry at 39 percent and Edwards at 23 percent.
