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.

“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.
