National Public Affairs GA-14 Survey Findings
National Public Affairs recently completed a survey of likely Republican primary voters in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District (see methodology statement at conclusion of document). Despite constant attacks, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and former President Donald Trump remain wildly popular among the district’s GOP base.

Additionally, despite nearly 100% name ID and strong favorability for both President Donald Trump and Governor Ron DeSantis, President Trump is the overwhelming favorite to be the 2024 GOP nominee among likely Republican primary voters in GA-14.
