Dems about to blow the Loeffler Senate seat election in GA

The election for the remainder of the term for alleged insider trading, anti-BLM, deplorable Sen. Kelly Loeffler is on the verge of being a lost cause for Democrats due to vote splitting and candidate pride in the upcoming jungle primary. If no candidate receives more than 50% in the lection on November 3, the top two finishers, regardless of party, advance to a run-off election. Given the size of the field, no candidate seems like to break 50% on Election Day.

The latest poll on 538 is from A+ rated Monmouth University and the results are not pretty:

Kelly Loeffler (Rep) - 26%
Doug Collins (Rep) - 20%
Matt Lieberman (Dem) - 14%
Raphael Warnock (Dem) - 9%
Ed Tarver (Dem) - 5%
Brian Slowinski (Lib) - 3%
Other/Undecided - 23%

The combined percentage for the three Democrats is greater than that of either Republican; but that does not matter when only the top two advance. If two of the three Dems do not drop out before the primary, this race is lost, which is simply absurd. We can win a head to head match up against either Insider Trading Barbie or Presidential Bootlicker Congressman Collins. Instead, we appear to be on the verge of royally mucking up the election for this seat.

1. Other/Undecided is a big chunk.

...and yes, some Dems need to drop out.

4. Dems are Polling at a Collective 28% for all 3 of them. That's Sad.

I view Loeffler as a damaged candidate but apparently she's holding on a decent number of supporters. That 23% undecided number is a problem though. This isn't really a good barometer of the race.
