An Update From Georgia on Today’s Critical Elections
We begin with the critical elections in Georgia today that will determine control of the senate and whether Joe Biden will be able to get anything done in the next four years if senate leader McConnell is able to continue his obstruction as the “grim reaper” holding up confirmation of Biden’s appointments, his nominations to the judiciary and whatever bills the House passes. Joining us from Georgia is Jeffrey Lazarus, a Professor of Political Science at Georgia State University to give us an update on the Republican turnout today since a lot of Democrats have already taken advantage of early voting. We assess whether the recent predictions by the normally reliable Five Thirty Eight poll that had Democrat Jon Ossoff ahead of Republican David Purdue at 49.2% to 47.4% and the other Democrat, the Reverend Warnock, ahead of the richest member of the U.S. Senate, the Republican Kelly Leoffler at 49.5% compared to 47.2% will hold. Or are the Republicans more fired up than much of the speculation in the press would suggest having them divided and dispirited by Trump’s crazy antics trashing his fellow Republican leaders in Georgia.
