If you ask Georgians, Donald Trump would be U.S. president again: Poll shows a solid lead over Joe Biden

Georgia – In Georgia, a new poll shows that former President Trump is ahead of President Biden by 8 points among registered voters. This poll was published on Tuesday by the AJC. It found that if an election happened today, 45% of voters in Georgia would choose Trump, while 37% would go for Biden, assuming they are the chosen candidates for their parties.

A decent number of people didn’t choose Trump or Biden

A noticeable number of people haven’t decided on either Trump or Biden. About 6.5% prefer a different candidate, nearly 6% won’t vote, and around 6% are unsure. Among independent voters, 13.8% won’t vote for Biden and 10.7% are still deciding who to support.

Biden is more popular with moderates and independent voters, but this isn’t enough to beat Trump’s lead in Georgia, where there are more Republicans registered than Democrats. About half of the moderates are for Biden, compared to 26.4% for Trump, and 10.2% supporting someone else. Among independent voters, Biden is leading with 38.4%, Trump has 27.7%, and 9.4% are for another candidate.

Biden and Trump are both getting strong support from their own parties and from those who identify as liberals and conservatives. The survey shows Biden has the backing of over 84% of Democrats, while Trump has 82.5% of Republicans behind him. Additionally, Biden has 74.4% of liberal support, and Trump has secured 75% of conservative support.

Trump already secured the first big win

This poll comes out just as Trump has taken the victory in the Iowa caucuses, the first major event in the Republican primary race. As of Tuesday morning, he was leading in 98 of Iowa’s 99 counties.

However, Trump is facing legal challenges this year, including one in Georgia. He and 18 of his former associates are accused of trying to change the 2020 election results in Georgia, which is a violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
