ATLANTA -- A new InsiderAdvantage/Poll Position survey shows that Sen. Barack Obama has whittled away at the lead held by Sen. John McCain in Georgia.
Fifty-one percent of likely voters in Georgia said they prefer McCain to 43 percent for Obama.
The 18 points lead that McCain held a week ago has dropped to 10 percentage points.
Two percent prefer other candidates and four percent are undecided.
Voters are split along racial lines with 72 percent of whites supporting McCain and 87 percent of African-Americans saying they plan to vote for Obama.
The support is also divided among men and women. Sixty-five percent of men are McCain supporters while 54 percent of women back Obama.
The poll of 503 registered likely voters, weighted for age, race, and gender, was conducted Wednesday evening. It has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent. The collected data are weighted by age, race, gender and political party affiliation.
