According to an AARP survey, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp is maintaining his lead over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams.

The poll also shows Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock (D) holds a narrow lead over GOP Senate nominee Herschel Walker.

The survey conducted by Fazio Ward and Impact Research which measured the responses of 1,197 likely Georgia voters, showed that Kemp has 7 point lead over Abrams, with the Governor achieving 52 percent support compared to Abrams 45 percent.

The poll showed Kemp gaining a significant lead over Abrams among Independent and 65-and-older voters, leading Abrams by 14 points and 18 points, respectively.
Abrams, however, has an advantage over Kemp among black voters aged 50 and older, achieving 74 percent support in this category.

Kemp also has a lead over Abrams in candidate imaging, with 50 percent of participants saying they hold a positive view of Kemp, compared to 46 percent who felt the same about Abrams.

Independent voters also preferred Kemp to Abrams, with 50 percent saying they view the Governor positively and 41 percent saying the same about Abrams.

The differences between Senator Walker and Republican nominee Warnock aren’t as stark.

Voters between 50 and 64 years prefer Walker, with 52 percent saying they support the Senator compared to 46 percent saying they support Warnock.

But Warnock walked away with a far more significant lead among black voters aged 50 and older, getting 80 percent support over Walker.

In candidate imaging, only 41 percent of respondents said they view Walker favorably, 47 felt the same about Warnock.
