It seems Herschel Walker has a polling issue on his hands. In a runoff election scheduled for December, the former NFL running back and college football hero is competing against Democrat Raphael Warnock in Georgia for a seat in the U.S. Senate.
Currently, Walker is depending on the polls by a very little margin. The American Association of Retired People commissioned the current survey, which showed Walker trailing Warnock by 4 points, outside the poll’s margin of error of 3.3 percentage points, according to The Comeback.
“The poll found, while Walker has a nine-point advantage against Warnock among those 50 and older, Warnock has a 24% points advantage over Walker among the age of 18 to 49. There’s a difference of 33% points between those two outcomes.”
For the former NFL star, heading for a runoff by Warnock and Walker doesn’t seem to be promising news. To weigh on the current poll results, sports fans have reached out to social media.
One fan mentioned, “That even 1% would vote for Walker is a really sad perspective of Georgians.”
“Who cares what the polls say? Survey results are no longer reliable,” another fan added.
Another fan commented, “It is insane that they’re that close.”
“After the midterm elections, specifically, I’m not retweeting any polls. Let’s simply work to increase voter count” a fan mentioned.
In the fundraising department, Walker is continuously facing some issues and troubles. By a particular amount of money, he trails Warnock. It seems like the election runoff for December, is expected to be an interesting one.
