Democratic candidate Major Bobby Saxon says he is closing the gap in the race for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District, showing a difference of less than ten percent in an internal poll.
According to the Saxon campaign, final poll results showed 41 percent of respondents stating they intended to vote for Republican incumbent Paul Broun, 31.3 percent stating they would vote for Saxon, 3 percent declined to participate, and 24.7 percent said they remain undecided less than a month before the election.
The campaign said the survey questioned 300 respondents, drawn from random sampling of all registered voters with phone numbers in the 10th Congressional District. The poll has an approximate margin of error of +/-6 percent. Over 95 percent of those polled stated that they were either certain or very likely to vote Nov. 4.
The survey instrument was created with the help of Dr. John Hocking, who also assisted the campaign with proper polling procedures, including sample determination, and data interpretation.
Bobby Saxon is an Iraq War combat veteran and small business owner from Nicholson. He is a Major in the Georgia Army National Guard and has served in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Pentagon.
