    GOP Candidate Just Took Massive Lead Over Dem Incumbent In Swing State

    Published on

    Republicans are in the lead in Georgia’s carefully watched midterm elections for governorship and U.S. senator with less than two weeks until election day.

    The survey by Rasmussen Report was performed on Sunday and Monday. The level of confidence is 95%, while the error margin is 3 percentage points.

    On October 23–24, 2022, Rasmussen Reports and “The Absolute Truth” with Emerald Robinson surveyed 1,053 Georgia Likely Voters. With a 95% level of confidence, the margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points. Pulse Opinion Research, LLC conducts all fieldwork for Rasmussen Reports surveys.

    Republicans are up in other statewide contests, according to the Georgia survey, and they also have a 10-point advantage on the general election question. Georgia Likely Voters would support the Republican candidate for Congress with 49% of their votes, while the Democratic candidate would receive 39%. Five percent (5%) are unsure, while seven percent (7%) would support a different candidate. On the congressional ballot, the GOP leads the unaffiliated electorate by 19 points, 46% to 29%.

    In Georgia’s gubernatorial race, 41% of Likely Voters would support the Democratic opponent, former state representative Stacey Abrams, while 51% would vote to re-elect Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

    Kemp receives more support from GOP voters and outperforms independents by a margin of 17 points. While 81% of Democrats and 87% of Republicans would support Abrams, respectively, Kemp currently has a 49% to 32% advantage among unaffiliated voters.

    More positive results from the same poll of 1,053 probable Georgia voters are available for Republican Governor Brian Kemp. His advantage over Democratic opponent Stacy Abrams is 51% to 41%. Unaffiliated voters are heavily favoring the incumbent, 49% to 32%.

    39% of respondents said they would vote for a Democrat on a general ballot question for Congress, while 49% said they would vote for a Republican. In 2020, Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden narrowly defeated Republican candidate and former president Donald Trump, 49.5% to 49.3%; in 2016, Trump easily defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton, 50.8% to 45.6%.

    The race between Democratic U.S. Sen. Rafael Warnock and Republican Heisman trophy winner Hershel Walker has been tilting in Warnock’s favor, especially when it comes to money.

    Walker’s cash deficit is enormous. Warnock has raised more than $111 million, according to Federal Election Commission figures from September 30, whereas Walker has gathered well over $37 million as of October 19. Walker has raised 33.3% more money than the first-term Democratic senator, for those following track at home.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    That mirrors Warnock’s $125 million haul in 2020 when he outpaced then-U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who raised more than $92 million. Warnock then beat Loeffler by 93,000 votes in a Jan. 5, 2021 runoff.

    Last week Walker and Warnock were in a dead heat, but now despite the lower funds, Walker is showing a 5-point lead over Warnock in the Rasmussen poll. A win by Walker is crucial to the Republicans’ winning back control of the U.S. Senate in November.

    Walker’s lead is mainly due to his 14-point margin among independent voters, as in the race for governor. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Georgia Republican voters would vote for Walker and 81% of Democrats would vote for Warnock, while among voters not affiliated with either major party, Walker leads 49% to 35%.
