Poll: Georgians largely undecided about presidential race

A large portion of likely Georgia voters are undecided about who they would vote for in an election between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

Nearly 1 in 5 voters said they have not made up their minds, according to an exclusive Channel 2 poll conducted by Landmark/RosettaStone.

The poll, conducted on May 5, also shows more than a third of independent voters have not made up their minds about a candidate.

The poll shows early voters are essentially split between the two candidates with Trump earning 42 percent and Clinton receiving 41 percent.


Strategists tell Channel 2 political reporter Lori Geary that they aren't surprised.

"I think Hillary Clinton has a chance to win Georgia if she is willing to invest here and put people in the state," Democratic strategist Billy Linville said.

Clinton is getting more independent voters than Trump but almost 40 percent remain undecided. She also leads among women by 5 percent. Trump leads men by 6 percent but he has a double digit lead among voters over age 65.

Republican strategist and former Gov. Deal chief of staff Brian Robinson told Geary, "We should be winning this election in Georgia and across the country. Trump gives us the least best shot of winning this November, I will acknowledge that."

Clinton won the Georgia Primary on March 1 in a landslide over Bernie Sanders with 71 percent of the vote. Trump beat out a long list of Republican candidates with 39 percent of the vote.
