About 50% of voters said they approve of Perdue's job performance, and a similar number said they view Perdue favorably. His favorability rating has increased marginally in polls since January, but so has the percentage of voters saying they have unfavorable opinions of Perdue.
In the most recent poll, 34% said they view the senator unfavorably.
Four Democrats have announced they are running to unseat Perdue, a first-term Republican, in 2020. They are business executive and former Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor Sarah Riggs Amico, Former congressional candidate Jon Ossoff, Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry and former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson.
Zoa Hepburn, a 32-year-old bartender who lives in Atlanta, is a Democrat who says she has “zero interest” in voting for Perdue.
“I don’t think he’s a great person,” she said. “I obviously don’t personally know him, but he seems to echo a lot of what Trump says, which sort of disgusts me. ... I guess I just can’t imagine standing behind anybody who stands behind Trump, basically.”
