Right-leaning pollster Mark Rountree is causing the ground to rumble under Republicans after a recent poll he conducted found early voting among black voters in Georgia is outpacing 2010. The Republicans would rather see black voters stay home if they aren’t voting for their candidates.
According to a recent WSB-TV poll (done via Rountree’s Landmark Communications), of the 307,703 voters who have cast ballots in early voting, 30 percent are black while 60 percent are white. For the same period in 2010, 26 percent of the 253,999 early voters were black, while 72 percent were white.
