In one of Georgia's Senate races, Ossoff leads Perdue, 46 percent to 45 percent. Four percent of respondents are supporting Libertarian candidate Shane Hazel, pollsters noted.

The results indicate a statistical tie for both races, given the poll's 4-percentage-point margin of error.

Democrat Raphael Warnock holds a clear lead, however, in the state's special Senate election for the seat currently held by Sen.
