In a new Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll of registered voters, Trump is defeating Biden by 8 percentage points in Georgia. The two men are likely to be their parties’ respective presidential nominees.
Trump received 44.7% in the survey, while Biden saw 36.9%, suggesting the potential for Georgia to flip back to red in 2024. In a similar measure taken in November, the men were practically tied in the state.
The new poll shows Biden’s lingering difficulties among black voters affecting his support in the presidential election. According to the survey, 58.6% of black people in the state plan to vote for Biden.
