A Public Policy Polling poll commissioned by End Citizens United (Jun. 25-26; 734 RVs; +/-3.6%) and shared exclusively with Hotline found Joe Biden ahead of President Trump and a close race among the top three candidates in the Senate special election. In the presidential race, Biden led Trump, 49%-45%.

In the Senate race, Rep. Doug Collins (R-09) led the field with 23%, followed by Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) with 21%, and Rev. Raphael Warnock (D) with 20%. Entrepreneur Matt Lieberman (D) and former US Attorney Ed Tarver (D) trailed with 11% and 3%, respectively. In head-to-head matchups, Collins led Warnock, 43%-41%, and Warnock led Loeffler, 43%-40%.

ECU and Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller: “Despite lower name recognition than his opponents, Reverend Raphael Warnock is in a strong position to win this race. As his campaign diverts more resources to promote Warnock’s message and background, he’ll consolidate support from key voting groups in Georgia. These results spell trouble for Senator Loeffler and Rep. Collins.” (Hotline reporting)

Collins has the highest favorability rating of the three candidates, though barely, according to Public Policy Polling.

Thirty-four percent of respondents said they have a favorable opinion of Collins, while 35 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion and 32 percent said they weren’t sure.

Loeffler registered a 29 percent favorable rating and a 43 percent unfavorable rating, while 28 percent said they weren’t sure what to think.

Warnock garnered a 32 percent favorable rating and a 33 percent unfavorable rating, with 35 percent of respondents saying they weren’t sure of their opinion, putting him in roughly the same position as Collins.

Support for Warnock increased substantially when respondents were informed of his background as the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, the former pulpit of Martin Luther King Jr., that he is one of 11 children raised in a public housing project and that he is the first in his family to graduate from college.

The poll found that 36 percent of respondents said they would vote for Warnock when informed of his background, while 23 percent said they would vote for Collins and 18 percent said they would vote for Loeffler.

After being told of Warnock’s accomplishments, 44 percent of voters said they would back him in a head-to-head matchup against Collins, while 42 percent said they would support the GOP House member.

When Warnock’s life story was included, 46 percent of respondents said they would vote for him over Loeffler, while 39 percent said they would support Senate Republican incumbent.

The poll of 734 registered voters in Georgia was conducted June 25 and June 26.
