The New York Times reports:
In the regularly scheduled Senate election, Mr. Ossoff is now tied with Mr. Perdue at 43 percent. Mr. Perdue led Mr. Ossoff by four percentage points a month ago, 41 percent to 37 percent.
The survey was conducted from Oct. 13 to 19, and it found no immediate evidence of a shift in Mr. Ossoff’s favor after Mr. Perdue made national headlines by mocking the first name of the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, on Oct. 16.
Nonetheless, Mr. Perdue’s favorability ratings declined significantly since the last Times/Siena poll in September, when 47 percent of voters had a favorable view of him and 34 percent had an unfavorable one. Now, Mr. Perdue’s ratings stand at 44 percent favorable and 42 percent unfavorable.
Democrats gain in Georgia Senate races as the presidential contest remains deadlocked, per new NYT/Siena poll:
Biden 45, Trump 45
Ossoff 43, Perdue 43, Hazel 4
Warnock 32, Loeffler 23, Collins 17
Warnock+4 v. both Collins and Warnockhttps://t.co/7atcFrw9tS
