Herschel Walker is unfavorable among Black Georgia voters in the peach state, according to a recent poll.

The results of a poll conducted among Black Georgia voters revealed that 80% would vote for incumbent Reverend Raphael Warnock if the US Senate race were held today. 

Black Georgia voters choose Warnock

Currently, 85% of Blacks in the state plan to vote for Rev. Warnock, while only 5% are planning to vote for senate candidate Walker. 

Despite the voter poll, Walker already denies the poll’s findings that Rev. Warnock is beating him by a wide margin among Black Georgia voters. 

“I think you’re wrong. I don’t need to argue with you about it. So, I think you’re wrong. You know you’re wrong,” Herschel Walker told a local reporter. 

Even Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, who faces candidate Stacy Abrams in November, is polling better among Black Georgia voters than Herschel Walker. 

While Walker holds 77% of Republican votes, Rev. Warnock holds 90% of Democratic votes. This includes 10% of Republican voters planning to cross the aisle and vote Blue in November. The poll also indicates that Senator Warnock is up 39 points in urban areas and 19 points in suburban areas. Walker is only leading in the rural parts of the state; that’s by 28 points. 

Is Herschel Walker afraid of debates? 

During the Georgia Republican primaries, Walker refused to debate any of his party’s senate candidates. 

“I’m ready to debate him [Rev. Raphael Warnock], any time he wants. But, it has to be a fair and equitable debate, and it’s got to be for the voters. Not for the press or some particular party. It’s got to be for the voters. So they can see the contrast,” he said. 

And although Herschel Walker stated that he’s up for debating Rev. Warnock, he hasn’t committed to a single debate. Rev. Warnock has committed to three debates against Walker in Atlanta, Macon, and Savannah.

In the eyes of Black Georgia voters, Walker appears timid when setting a date to debate Warnock.

  1. This is an excellent story and observation. I believe Sen. Warnock may even have coattails if we support him enough monetarily to get his message out. Herschel has legitimately crack pot ideas and a record to match that only the most Trump impaired mind could possibly fine them acceptable for a Senator from such a great state of Georgia. Make every Republican vote for other offices a vote for Herschel and his mystery cures.
