A new SurveyUSA poll finds Democrat Jon Ossoff has opened up his lead against Republican Karen Handel ahead of the Georgia 6th congressional district run-off.

Ossoff leads Handel by 51% to 44% with a little under a month to go before the June 20th special election.

Drilling down into the numbers, Ossoff is leading Handel in key demographics. He leads among men by 52% to 43%; women 50% to 44%. He leads among all age groups except 65+, where he trails Handel.

Ossoff leads Handel among black voters by a wide margin 79% to 12%. He trails by 3 points among white voters — 46% to 49%. Among Asian voters, he leads by 63% to 30%.

Donald Trump’s high disapproval number is weighing heavily on the race.

SurveyUSA interviewed 700 registered voters from 5/16 – 5/20 and included both landline and cell phone respondents. The poll was commissioned by WXIA-TV.
