Will the GOP Lose Georgia Because of This?

All eyes are on Georgia next week as two runoff elections will decide the final makeup of the United States Senate. Now, it appears there’s a reason for Republican concern as a significant portion of the conservative electorate says it will not vote.

A recent poll conducted in Georgia by SurveyUSA of voters who do not plan to show up for next week’s runoffs elections found that 55% of respondents who identify as “very conservative” said the reason they will stay home is because they believe the process is “rigged” — a concerning sign for Republicans who count on the outcome in order to maintain control of U.S. Senate,” according to Blaze Media.

Georgia GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will face off on Jan. 5 against Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively. If both Republicans lose, the Senate would flip to Democratic control, leaving the left in charge of both chambers of Congress and the White House if President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office as anticipated.

“In its analysis of the results conducted for WXIA-TV, SurveyUSA wrote “Of those who are not voting in the US Senate runoffs, a disproportionate number are conservative. Of those who identify as “very conservative,” 55% say they are not voting in the runoff elections because “the voting process is rigged.” This compares to zero percent of liberals and very liberals. [emphasis added]

The polling firm did note that “Georgia is a hot mess and no opinion pollster could possibly say what will happen when votes are counted,” but according to The New York Times, the GOP has been “on edge” already over the runoffs as numbers show strong early voting in some of Georgia’s Democratic strongholds.
