Republicans See Good Signs in Georgia

Things are looking up in Georgia for the GOP.

First, though they lag behind Democrats in early voting, the lag is not as dramatic as it was in the general election. In fact, if the GOP pacing holds up combined with their typical turnout in runoff elections, they should be able to offset the Democrats and win.

Second, voters who did not vote in the general election are showing up. So far, about 20,000 or so new voters who were not in the general are coming. They appear mostly in the northern suburbs of Atlanta in Republican territory. While Democrats are making some claims that these are their voters, it really does not appear to be that way. These are voters in Republican areas that did not like Trump, but otherwise like Republicans. My suspicion is these are Republican voters who didn’t want to go vote for Trump, but will vote for divided government.
