Polling numbers are starting to look somewhat better for Georgia incumbent GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue as the date nears for their runoff race that could ultimately determine which party will control the Senate because voters are starting to see the importance of the election, pollster John Thomas told Newsmax TV Saturday.
"It's actually looking a little bit better for Republicans as we go to this homestretch," Thomas told Newsmax TV's Rob Schmitt on "The Count."
He said the latest polling has Loeffler up at 52% against Democrat challenger Raphael Warnock, at 46%, and Perdue taking the lead at about 50% to 48% for Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff.
"These numbers, they're not locked in stone," said Thomas, but trend lines are telling a story on the races.
"These races are still in motion, and the fact is both Republicans' latest polls this week have cracked that critical 50% threshold, which tells us when you look down deep into the numbers, It means Republicans are coming home, Republicans that might have been skeptical about the race," said Thomas. "Whether it was whether their vote will count or not, (they) are now starting to come together, unite."
He added that is likely because the Republican voters are seeing the importance of the race and deciding that there is "too much at stake here" and that they better vote to keep "a check on a Joe Biden and a Nancy Pelosi."
