His high poll numbers have triggered speculation that he could aim for an outright win Tuesday to avoid an unpredictable head-to-head matchup against Amico or Tomlinson. He recently wrote a $450,000 check to his campaign, further fueling that prospect.

Ossoff’s advisers insist he’s not maneuvering for a clean victory next week, saying it’s a dim possibility in a crowded field featuring three candidates that have aired TV ads and one, Amico, who has spent more than $1 million of her own cash on her bid.
They say the cash infusion is meant to demonstrate he’s got momentum going into an August runoff against Tomlinson or Amico.
Republicans, meanwhile, have eagerly pushed the line that the contest to challenge Perdue is his to lose, thanks to the roughly $35 million he’s spent since 2017 boosting his profile mostly in the metro Atlanta market.
The crosstabs of the Landmark poll show Ossoff with large margins in nearly every category. He leads among older voters (50%), white voters (40%), black voters (43%), male voters (36%) and women (46%) voters. The candidates are roughly even among voters under 39, with 45% of the bloc undecided.
