Herschel Walker Has Three Point Lead Over Warnock As Biden’s Support Tanks In Georgia

Videos by OutKick

The 2020 presidential election was seen as a transformative moment in American politics in the state of Georgia.

President Joe Biden won the vote in Georgia, a “deep south” state, that was notoriously known for voting red. Biden received 49.5% of the vote, edging out Donald Trump by just 0.2%. He became the first Democratic nominee to win the popular vote in the state since Bill Clinton in 1992.

Just a little over a year later, all signs indicate that a majority of Georgia natives have soured on President Biden and Democrats in general. Per a new poll conducted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) released Thursday, just one-third of registered voters approve of the president’s performance thus far — a sharp decline from the 51% that approved of Biden in AJC’s May poll.

Not only have Biden’s numbers plummeted, but Herschel Walker is now firmly in the race for the U.S. Senate. When asked who they would vote for if the U.S. Senate election were held today, 47% of Georgia natives said they would vote for the former NFL and Georgia running back turned Republican politician, while 44% said they would vote for Democrat incumbent Raphael Warnock.

The race is one of the most expensive in the nation. Warnock, fresh off raising more than $9.8 million in the last three months of 2021, has $23 million in the bank for his re-election bid. Walker, meanwhile, has roughly $5 million in the bank.

Despite his poll numbers trending downward, Biden told reporters on Jan. 19 that he’s unbothered by the troubling statistics.

“I don’t believe the polls,” Biden said.

  1. No offense but this guybis full of shit. It’s within the margin of error. Plus Herschel is seen as a bit of a flake. He might be suffering from CTE. This same polls had Warnock and Osfoff behind to. How did that work.out? I’ll wait

    • -Biden’s a dementia patient who goes around shitting himself and he gets around-I’ll be generous-okayish. If Walker has CTE I’m sure he’ll be just fine.

      -It’s Georgia and he’s Herschel Walker. “Know your history please.”

      -POTUS’ approval rating in Georgia is not within the margin of error, but I’m sure you just forgot to mention that.

      -“How did that work.out?” Maybe you didn’t notice, but the tone of the country-including Georgia apparently-has shifted dramatically since late 2020/early 2021. Stop acting like it hasn’t.

  2. Walker will need a 30 pt lead to counter Stacey Abrams’ Gang when they start counting Fulton County votes. …. THE Most Corrupt Voting District in America. Fulton County (black urban Atlanta) never releases their votes until all other votes in the state are in … and they know how many votes they need to manufacture to win.
