New Poll Shows GOP Leading Key Georgia Races
The GOP is winning in Georgia.
A poll from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the University of Georgia School of Public & International Affairs found that almost every Democrat candidate statewide was facing a “sizeable deficit.”
The poll also found that 51% of likely voters expect the GOP to take back Congress.
A new poll released Tuesday found Georgia Republicans ahead of their Democratic opponents less than two months before the midterm elections.
The poll, conducted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the University of Georgia School of Public & International Affairs, found that every Democratic candidate statewide aside from Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) was facing a “sizeable deficit” against their GOP counterparts.
51% of likely voters polled said they want the Republican Party to retake control of Congress, largely down party lines. 96% of Republicans prefer the GOP win back control while 97% of Democrats wanted their party to keep it.
The GOP candidate is also leading in two key races in the State.
Both Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Trump-backed Senate candidate Herschel Walker currently hold a lead, according to the poll.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp: 50%
Stacy Abrams: 42%
Herschel Walker: 46%
Raphael Warnock: 44%
The news was even worse for Joe Biden — he has only a 37% approval in Georgia.
With less than 50 days until the midterms, Democrats appear to be facing a tough election in Georgia, after President Joe Biden received a job approval rating of 37% among voters in the Peach State, with a total disapproval rating of 58%.
