In a Republican Primary for U.S. Senator today, David Perdue tops 6 challengers, Perdue at 29%, Jack Kingston at 19%, with Phil Gingrey, Paul Broun, and Karen Handel effectively tied for 3rd place. A runoff is likely. The U.S. Senate Seat is open; Saxby Chambliss is retiring.

In the Republican Primary for School Superintendent, 9 candidates battle for name recognition and voter share of mind, with any outcome possible. 45% are undecided. The top 5 candidates have between 7% and 10% support levels. A runoff is certain. The sitting Superintendent, John Barge, is running for Governor.

In the Democratic Primary for U.S. Senator, Michelle Nunn decisively defeats 3 opponents, Nunn 48%, Todd Robinson 14%, Steen Miles at 11% and Rod Radulovacki at 5%. Nunn is likely to reach the 50% needed to avoid a 07/22/14 runoff.

Of those Georgians who do not have health insurance, half will sign up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act, half won't. Of those uninsured who won't take advantage of the ACA, most say that the policies are too expensive.

12Which of these best describes why you will not sign up through the Affordable Care Act? Because the policies are too expensive? Because they require coverage you don't need? Because you are politically opposed to it? Because you are waiting for the penalties to get higher? Because you think the law will be repealed or changed? Or some other reason?

13Right now, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in Georgia is a criminal offense, punishable with up to a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Should possession of less than once ounce of marijuana remain a criminal offense? Should it be changed to a civil offense, punishable with a fine of up to $100? Or should it be changed to not be against the law at all?
