An AARP poll released Tuesday showed Republican Herschel Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) within the margin of error in the Georgia U.S. Senate runoff, which will be Held on December 6th.

Walker had 47 per cent of the support, while Warnock had 51 per cent. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

Among young voters aged 18-49, Warnock leads by 24 points. However, Walker led by 9 points with more than 50 voters.

Independent voters leaned towards Warnock over Walker (54-39%). Among the women, Warnock leads by 11 points. But Walker has a five-point lead among the men.

Polls have uncovered more details.OneAtlanta Journal-Constitution Report:

The investigation shows why Warnock continues to distance himself from Biden — and why Walker wants the race to be a referendum on the Democratic presidential record. His approval rating was 43%, slightly lower among voters 50 and older.

Older voters are particularly concerned about generationally high inflation, threats to democracy and challenges to the Social Security and Medicare programs.

About two-thirds said they were more likely to support a candidate who supports protecting Medicare from budget cuts and allowing the government program to negotiate lower prescription drug prices.

The poll, conducted by Fabrizio Ward & Impact Research, is the first major poll since the November 8 general election, when Warnock led by more than 35,000 votes (49.44 – 48.49%). A libertarian candidate received 2.07 percent support, perhaps reducing the chances of Walker outright beating Warnock.

A runoff election is triggered when neither candidate receives more than 50% of the total vote.

If Walker beats Warnock, the Senate would split 50/50, with Vice President Kamala Harris voting to break the tie. If Warnock wins, the Democrats will have a one-seat majority.
