WSB poll: Warnock soars ahead in wild Georgia U.S. Senate race

The race for president between Donald Trump and Joe Biden in Georgia remains deadlocked in the latest Channel 2 Action News poll, but the contest for a wild U.S. Senate special election now has a clear front-runner.

Democrat Raphael Warnock tallied 36% in the poll released Friday, staking a double-digit lead over the two top Republicans in the race. U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler was pegged at 26%, while U.S. Rep. Doug Collins was at 23%. About 8% were undecided in the poll of 600 likely voters, which had a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

It’s among several recent polls that show Warnock’s standing rising in the 21-candidate special election for Loeffler’s seat, which is expected to end in a January runoff between the two top vote-getters.

1. YES!

So glad to see this, especially:

Warnock’s gains came largely at the expense of fellow Democrat Matt Lieberman, who tallied just 3% in the poll. Lieberman faces extraordinary pressure to quit the race and clear the way for Warnock, who is backed by prominent state and national Democratic figures.


Liberman should have dropped out ages ago.

It echoed recent surveys of Georgia’s other U.S. Senate race that show a tight contest between Republican Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff. Perdue logged 47% in the WSB poll, while Ossoff was at 46%. Libertarian Shane Hazel had about 2%, while an additional 6% of voters were undecided.


C'mon Ossoff. You can do it!

2. Warnock Will Make Run Off With 36% But Collins + Loeffler Combine for 49% In The Poll

The combined total for the Dems doesn't total at 49%. We have to hope there is some GOP defection once we know whether Collins or Loeffler will be the GOP candidate.

3. I don't know what's better. Seeing Loeffler lose or Gaetz's boy Collins lose?

Hopefully we'll see both.

4. I would be wonderful to have a Democratic Senator from GA.

It's been a long time coming.
