Poll shows Democrat Raphael Warnock leading close race in Georgia


Democrat Raphael Warnock has a slight advantage in the runoff race in Georgia, where he will again face Republican Herschel Walker, according to a SurveyUSA poll released this week.

The poll, taken days before the Dec. 6 runoff race in Peach State, shows Warnock leading Walker with 50% support to Republican’s 46% and 4% voters remaining undecided. However, Walker struggles to close the gap when the undecided are asked to choose who they lean towards, reducing Warnock’s lead to three points, or 50% to Walker’s 47%:

Warnock also holds the advantage among female voters (+11%) and younger voters (+35%), while Walker maintains a lead among male voters (+6%) and older voters (+22%) .

The survey also asked respondents to identify “several” main issues, and the high cost of living and inflation topped the list, with 61% identifying it as an important issue. According to the poll, “voters who choose this option support Walker by a 9-point margin, 53% to 44%”.

Almost half, 49%, also chose that the economy is of major importance, and among those who chose this option, Walker leads eight points. Another 31% also identified crime as a major problem, and of those who chose this topic, Walker, again, tops the list at 9%.

According to the survey:

Of those who tell SurveyUSA they have already voted, 61% say they voted for Warnock, 39% for Walker. Among those who say they are certain to vote on or before December 6, Walker narrowly leads, 51% to 47%. Those who say they are likely to vote – 19% of the electorate – prefer Warnock by a margin of 15 points, 54% to 39%. With control of the Senate no longer in play, motivating these voters to vote will be essential for the Warnock campaign.

The poll was conducted November 26-30, 2022, among 1,214 likely voters in Georgia. It has a margin of error of +/- 3.1%.

It comes just days before the December 6 election, pitting Warnock and Walker against each other as neither passed the 50% threshold in November’s midterm elections.

Despite polls predicting that Walker leads Warnock by 1.4% on average, it is the Democrat who took advantage, beating Walker by less than one percent in the official election results.

In particular, the final The SurveyUSA poll before the midterm elections showed Warnock ahead of Walker by 6% but still fell short of the 50% threshold – 49% to Walker’s 43%.

The latest SurveyUSA poll coincides with an Emerson College poll /The hill survey showing Warnock leading Walker by two percent, as well as a Phillips Academy survey showing Walker ahead of Warnock by one point:

America,” he added. .
