:snip::

Warnock, a first-term Democrat and pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, leads Walker by 50% to 38%, according to a poll of 1,076 likely voters taken from Sept. 30 though Oct. 4 by Survey USA for an Atlanta-based television outlet. Previous polls showed the race to be much closer or even statistically tied.

Almost all of the polling was completed before the evening of Oct. 3, when the Daily Beast reported that Walker had paid for a former girlfriend’s abortion 13 years ago. Walker, who supports a national ban on abortion, has called the Daily Beast report untrue.

A former football star and longtime Donald Trump acolyte, Walker has also in recent days been publicly criticized and called a liar on social media by his 23-year-old son, Christian.

Walker’s support is especially weak among women, according to the poll. Although male voters were evenly split on the two candidates, women favored Warnock by a margin of 29 points. The poll, conducted for WXIA TV’s “11 Alive” news, has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.

3. That is my comfort...

Even without the specific abortion issue, this cretin has to remind every one of them (regardless of race) of the very worse they have encountered from men in their lives--whether "exes" or those who assert (or try to assert) authority over them.

5. Unlike FL & TX, GA Is A Legit Purple State

I'm cautiously optimistic about Reverend Warnock's chances.

Less optimistic about Stacey's chances, which is a real shame, since she's brilliant, and one of our finest candidates. Since it's a Purple state, I'm thinking she'll finish closer than Beto & Charlie will in their Governor races.

I'm so sick of this crap, and they do it all the time. RepubliQans "surge" while Democrats "cling."

Herschel might as well grab his helmet and head to the locker room. He's getting snuffed in the fourth quarter.

13. Yes, it's an outlier at this time.... but

but the last few days have been pretty bad for Walker... lol


If there is to be a "pink wave" or women's surge against Republican candidates in this election,
the women of Georgia have a LOT more reasons to vote against Walker, than just abortion rights...

What excites me most about this poll result, is the margin of women against Walker... against him by 29 percent, whereas men are split more evenly. If that is near accurate, it will be impossible for Walker to win.

15. Are there 3rd party candidates in this race? Is it possibly going to a run-off?

I guess if this poll holds it won't but has Warnock been consistently over 50?

22. Warnock has not been consistently over 50, at all...

This is the only poll I can recall which showed him at over 50 percent... but there are undecideds of course.

I presume there are some small 3rd-party candidates on the ballot, as it has been noted that a run-off is possible.

17. I was hoping for this

The party as well as the conservative nutbag churches will never give up one of their candidates no matter how many times one of their candidates betrays a GOP tenet, but the voters will. If they can't support a religious candidate like Warnock who is pro-choice, they also can't support one that's actually been involved with a woman getting an abortion. They'll probably still vote, but they'll sit out the Senate race.

this is the first time I've read where Warnock was ahead to any degree. From my reading this excerpt, it appears the poll is an Atlanta tv news source (?) based in Atlanta? If only the rest of the state was like Atlanta.

xing fingers it becomes a trend.

It should be a massive landslide ...

And yet Abrams who has been so good on so many issues is still 5 pts or so behind the guy who arguably cheated her out of office with massive voter purges in 2018
