According to a new poll, former NFL star Herschel Walker, right, is the favorite in the midterm election over incumbent Raphael Warnock, D-Ga, in the race for a U.S. Senate seat.

The Senate race in Georgia appears to be shifting back in the GOP’s favor, according to a new poll that shows Herschel Walker as the favorite in the midterm election over incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga.

An InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta poll released Thursday suggests Walker has taken the lead in the Georgia race, one of the most closely watched Senate races in the nation, with the football legend receiving 47% support from voters in the Peach State over Warnock’s 44% support.

The latest poll shows a two-point increase for Walker and a four-point decrease in Warnock’s support since a July poll — a major shift in the race just two months before the midterm elections.

Walker shared Wednesday why he believes he is getting a boost above his Democrat opponent in several recent polls.

“The reason is, I’m getting out and meeting the people, and I’m talking to the people and the people are speaking,” he said. “You know, they’ve spent over $50 million against me, but the race is still tied.”

Walker went on to highlight why he feels Georgia is in need of new Senate leadership. 

“People want a change in Washington,” he said. “Senator Warnock is a cut from the cloth of Joe Biden. And what I mean by that is he believes in higher taxes, he believes in open borders, he voted to put men in women sports. And that’s not what the Georgian people want. The Georgian people want someone they can trust, and they can trust in Herschel Walker.”

Warnock is winning among younger voters and seniors but trails badly among those 40-64, said InsiderAdvantage chairman Matt Towery alongside the poll results. Men support Walker at 60%, while women support Warnock at 55%.

“With only 4% undecided, this race could very well be headed to a General Election runoff given the fact that there seems to be few points among the various demographics up for grabs,” Towery said.

After months of going back and forth, Warnock agreed to debate Walker in October.

The poll also shows Democratic gubernatorial nominee and former state Rep. Stacey Abrams is trailing incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp, R-Ga., in the race for the governor’s mansion. Kemp leads in every age group in the survey. He receives right at 10% of African American support and a rather astounding 68% of White voters surveyed. Abrams has an impressive 54% of female voters, while Kemp receives 63% from men.

The InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta survey was conducted from Sept. 6-7, 2022, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

  1. Georgia voters are voting for Abrams and Warnock. White voters are the ones keeping especially Walker in the race, the Georgia Bulldog nation. Look at each man’s character and that will answer who is the best choice.

  2. Lol want to bet money who wins this race?

    I bet Stacey Abrams loses by double digit.

    Only clowns like you would vote for her.

  3. Pray for God to awaken people to their need for His blessing on the USA! America is reaping the consequences of ignoring God’s revealed truth and choosing immoral and destructive ideas. Georgia and the rest of the USA needs to admit that life doesn’t go well when God is excluded! “Seek the Lord while He may be found…” Isaiah 55:1-11

  4. Because 40-65 year olds are the backbone of the nation. They are the working families, the parents, the lived and understand. The younger generation votes with their bleeding hearts, not their brains, and the elderly vote democrat because they are uneducated in the realities of the current democratic party.
