LATEST POLLS: Loeffler, Perdue Lead Democrats by a Thread in Georgia
Latest polls querying the state of Georgia’s red-hot Senate runoff election reveals that both contests appear tight, with outcomes ranging from a Republican sweep to a Democratic sweep. The contest will ultimately determine the fate of the Senate Majority in the upper chamber of Congress, with Democrats seeking to sweep both seats to establish a 50-50 split in the Senate.
Two polls were surveyed within the time frame of December 14-16th and released over the weekend. An Emerson College poll showed both Republican candidates- sitting Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler- leading their far-left opponents by identical margins of 51% to 48%. Perdue and Loeffler are running against Jon Ossoff, a perennial candidate, and Raphael Warnock, a controversial left-wing minister with anti-white views.
Another poll commissioned by Trafalgar Group reveals Loeffler with a more handier lead over Warnock, leading the leftist minister by just under seven percentage points. In a rare incidence of a longtime incumbent running behind a newer Senator, Perdue only leads Ossoff by just under 3%, although this threshold of support is above 50%. In the Trafalgar poll, Loeffler leads Warnock by 52.2% to 45.5%, and Perdue leads by 50.2% to 47.5%.
Polls notoriously undersampled support for conservatives and Republicans for the 2020 presidential election, with aggregates for contested states such as Pennsylvania and Wisconsin off by as much as six or seven points in favor of the Democrat.
President Donald Trump has stood decisively behind Senators Perdue and Loeffler, who stand between the enactment of Chuck Schumer’s agenda in a tenative Joe Biden presidency. Elite coastal progressives have dumped millions of dollars behind Democrats in Georgia’s Senate runoff, convinced that the longtime conservative state has permanently gone blue.
