Sorry Fani, Trump Up In Georgia

Former President Donald Trump maintains an 8-point lead over President Joe Biden in a new poll of Georgia voters that was conducted as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis testified in a hearing to determine whether she should be disqualified from her prosecution of the former president.

The Emerson College pollsters found 48 percent of Georgia voters support Trump, and 42 percent support Biden, giving the former president an 8-point lead of the incumbent. Biden was declared the winner in Georgia during the 2020 elections with a margin of less than 12,000 votes.

Support for the former president was also consistent across age groups, as pollsters found Trump’s highest level of support, at 52 percent, is among Georgians aged 40 to 49. Georgians aged 18 to 29 supported Trump by the slimmest margin, with 42 percent supporting the former president, 41 percent supporting Biden, and 17 percent of voters undecided.
