Walker Comes Out Victorious?

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) currently has a narrow 2 percentage point lead in the Georgia runoff elections against Republican challenger Herschel Walker.

A poll released by Emerson College Polling and The Hill showed that around 49 percent of very likely voters supported Warnock while only 47 percent had said they would be voting in favor of Walker. Around 4 percent disclosed that they had not yet decided which candidate they would support. As the two percentage points fall within the survey’s margin of error the two candidates are currently effectively tied.

From those undecided voters, when asked which of the two candidates they are leaning toward, 51 percent said Warnock while 49 percent said Walker.

When respondents were asked whom they expected to win the election, regardless of whom they were voting for 57 percent said that they expect to see Warnock emerge as the winner, while only 43 percent said the same about Walker.

This survey was released only a week before Georgia’s runoff election date. This is the last Senate election of the 2022 midterm elections. Warnock is aiming to secure his first full term in office, following his 2020 special election win against former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.). In the midterm elections, while Warnock led against Walker, he did not manage to secure the 50 percent of the overall vote required for a runoff to be avoided.

According to Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, Warnock holds 55% percent of the votes for those under 50, while Walker holds 55% of support for those over 50.
