The campaign of Rep. Paul Broun (R) released a new survey of 10th district GOP primary voters Monday that showed the freshman Congressman with a wide lead in the primary over state Rep. Barry Fleming (R).

The survey, which was conducted by the the Tarrance Group on June 17 and 19, gave Broun 80 percent of the vote to Fleming’s 15 percent with just 5 percent undecided. The survey of 300 likely primary voters had a 5.8-point margin of error.

Broun also had 97 percent name recognition in the northeast Georgia district, while Fleming was known by 58 percent of primary voters. The Congressman earned a 80 percent/10 percent favorable/unfavorable rating while Fleming was viewed favorable by 21 percent and unfavorably by 17 percent.

The primary will take place on July 15.
