    New Georgia poll: Agriculture commissioner and cockfighting laws
    Compiled from InsiderAdvantage and Southern Political Report staff

    February 25, 2010 —

    A new InsiderAdvantage/RosettaStone poll conducted on Feb. 10 of 580 likely voters in the Georgia Republican primary shows Gary Black leading Darwin Carter by a 2 to 1 margin for state agriculture commissioner, although 76% of the Republican primary voters are undecided.

    Also, in 2008, the Georgia legislature closed loopholes in the state's dog-fighting law by passing a bill that banned possession of a dog for the purposes of fighting and knowingly attending a dog fight. The legislature currently is considering closing similar loopholes in the state’s cockfighting law. A poll conducted on Feb. 10 of 1,235 registered Georgia voters regarding this proposal to close the loopholes in the state’s cockfighting laws is supported by a staggering 75% of voters. Among Republican Primary voters, 81% support this legislation. Georgia’s Agriculture Commission candidates should take heed of these numbers -- as animal issues such as euthanasia and so-called puppy mills have recently gotten wide attention in media.

    Republican Primary For Agriculture Commissioner


    Gary Black – 16%

    Darwin Carter – 8%

    Undecided – 76%
