Brian Kemp holds a 6-point lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams
Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp continues to hold a decisive lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams in the Georgia gubernatorial race, according to a poll released Tuesday.
A Trafalgar Group poll showed that of 1,079 likely voters in the general election, 50.6% would vote to re-elect Kemp, who is seeking his second term as governor.
Abrams, who faces the incumbent for the second time, got just 44.2% in the poll, six points behind Kemp.
The gubernatorial race poll is a good sign for Kemp’s re-election effort. The poll also showed 1.6% would vote for another candidate, Shane Hazel, while 0.1% said “other” and 3.5% were undecided.
The recent poll is another bad sign for Abrams. While the Democrat has trailed Kemp in the polls for months, Breitbart News wrote in July that Abrams was trailing in the polls despite his massive spending advantage.
At the time of reporting in July, Abrams had raised nearly $50 million since starting his campaign and spent more than $30 million compared to Kemp’s $17 million.
The poll also showed Republican Senate candidate and former soccer star Herschel Walker slightly ahead of Democratic incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock.
When the same group of respondents were asked which candidate they would vote for in the U.S. Senate race, 47.5% said they would vote for Walker, while slightly fewer, 46.7%, said that they would vote for Warnock.
Although within the margin or error of about three percent, the poll is a bad sign for the incumbent Democrat. The poll also showed that 2.9% would vote for another candidate, Chase Oliver, while 2.9% said they were undecided.
The Trafalgar Group poll was conducted August 24-27 among 1,079 likely general election voters and had a margin of error of 2.9%. The poll also had a 95% confidence level.
