New Poll Alert: Walker 49%, Warnock 47%

Friday, July 8, 2022 – On Friday, the Daily Beast reported results from a new Data for Progress poll showing Herschel Walker at 49% and Raphael Warnock at 47%. Excerpt from the article below: 'Georgia is already a hotbed of political spending as Democrats try to maintain their momentum in the state — and a new poll shows the race between former NFL player Herschel Walker (R) and incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) is neck-and-neck. A survey by Data for Progress conducted between July 1 and July 6, exclusively shared with The Daily Beast, shows Walker narrowly leading Warnock by 49 percent to 47 percent. Both candidates fell into negative favorability ratings, as Walker received a -3 favorability while Warnock received a -7. The Georgia Senate seat is one of Democrats’ top priorities this year as they hope to maintain power in Congress’s upper chamber. But with the party forecast to face massive headwinds during the midterm elections while President Joe Biden’s favorability continues to spiral, Democrats in Georgia, like many other states, could be facing an uphill battle.'

Herschel's spokesperson, Mallory Blount, issued a statement following the latest poll results: 'Raphael Warnock has gone Washington and left Georgia behind. That’s why even Democrat pollsters say he’s in trouble in Georgia. He has voted with Joe Biden 96% of the time and seems to have forgotten that he was elected to represent Georgia, not Joe Biden. Joe Biden and Raphael Warnock are one and the same — and are the reason why you can’t afford to drive to work.”
