Ossoff Expands His Lead in Georgia Special Election


March 20, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

With just less than 30 days until the special election to replace former Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), a new Clout Research poll finds that Jon Ossoff (D) is greatly solidifying his base of support and now leads the special election field with 41%.

Karen Handel (R) now only has a marginal edge over Bob Gray (R), as both effectively tie at 16%.

1. We really need to get Ossoff above 50% to avoid a runoff.

No offense to the other Dems in the race but they should withdraw to help solidify support for Ossoff.

4. Worth noting this is a Republican polling outfit

Link to poll: http://cloutpolitical.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/31/2017/03/GA-CD-6-Topline-Report-3.17.2017.pdf

Some numbers: 42% R, 30% I, 91% white, 91% non-union, 45% over 65. The sample is old, white, conservative and Republican.

6. The sample should be fairly good news

The sample is pretty much an electorate that would be expected to elect a Republican, so Ossoff leading is a good sign for him, imho. Clout Research used an LV screen, but it doesn't say who they considered a likely voter. By their sample, I'd say they are using the usual screens of voting history, etc, which could be problematic given the anger and engagement Dems are showing.

7. I think we've got a winner. His TV ads are constant and great.

I'm sure he appreciates the support given but pls don't stop now, help him to give 'em hell.

9. I'm in this district

And we've gotten canvassed. There are more Ossoff signs in yards than Trump and Hillary combined had. His commercials air constantly. There is a real feeling of possibility.

It would be so sweet for a dem to win quack Price's seat.
