The poll also touched on other races in the state, including Georgia’s Senate and Secretary of State. For the Senate, 65.9% chose Herschel Walker, with the second highest going to Gary Black at just 6.7%, while 22.9% were undecided. Walker had a 76.8% favorability rating with only 9.6% saying they had an unfavorable opinion.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s primary race against Rep. Jodi Hice appears to be much closer. The incumbent had only 28.1% against 26.4% for Hice. Participants were also split on Raffensperger, who angered former President Donald Trump after the 2020 election. Only 34.3% viewed him favorably, compared to 35.6% unfavorable and 30.1% saying they didn’t know. For Hice it was 37.2% in favor, 8.9% unfavorable and 53.9% said they did not know.

Both Perdue and Hice are backed by Trump, but while neither seems to be in a comfortable position in their respective races, that doesn’t seem to reflect on Trump himself. According to the poll, 77.4% have a favorable opinion of the ex-president, with 14.6% unfavorable and 7.9% uncertain.
