Internal GOP poll suggests tight prez, Senate races in Georgia

The poll pegged Joe Biden at 47% of support and President Donald Trump with 46%, within the margin of error of 4 percentage points. A small number of voters – just 5% – said they were undecided and 2% declined to answer.

U.S. Sen. David Perdue led Democratic frontrunner Jon Ossoff by a 43-41 margin, also within the margin of error, in his re-election bid. Libertarian Shane Hazel logged 7% of the vote and 8% were undecided. Ossoff’s top rivals weren’t tested in the GOP poll.

And the pollster pronounced the November special election for appointed Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat “wide open.” Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (19%), Loeffler (18%) and Democrat Matt Lieberman (17%) were in a jumble at the top of the 21-candidate race, while Raphael Warnock, backed by national Democrats, was at 9%. About one-quarter of voters were undecided.
