The Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s Greg Bluestein wrote about our new poll of swing-state Republicans and conservative-leaning independents, highlighting the fact that most Georgia respondents say they trust the state’s election system:

POLLING ELECTIONS. As Georgia GOP lawmakers consider a variety of changes to the state’s election laws, a poll released today by a nonpartisan organization offers a gauge of how conservative voters view voting laws in the state.

The poll, conducted by Secure Elections Project, surveyed more than 300 voters who consider themselves Republicans or conservative-leaning independents and found two-thirds say they’re happy with how elections are run in Georgia.

Trey Grayson, a former Kentucky secretary of state who chairs the organization, said the poll shows the vast majority of conservatives “trust their leadership to administer elections in a fair and impartial manner.”
