Republican incumbent Senator David Perdue, who is seeking a second term, is essentially tied with Democrat Jon Ossoff, as 49 percent of likely voters go to Ossoff and 48 percent go to Perdue. Republicans support Perdue 97 – 2 percent, Democrats support Ossoff 96 – 2 percent, and independents support Ossoff 53 – 43 percent.
Likely voters have a favorable view of Ossoff, 45 – 38 percent, but are split on Perdue, with 45 percent saying favorable and 44 percent saying unfavorable.
“The Perdue-Ossoff race: expensive, combative, consequential, and a virtual tie. This Georgia race looms as one of several that could shift the balance of power in the U.S. Senate,” said Malloy.
