According to a new poll, the GOP in Georgia is facing an electoral problem

A new poll released by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Saturday suggests the Republican Party in Georgia is in a difficult position. Democrats – including President Biden, Stacy Abrams, and the newly elected Sens. Jon Ossoff (D-Ga.) And Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) – have strong favoritism ratings, while Governor Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) And the former President Donald Trump fidgets. The more telling findings, however, could belong to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who became a Trump target when he rejected conspiracy theories about widespread electoral fraud in the state’s presidential election. The refusal to twitch left him relatively well behind in Georgia, although it turned out that his numbers were in large part driven by Democrats, 60 percent of whom said they approved of the job he was doing. Republicans only supported Raffensperger with 38 percent, while nearly 45 percent said they oppose it. For context, President Trump received almost 85 percent Republican support despite his meager total. And therein lies the riddle. The poll suggests that a Republican like Raffensperger might be challenging in a statewide election in Georgia, but it seems difficult to win a Republican area code to get there. And a candidate more like Trump would have a good chance of winning the primary, but would likely face an uphill battle in the general, leaving the party in no man’s land for now.
