A new survey of likely voters in Georgia’s Senate runoff election reveals that Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican ex-athlete Herschel Walker are statistically tied, showing little movement from the Nov. 8 general election ahead of the runoff election day.

The survey, conducted by a consortium of pollsters led by COMPETE Digital, a progressive organization, reported that 50% would vote for either candidate. It paints the runoff as a true tossup just days before the election.

The survey showed Warnock leading among independent voters, gaining 52% of support, while Walker led among supporters of Libertarian Chase Oliver, gaining 67% of support. Oliver’s vote share, 2.1% or 81,278 votes, denied Walker and Warnock 50% outright, leading to the runoff.

Biden’s agenda will remain hampered, however, following the GOP wresting control of the House of Representatives from Democrats.

Turnout in runoff elections is generally lower than in general elections, making “get out the vote” efforts to return original supporters to vote essential, per former Georgia State Senate President pro tempore Eric Johnson. “It’s all about turnout. I went to vote today in Effingham County (70% Trump) and the line was too long. I’ll vote later,” he wrote to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The survey polled 939 likely Georgia voters and had a margin of error of 3.1%. Walker and Warnock did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
