Former Rep. Paul Broun ranked third, with state Rep. Tim Barr at seven percent in the stacked field.
Jones, a former Democrat, has been a strong supporter of former President Donald Trump. He was endorsed by Trump, entering the state’s primary.

Jones previously ran for governor but later dropped out after talks with Trump to allow former Sen. David Perdue to receive his endorsement, with Jones running for the House.
The latest poll confirms Jones has made the right moves to help himself as well as Trump as the midterms need decision time, with Georgia becoming one of the key states deciding whether conservatives take back power in Congress.
