For several months, the runoff races in the state of Georgia consistently headlined national news. Due to the high-stakes nature of these races, the special elections are ones that Republicans and Democrats remained quite invested in.
Republicans seek to keep their party’s Senate majority by re-electing David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Meanwhile, Democrats aim to regain their party’s control in the Senate; although, the only way for this to occur is for Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock to defeat both Georgia Republicans. If even one of the GOP senators wins the race, then the Senate will stay under a Republican majority.

Election Day in Georgia has arrived and in real-time, Georgians are going to the polls to vote. However, a new survey from InsiderAdvantange Poll and Fox5 shows that both of the Senate races are tied at 49% each, as reported by Newsmax.

The Pattern of Polling the Georgia Runoffs

Polls for the races between David Perdue vs. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler vs. Raphael Warnock consistently showed that the runoffs would be close.
For a time, Ossoff and Warnock were seen leading Perdue and Loeffler by a few points; then, the polls flipped to showing the GOP senators heading their left-wing rivals, before going back to the Georgia Democrats having an advantage.

All that has changed. In neither of the races do any of the four candidates have a lead over their opponents. Perdue and Ossoff are both tied at 49% in their race, as are Loeffler and Warnock. This latest polling information from Fox5 and InsiderAdvantage Poll arrives after data received from 500 Georgians on January 4.

Voting to Preserve and Save America

Perdue, Loeffler and the many Republicans backing them have repeatedly called for Georgians to vote. A vote for both GOP senators is described as one that will save freedom, liberty, constitutional rights, and patriotism in America. Both of the Republicans in the runoffs have the endorsement of President Trump, Vice President Pence, and several other big-name conservatives.

Today, all four candidates in the Georgia runoffs are urging their supporters to get out and vote. With the latest poll showing all four candidates in a tie lesser than 50%, it is clear that winning will come down to a numbers game and whether or not more Republicans or Democrats vote at the polls today.
