Democrats have been looking to turn Georgia blue for decades.
And in 2020, they thought they’d finally won the southern state for good.
But the latest findings in the state show that Georgia Democrats may have counted their chickens before they hatched.
The most recent poll out of Georgia is bad news for Democrat gubernatorial frontrunner Stacey Abrams.
Abrams narrowly lost to Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018 and has since become one of the new faces and leaders of the Democrat Party in the United States.
Prior to her bid for the Governor’s mansion, Abrams was the Minority Leader in Georgia’s House of Representatives.
Back in 2018, Abrams fell just 50,000 votes shy of an upset victory to become the new Governor of Georgia.
Since that time she’s refused to concede, claiming she only lost due to so-called “voter suppression” and she’s been a leading player for Democrats on the national stage.
So, of course, Democrats are pinning their 2022 gubernatorial hopes on Abrams.
However, the latest Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll, Abrams trails incumbent Governor Brian Kemp by 8-points, 48%-41%.
And the bad news doesn’t end there for Abrams.
Gov. Kemp is in a primary with the Trump-backed former U.S. Senator from the Peach State, David Perdue.
The survey shows Abrams also losing to Perdue, 47%-43%.
The 2022 Midterms will be important for the GOP.
Republicans lost the 2020 Presidential election in Georgia, as well as both of the U.S. Senate race runoffs.
Elsewhere, things look much better for the 2022 Trump-endorsed U.S. Senate Candidate, Republican Hershel Walker than they do for Stacey Abrams.
According to the poll, the legendary running back leads incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock 47%-44%.
If the former Heisman Trophy winner can upend Warnock, it could spell the end of the Democrats’ majority in the U.S. Senate.
It is important to note, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the largest newspaper in the Peach State and is radically Left.
Other items of interest out of the survey include:
Only 1/3 of respondents approve of the job President Joe Biden is doing – compared to 51% who approved of President Brandon back in May of 2021.
71% of Georgians believe the Biden Administration has the country heading in the wrong direction – a 19-point increase from the last poll in May, 2021.
A plurality of Peach State voters says they’re economically worse off since Biden took office – 42%, compared to 33% who say they’re doing better and 25% who say things haven’t changed.
Gov. Kemp has a net +6 approval rating among his constituents.
By a margin of 53%-44%, Georgia voters want more restrictions on election drop boxes.
