AJC poll: Georgia voters sound off on Nathan Deal's gun, 'religious liberty' vetoes


Georgia voters have weighed in on Gov. Nathan Deal’s vetoes of so-called “religious liberty” legislation and a bill that would have allowed guns onto the state's public college campuses, according to an exclusive new poll from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
