ATLANTA, Georgia: Survey USA, a public opinion polls and private market research firm, under contract with a local news station in Georgia surveyed 899 registered voters about all the statewide races on the ballot in November; of these, 599 were deemed to be likely voters. The polling data shows Republicans maintaining double-digit leads in all contests, including the one for state attorney general. More importantly, however, the numbers also point out that Olens garnered the support of 43% of those voters who identified themselves as independents; Hodges secured 25% followed closely with 21% by Libertarian candidate, Don Smart. It should be noted, however, that Survey USA does not use live call center employees, but rather an automated system in which taped questions are asked via a professional announcer; the respondent is then invited to press a button on their phone or record a message indicating their selections.
