A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Biden with a 7 point lead over Donald Trump in Georgia.
The latest Quinnipiac survey finds that 51 percent of likely voters in the state support Joe Biden while 44% supports Donald Trump. Only 4 percent of voters remain undecided.
Trump’s favorability is also underwater in the state. A majority, 54% views Trump negatively while 43% views him favorably. On the other hand, Biden is seen in a positive light by 51% of Georgians.
Remember, this is a state Trump won in 2016 by 5 points.
Donald Trump’s unfavorability appears to be affecting down ballot Republicans in the state as well. Democrat Jon Ossoff is leading incumbent Republican senator David Purdue by 6 points, 51%–45%.
In the special election race to replace Republican senator Johnny Isakson, Democrat Raphael Warnock leads with 41%, a 10 point gain from last month. He’s followed by Doug Collins, 22% and Sen. Kelly Loeffler, 20%.
The Quinnipiac survey was conducted between Oct. 8 and 12 among 1,040 likely voters in Georgia and has a 3 percentage margin of error.
