A new poll illustrating Brian Kemp’s weak support among Georgia Republican primary voters capped off a bad week for the vulnerable governor as he faced increased scrutiny among Georgians for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The poll, which shows Kemp one Trump-endorsed candidate away from losing his advantage in the Republican gubernatorial primary, comes as more Georgians criticize the governor for refusing to implement COVID-19 mitigation measures amid a virus surge fueled by the Delta variant and unvaccinated Georgians.
“Brian Kemp is losing support among his base and losing the patience and trust of Georgians at large more and more every day,” said Rebecca Galanti, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “As the state of Georgia’s schools, hospitals, and public health deteriorates under Brian Kemp’s watch, it’s no wonder Georgians of all political beliefs are sick and tired of Kemp and ready for new state leadership.”
