Washington, D.C. – All summer long, the media was breathless: Raphael Warnock is a flawless gift to Georgia, and Herschel Walker doesn’t have a chance against him…
Well, like most media prophecies, that turned out to be bunk.
Today, a new poll is out from InsiderAdvantage/Fox 5 Atlanta showing Herschel Walker up by 3 points, 47% to 44%. This comes just about a week after Emerson showed Herschel up by 2 points, and Trafalgar showed Herschel up 1 point just a few days before that. For those keeping score at home, that is three straight reputable polls that show Herschel Walker is ahead of Raphael Warnock.
Now that summer has passed and voters are tuning into the race, it is clear that they are remembering who Raphael Warnock really is: A rubber stamp for Joe Biden and his unpopular agenda. They are sick of it and are ready to make a change in November.
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “Herschel Walker is surging in Georgia. While we fully expect the press to completely gloss over this momentum, and why it’s happening, it doesn’t change the facts. Georgians know who has their interests at heart, and it’s Herschel Walker, not the guy who votes with Joe Biden 96% of the time.”
