ATLANTA An exclusive Channel 2 Action News/Landmark Communications poll shows President Donald Trump has expanded his lead in Georgia. The poll of 500 likely voters took place on Oct. 21, just before the final debate.
It shows Trump leading 49% to former Vice President Joe Bidens 45%. About 4% of Georgia voters remain undecided. That also falls within the polls margin of error, which is 4.4%. So it remains a statistical dead heat.
Its an improvement for Trump from our Oct. 9 poll that showed Trump with a 2% point lead over Biden. And in our poll back on Oct. 1, Biden led by 2%. Republican Sen. David Perdue has opened up a 6% lead on Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff. Perdue has 50.2% of support compared to Ossoffs 44.6%.
That 50% mark is important. If neither candidate reaches 50%, the race heads to a runoff election. With 20 candidates, the special election to fill the other former Sen. Johnny Isaksons seat is almost certainly heading to a runoff.
... We also asked voters how they intended to cast their ballot and there was a dramatic difference between candidates. About 64% of Trump voters are planning to wait until Election Day compared to only 29% for Biden voters.

MSNBC had a graphic that among 18-29 year-olds, 250,000 in Florida have voted compared to 45,000 in 2016. North Carolina is 204,000 this year to 25,000 in 2016, and Michigan 145,000 to 7,000. This is disconcerting. Anyone know more about these numbers?
“Good trends in polling today.”
I agree. I am feeling better about the election after today. Lot’s of good news out there.
Now I cant sleep again ...
Yeah, no kidding. I was really encouraged today until I saw those numbers. I just found the article. I still dont know how they know ages: https://circle.tufts.edu/latest-research/absentee-and-early-voting-youth-2020-election
18-29 year-olds. Sorry, I dont share your optimism with that age group and the graphic above presents it pretty clearly. Is the youth turnout really that strong? Something seems strange about these #s.
This is the gold standard of Georgia polling. I have met the man who runs it and he is completely ethical, scientific and unbiased
On early voting, it is way below what was projected from MSNB polling of people who said they already voted or Dems, Dems expected most of their vote to be early voting. here’s the total vote N Carolina as of today as reported by another Freerer:
Republicans cast—93,163 early votes yesterday
Democrats cast-—86,476 early votes yesterday
The Democrat early voting lead dropped to app. 340K
In 2016, Dems won early voting by 310K and LOST NC by 3.8 points.
Do not fall for MSNB propaganda, they will also show exit polls on election day that Trump is losing FL etc just as they did in 2016. Don’t fall for this
For true election numbers and polling see People’s Pundit of Big Data polls. They have over 60,000.
I appreciate that and have been watching those numbers and thats why I was so encouraged. Thats why I was stunned by the supposed huge 18-29 turnout in early voting in that article. The two numbers dont jive.
I agree - thought I heard LS say today, the yute vote was lagging 2016 ...
The operative word in the article is Early Voting - so early voting is up all over. I think this is just a cannibalization of the total vote. Those cant be all NEW voters unless they registered recently - and the GOP is leading NEW voter registration massively. JMHO
PS - most young people Dont vote early by mail - they dont know how to use the post office.
MSNBC also had a little chat in 2016 in which Hilary was winning by a landslide. How’s that turn out?
I’d steer clear of MSNBC of I were you.
but, but,but the Pravada on the Potomac media has practically guaranteed that Georgia was going to go blue ...
