Georgia’s 2022 Senate race is shaping up as a close one in which incumbent Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock holds an edge of retaining his Senate seat, a new 11Alive poll shows.
The poll surveyed nearly 1,300 likely November general election voters in Georgia between April 22-27.
It reveals that, at least as of right now, Warnock enjoys an advantage over Republican rival Herschel Walker that would be greater than his 2% victory over Kelly Loeffler in the 2021 runoff that catapulted Warnock into the Senate….
This is quickly becoming the presumptive race for Georgia in November.
Walker, the former University of Georgia football star, must still advance out of a primary in May, but additional polling that you can review below shows that his lead over a small field of contenders is substantial.
11Alive’s poll shows that, among the likely November voters surveyed, Warnock maintains a 5% advantage.
The full result is below:
If the November election for United States Senator from Georgia were today, and these were the only candidates on the ballot, who would you vote for?
- Herschel Walker – 45%
- Raphael Warnock – 50%
- Undecided – 5%
The margin of error is 3.4%.
