Jones was initially running for governor in Georgia but dropped out of that race at Trump’s urging and earned Trump’s endorsement once he joined the congressional race.
Trump had sought to combine Jones’s support with that of Trump’s endorsed gubernatorial candidate, former Sen. David Perdue, amid Perdue’s campaign against Gov. Brian Kemp, who has been the subject of Trump’s ire over Georgia’s 2020 election process.
The poll also asked how the 703 likely Republican primary voters who were surveyed identified themselves within the party.
Thirty-one percent said they were a “Trump Republican,” 27 percent said they were “traditional/establishment,” 17 percent said, “evangelical,” nine percent said, “libertarian,” eight percent said, “outsider,” and seven percent said. “something else.”
Jones said in a statement to Breitbart News, “What this poll shows is clear: the momentum in this race is on our side. The people of the 10th Congressional District want a Congressman who has earned the trust of President Trump, isn’t afraid to fight against the Radical Left, and won’t back down to the GOP Establishment.”
He added that “despite every attack from the Fake News media and RINO Republicans, our campaign continues to connect with more and more Georgians every single day.”
Collins, the second-place candidate in the poll, has not appeared deterred by the Trump factor as the May 24 race nears. In a statement on social media on April 4, Collins stated, “What Donald Trump understood more than all his career politician competitors is that the most important endorsement was the PEOPLE–active voters and dormant.”
The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percent.
