Warnock racing out ahead of Walker in Georgia Senate contest | 11Alive Poll

11Alive conducted the poll between July 21-24 including more than 600 likely Georgia voters.

ATLANTA — Georgia is one of the key states in 2022 that could determine the balance of power in the U.S. Senate - with the latest SurveyUSA poll by 11Alive indicating Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock is on track to keep his seat. 

The Democrat, according to the poll, is leading over Republican Herschel Walker by 9 points, 48% to 39%.

This is a substantially favorable result for Warnock - who has had the advantage in several other recent polls going back to the beginning of June, but not by this much. The Real Clear Politics polling average has him ahead of Walker by 4 points.

The results also show Walker underperforming fellow Republican Gov. Brian Kemp's support in our poll of the governor's race - where the governor is in an effective tie with Stacey Abrams, at 45% to 44%.

Additionally, of those who said they prefer Kemp in the gubernatorial race, only 78% also support Walker for Senate. 

Meanwhile, out of the voters backing Abrams, 93% support Warnock.
