Election Day in Georgia will also have major consequences for which party controls the Senate, as there are two seats up for grabs this cycle.

Democrat Jon Ossoff leads Sen. David Perdue (R), 51 to 45 percent, in the new poll, up from a 1-point advantage in the prior survey.

"Sleepless GOP Senate watchers have Georgia on their minds,” said Malloy. “And with two Senate seats in play, Democrats are sensing that a potential seismic shift in the balance of power is possible."

The Quinnipiac survey of 1,040 likely voters in Georgia was conducted from Oct. 8 to Oct. 12 and has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
