  •  GA Gov PPP (3+ / 0-)
    Nathan Deal's political standing has improved substantially since February, and he now looks like a more solid favorite for reelection. Deal's approval rating stands at a 44/32 spread. That +12 net approval is a 17 point improvement from February when just 36% of voters gave him good marks to 41% who disapproved. His numbers have improved with voters across the party spectrum, but particularly with independents who have gone from disapproving of him 31/43 to approving 51/28.

    Deal has substantial leads over three different potential Democratic challengers we tested against him. He's up 13 points on Stacey Abrams at 47/34, 15 on Jason Carter at 48/33, and 20 on Scott Holcomb at 48/28. Carter is the only one out of this trio who we'd tested on a previous poll- in February he trailed Deal by only 8, so this represents a 7 point improvement for the Governor
