Kemp Continues Lead in Georgia, but Trump Endorsed David Perdue May Force Runoff

Incumbent Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp continues to poll just over the 50% required to avoid a Republican runoff race, though Trump-endorsed David Perdue continues to pick up steam, and his advocates and surrogates claim the polls aren’t counting Perdue’s voters.

The latest Insider Advantage/Fox 5 Atlanta poll shows Kemp at 52%, followed by Perdue at 38%, and a distant Kandiss Taylor at 6%. An additional 1% of those polled say they intend to vote for Catherine Davis, and 3% were undecided. The margin of error is +/- 3.6%.

Should Kemp receive less than 50% of the vote, he and Perdue will face each other in a runoff election. 45th President Donald Trump has supported Perdue with rallies and endorsements, and is planning a “tele-rally” for Georgia voters today to encourage them to vote Perdue tomorrow.

Debbie Dooley, a citizen activist who supports Perdue, has told Valiant News that she believes the media’s decision to only poll voters who are considered likely primary voters fails to capture the breadth of the race.

Kemp, Dooley says, is wildly unpopular among Republican voters who typically only vote in a general election. She believes Kemp’s refusal to help Trump contest the 2020 election, combined with his ongoing feud with Trump and the endorsement of Kemp’s opponent, will drive Republicans to the polls in record numbers.

Polling experts disagreed, predicting that rain in the forecast may keep all but the most excited of voters from the polls.

“With rain in the forecast it is likely only the most motivated voters will participate,” claimed pollster Matt Towery.

“While these numbers still show a Kemp win without a runoff, that could be determined by who turns out on Tuesday,” the pollster continued, quoted by Fox 5 Atlanta. “Regardless we believe some polls have set an impossible level for Kemp to achieve and that these numbers, within the margin of error and the three percent undecided, are a more reasonable reflection of the race as it stands today.”

While Perdue has received support from Trump, Kemp has sought support from former Vice President Mike Pence.

Meanwhile, John Fredericks, Dooley, and other Republicans have been in a marathon bus tour of Georgia in an attempt to drive up their support in the final days.

Georgia voters will head to the ballot box tomorrow to determine candidates for Congress and Governor. In competitive races, Trump has endorsed Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate, Vernon Jones for U.S. House, and David Perdue for Governor.

Many candidates received surges in support among likely voters after the voters learned of the Trump endorsement.

    The election was rigged again. There are NO free elections in Georgia.
    No way Kemp got over 70%. They’re still using the illegal Dominion machines to dominate us. What’s worse is the SOS RaffensPerger bought new, similar machines that are still connected to the internet, when the citizens were crying for paper ballots. These thieves are worse than King George.
