Another Democrat, former federal prosecutor Ed Tarver, hardly registered in the poll, which was conducted Wednesday.
It echoed recent surveys of Georgia’s other U.S. Senate race that show a tight contest between Republican Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff. Perdue logged 47% in the WSB poll, while Ossoff was at 46%. Libertarian Shane Hazel had about 2%, while an additional 6% of voters were undecided.
In the race for president, the new poll pegged Trump at 49% and Biden at 47%, with an additional 4% of voters undecided. Libertarian Jo Jorgensen tallied a statistically insignificant figure. The last Landmark Communications poll, released on Oct. 1, showed the same tight dynamics.
Like previous surveys, Biden is far exceeding Hillary Clinton’s tally among white voters, registering about 28% of the vote. Meanwhile, about 10% of Black voters — the cornerstone of the Georgia Democratic Party — back Trump. Biden leads 60% to 31% among independents.
Sensing a chance to flip Georgia for the first time since 1992, Biden’s campaign has reserved about $4 million worth of airtime in the final month of the race, and his wife, Jill Biden, is set to arrive on Monday to mark the start of the state’s three-week early voting period.
Trump’s campaign, on the defensive, is largely off the airwaves in Georgia — though the president and his top surrogates recently stumped in the state, and Donald Trump Jr. will visit Savannah and Kennesaw on Monday.
