And to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution’s latest poll:
The poll pegged Trump and Biden at 47% apiece, with an additional 1% of voters backing Libertarian Jo Jorgensen. Only 4% were undecided in the survey of 1,150 likely voters, which was conducted Sept. 11-20 by the University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs.
Georgia’s twin U.S. Senate races are also competitive. U.S. Sen. David Perdue (47%) and Democrat Jon Ossoff (45%) are neck-and-neck, within the poll’s margin of error of 4.3 percentage points. Libertarian Shane Hazel has 4% support, and about 5% are undecided.The special election for U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat is still highly unsettled. Loeffler is pegged at 24%, echoing other polls that suggest she’s built a slight lead. But U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, her fiercest Republican rival, and Democrat Raphael Warnock are within striking distance at roughly 20% each.
This year, the divide has deepened. About 31% of independents support Ossoff, 31% back Perdue and 23% favor Libertarian Shane Hazel. An additional 15% are undecided.
Perdue, too, is facing the same challenges that have forced President Donald Trump to play defense in Georgia, where he’s scheduled to visit Friday. Ossoff is polling at 29% support among white Georgia voters — well above the 21% mark that exit polls show Hillary Clinton hit in the state four years ago.
As for Ossoff, the poll shows he has ground to make up among Black voters, the cornerstone of the state Democratic Party. Though a broad majority of Black voters support his campaign — 78% — he’ll seek to push those numbers above 90% by November.
