When a high-turnout model is considered, Trump leads 48 percent to 46 percent. In a low-turnout scenario, Trump’s lead grows, with the president garnering 50 percent support compared to Biden's 45 percent.

Trump has swung to a lead among seniors in the state, opening up a 25-point lead over Biden after the two were effectively tied in July. Biden, meanwhile, has opened up a 9-point lead over Trump among voters aged 50 to 64 after the candidates were tied in the last poll. 

“There seems to be a tension between shoring up the base and courting swing voters in Georgia," said Monmouth Polling Director Patrick Murray. "A loss in one demographic group appears to be offset by a gain in another.”

Trump is viewed favorably by 45 percent of Georgia voters, compared to 46 percent who view him negatively. Biden posts a 43 percent-45 percent favorable-unfavorable split.

About half of voters say Trump has done a good job of handling the coronavirus and just over half say they believe the president will have the U.S. in position to recover from the pandemic. Fifty percent say Biden would also handle the U.S. recovery well. 

Georgia also has two competitive Senate races. 

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) leads Democrat Jon Ossoff 48 percent to 42 percent.

Unless one candidate gets 50 percent support in November, the top two candidates will move to a runoff in January. 

“Back in the summer, it looked like this seat might be a Republican lock, but Warnock has started to consolidate Democratic voter support,” said Murray. “We could see a two-party contest in January after all.”
