Sabato’s Crystal Ball shifts race as polling and fundraising show Ossoff gaining momentum over scandal-plagued Perdue
ATLANTA — Today, following recent announcements of early GOP ad buys and poor polling for Republicans, Sabato’s Crystal Ball once again confirmed that “Georgia is in play” in a new analysis that moved Georgia’s regular Senate election closer to the Democrats.
The analysis noted that Georgia is “a genuinely competitive state again” as Democrats “have picked up some momentum against Sen. Perdue.” In addition, “a preponderance of recent polling” shows just how close the race is along with recent major ad buys from Republican big money groups after “warning signs” for the GOP across the state.
Sabato’s Crystal Ball joins a number of other political forecasters who have moved the race closer to the Democrats recently as Jon Ossoff continues to build momentum against an increasingly weak Perdue. Now, Perdue’s own warnings of a close race are playing out in real-time — including his admission that the races have tightened since “the Democrats have made it that way.”
