Democrat Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are leading GOP incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) in battleground Georgia less than a week from the January 5 runoff elections, according to a JMC Analytics and Polling survey relinquished this week.
Fifty percent culled “Ossoff,” 43 percent culled Perdue, and seven percent betokened that they remain undecided. According to the survey, Ossoff additionally has an edge among undecided voters, 53 percent to the incumbent senator’s 45 percent:

Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), 53 percent culled Warnock, while Loeffler amassed 44 percent support with three percent remaining undecided. Like Ossoff, Warnock carries the edge among undecided voters, 54 percent to Loeffler’s 45 percent.
Both of the Democrats’ leads are outside the survey’s +/- 4.4 percent margin of error. Per the survey’s summary:
Given that the poll numbers in both U.S. Senate races are almost identical, there are some common threads that can be discussed: (1) both Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff have nearly unanimous black support, (2) both Democrats have double digit leads among those with a racial classification of “other” (which includes Asians and Hispanics), and (3) both Democrats are garnering the support of one third of white respondents – Jon Ossoff is getting 40% of the white vote in Cobb and Gwinnett Counties (43% support Warnock), while in the “core counties” of Clayton, DeKalb, and Fulton, both Ossoff and Warnock are getting 55% of the white vote. Even in the central and south Georgia media markets, 33% of white voters are supporting Warnock while 36% are supporting Ossoff.
The survey’s summary noted that GOP Senate candidates should be concerned that Democrats are going into Election Day with a “massive lead from those voting (or orchestrating to vote) afore Election Day”:
Mail in voters are 67-31% for Ossoff/69-29% for Warnock, while advance voters are 55-44% for Ossoff/55-45% for Warnock. These numbers mean that even Page 3 of 14 though the poll numbers show massive Perdue/Loeffler leads among Election Day voters, they’ll need that vote to be substantially more robust than it was in November, when only 20% of the electorate voted on Election Day.
The survey coincides with a Trafalgar Group survey relinquished on Tuesday, which showed Democrats holding a marginal edge, though both of their leads were within the survey’s margin of error, betokening a statistical tie:
