Both candidates pull 47 percent support of those surveyed in the poll. Libertarian Jo Jorgensen had 1 percent support, while 4 percent of respondents said they were undecided.

Thirty percent of white Georgia respondents support the former vice president, 9 points more than the 21 percent for Clinton in 2016 exit polls. Eighty-five percent of Black Georgia voters back Biden, while 8 percent remain undecided.


Trump won the state over Clinton by just more than 5 points in 2016.

Trump's approval rating is slightly underwater among Georgia voters, with 48 percent approving of his performance as president and 50 percent disapproving.

The survey also found a tight race for both the Peach State’s Senate seats.

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) is in a statistical tie with Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff, with 47 percent to Ossoff’s 45 percent. The poll found 4 percent support for Libertarian Senate candidate Shane Hazel and 5 percent undecided.

Raphael Warnock, both have 20 percent support.

The other Democrats in the race, Matt Lieberman and Ed Tarver, trail the top three with 11 percent and 5 percent, respectively. About 17 percent say they are undecided.

Polling in the race has shown the Democratic vote split among the three, prompting calls for Lieberman and Tarver to drop out and consolidate behind Warnock.

Collins, meanwhile, built up a lead in his challenge to Loeffler on the back of his vocal defense of Trump during impeachment proceedings, but recent polling has shown Loeffler pulling ahead.
