Political Rewind: New Poll Shows Split Approval Ratings In Georgia — And What It Could Mean For 2022
Wednesday on Political Rewind: Candidates continue to line up for the 2022 election in races that will determine just how purple Georgia has become. Democratic state Rep. Bee Nguyen launched her effort to take on Brad Raffensperger in the battle for Secretary of State, while the 6th Congressional District's Rep. Lucy McBath draws another GOP challenger. Meanwhile, in the unfolding gubernatorial race, it is uncertain if Gov. Brian Kemp will see a notable Republican challenger.
Plus, the results of a new poll from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reveal approval numbers for top elected officials in Washington and Georgia. How do state voters feel about Kemp's job performance as he begins his quest for a second term? And what does this poll reveal about how the public feels about Kemp's likely opponent, Stacey Abrams? And is there any sign of bipartisan support for President Joe Biden following his first 100 days?
