Biden up by 7 points in Georgia: survey
The Hill ^ | 10/14/20 | JONATHAN EASLEY

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump by 7 points in Georgia, according to a new poll.

The latest Quinnipiac University survey finds Biden's support at 51 percent and Trump's at 44 percent, with 4 percent of respondents undecided. Biden led by only 3 points in the same poll in September, before the first presidential debate and Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

Biden is now viewed favorably by 51 percent of Georgians, compared to 46 percent who view him negatively. Trump is underwater at 43 positive and 54 negative.

Trump will campaign in Georgia, which last went for the Democratic nominee in 1992, later this week.

"For Trump, 2016 is a distant memory,” said Quinnipiac pollster Tim Malloy. “Defeating Hillary Clinton by 5 points when the polls closed then, and now down 7 to Biden with three weeks to go. Warning lights are blinking red and alarms are going off in the Peach Tree state."

Quinnipiac’s polls have regularly found Biden with bigger leads than other pollsters have found. Trump and Biden are effectively tied in the RealClearPolitics average of Georgia surveys.

Election Day in Georgia will also have major consequences for which party controls the Senate, as there are two seats up for grabs this cycle.

Democrat Jon Ossoff leads Sen. David Perdue (R), 51 to 45 percent, in the new poll, up from a 1-point advantage in the prior survey.

Ossoff has a 10-point net positive favorability rating, while Perdue is underwater by 3 points.

And Democrat Raphael Warnock leads the big field of contenders in the special election race to replace former Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.).

Warnock has 41 percent support, followed by Rep. Doug Collins (R) at 22 percent and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) at 20 percent. If no candidate reaches more than 50 percent on Election...

Georgia? Are we talking the state in the Southern US or the European Black Sea coastal country?

Who cares??

Only someone who is mentally ill and stopped taking their medicine in the 90s would believe this! :)

We gotta start putting these threads in the Laughs department instead of news.

Cause honestly? They’re ridiculous.

I Guarantee that Trump will win Georgia And North Carolina.

In fact, I guarantee he will win the election.

And in 20 days I can stop seeing these ridiculous poll numbers posted :)

We will keep the senate also.

Ossoff is the most hated human being to ever be on a ballot. Everyone despises that worm. He is a complete joke.

Doesn’t matter. But ya 50 bucks that we get crying about how the state will be robbed by us or some other crying...

We need a thousand boxes of Scott Tissues daily for the board lately.

So people can wipe their eyes.

THANK GOD Trump doesn’t think like too many do here.

Be positive. Get everyone who is voting Trump out the door.

And pray.

To the criers. Stop it.

Quinnipiac Polling should never be reposted. It’s absolutely laughable and has no reflection on reality.

On the eve of the 2018 election, Quinnipiac had Nelson and Gillum winning in Florida by seven. This wasn’t a few weeks prior either. It was their final poll on the eve of the election.

The both lost.

That miss is so far outside the realm of reasonable polling, that nothing that they spew after that should ever be believed. For people to pretend a miss that bad didn’t happen and to give their polling credibility after that is utterly laughable and borders on deliberate trolling.

No. Trump won GA by 5.7 points, with another 3.1 points going to Gary Johnson. This poll is a steaming pile of manure. Unless polls showing Biden up 12 points nationally are legitimate. [giggle]

If Biden wins Georgia by 7 percentage points then Biden would win Nationwide in a landslide. So let’s hope this poll is an outlier.

Of course we’ve all discussed a lot here about limitations with polls.

It will be interesting to see after the election how many of these polls were way off.

Richard Baris at People’s Pundit mentioned this poll today. He was not impressed. Evidence that these guys just do not understand their trade. It’s nonsense.
