A poll conducted by WSB-TV and Landmark Communications has revealed Donald J. Trump has 48.6 percent of the vote and Vice-President Joe Biden 46.8 percent. Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen is polling at 0.7 percent. The margin of error is 4 percent.
Reverend Raphael Warnock tallied 36% in the poll, leading the top two Republicans in the jungle primary. U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler has 26% and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins has 23%. About 800 people are undecided in the poll.
Republican Sen. David Perdue finds himself in a virtual dead heat with Democrat Jon Ossoff. Perdue leads with 47 percent of the vote compared to Ossoff’s 45.5 percent. Six percent remain undecided. The margin of error is also 4 percent. Libertarian Shane Hazel, who has just 1.5 percent, could force a runoff if both Perdue and Ossoff are unable to cross the 50% plus one threshold for victory.
“The only fight left in this race is whether it’s going to be Loeffler or Collins in the runoff,” said Mark Rountree, president of the Republican-leaning Landmark Communications firm that conducted the poll.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms recently endorsed Ossoff and Warnock in their U.S. Senate races.
