Poll shows Gov. Deal's approval ratings remain high

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A new poll indicates that Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal's approval ratings remain strong.

A survey taken January 20 of 460 registered voters in Georgia shows Governor Nathan Deal with a strong approval rating of his job performance by voters. Asked "What is your opinion of the job performance of Governor Nathan Deal," the weighted results were:

Approve: 55%
Disapprove: 29%
Undecided/No opinion: 16%
The survey has a margin of error of +/- 4.6%


InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 political analyst Matt Towery said the poll results weren't surprising.

Towery said that the results suggest that Deal would be a strong candidate if he chooses to run for a second term next year.

"At this point I would say that Gov. Deal is about as popular as a governor in this region of the nation can get. We used to require approval of 50 percent to say a governor was in good shape for reelection, but that bar moved several years ago to around 45 percent, so Gov. Deal is sitting pretty as of now," Towery said.
