1. Fox News poll sheds insight into primary election and voter opinions.

  • Heading into the Tuesday primary election, the poll sees incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp leading by 32 points against his challenger David Perdue.
  • The poll also asked GOP voters how much an endorsement from former President Donald Trump might influence their vote in the primary.

    • 36 percent said his endorsement would have no impact at all on their decision.
    • 24 percent said a candidate with a Trump endorsement would be less likely to receive their vote.

Niesse broke down the latest on strategic crossover voting in the 2022 primary election.
