A short one but a sweet one and I normally don't like doing two diaries on the same race in the same day but it's Friday and I had to share the good news:

A new poll in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race shows Republican candidate David Perdue is slipping further behind Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn.

The Landmark Communications poll conducted exclusively for WSB-TV asked active Georgia voters who they would choose if the election were held today.

Nunn received 47 percent of the vote and Perdue received 40 percent. Libertarian candidate Amanda Swafford received 3 percent and 10 percent of respondents remain undecided.

“David Perdue being behind Michelle Nunn is surprising,” Channel 2 political analyst Bill Crane said.

“There’s a widening or stagnant gender gap. Mr. Perdue does not seem to be moving or closing his number. He’s about 20 points behind Michelle Nunn in females,” Crane told Channel 2 political reporter Lori Geary.

The poll shows Perdue with a 7-point advantage among men but trailing Nunn 52 percent to 34 percent when it comes to women voters.

Nunn has a 65 percent advantage when it comes to African-American voters while Perdue maintains a 20-point edge among white voters. - WSB-TV, 8/22/14

The poll also has Jason Carter (D. GA) leading Governor Nathan Deal (R. GA) 44-40. Don't write either of these races off yet folks! It's going to come down to African American and female voters to help Nunn and Carter win. Lets help give their campaigns the support they need by donating and getting involved with their campaigns:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
