GA-Sen A & B: Quinnipiac Poll Continues To Show Ossoff (D), Warnock (D) & Biden All Leading

3 min read

Some big news today out of Georgia courtesy of Quinnipiac University’s latest poll:


In Georgia, Biden leads 51 – 44 percent among likely voters, while 4 percent are undecided. On September 29th, the race for the White House was too close to call when Biden had 50 percent support and Trump had 47 percent support. The September survey was taken before the first presidential debate and the president's COVID-19 diagnosis.

Today, likely voters give Biden a slightly positive 51 – 46 percent favorability rating, compared to amixed 48 percent favorable and 49 percent unfavorable rating in the last survey.

Likely voters give Trump a negative 43 – 54 percent favorability rating today, compared to a mixed 47percent favorable and 51 percent unfavorable rating in the last survey.

“For Trump, 2016 is a distant memory. Defeating Hillary Clinton by 5 points when the polls closed then,and now down seven to Biden with three weeks to go. Warning lights are blinking red and alarms are going off in the Peach Tree state,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

Likely voters say 59 – 38 percent that they do not trust Donald Trump to tell the truth to the American people when it comes to his health.

For Joe Biden, likely voters are divided 50 – 46 percent that they do trust Biden to tell the truth to theAmerican people when it comes to his health.


Today, Democrat Jon Ossoff leads Republican incumbent Senator David Perdue 51 – 45 percent, while 3percent are undecided. This compares to a virtual tie in late September when Ossoff had 49 percent and Perduehad 48 percent.

When it comes to favorability ratings, likely voters have a positive view of Ossoff 46 – 36 percent, and a mixed view of Perdue with 43 percent saying favorable and 46 percent saying unfavorable.


Democrat Raphael Warnock leads in the special election for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed in December of 2019.

Likely voters give Warnock 41 percent of the vote, a jump of ten percentage points since late September when he received 31 percent. Republican Doug Collins gets 22 percent, which is unchanged from September, and Loeffler gets 20 percent, compared to 23 percent in September.

If a candidate does not get more than 50 percent of the vote on Election Day, there will be a runoff.
In hypothetical head-to-head matchups between Democrat Warnock and the top two Republican challengers, Warnock leads in both scenarios. Likely voters support Warnock over Loeffler 52 – 44 percent, and support Warnock over Collins 54 – 42 percent.

“Sleepless GOP Senate watchers have Georgia on their minds. And with two Senate seats in play,Democrats are sensing that a potential seismic shift in the balance of power is possible,” added Malloy.

SurveyUSA also released their latest poll on behalf of Channel 11 Alive News and found closer races:
