New poll indicates majority of Americans want Republicans in charge of Senate
With control of the U.S Senate to be decided by two Georgia runoff elections in January, America supposedly prefers that the GOP under Mitch McConnell continue to run the show in the chamber.
According to preliminary data from a Harvard-CAPS Harris online poll of about 2,000 registered voters, 56 percent favor Republican control as opposed to 44 percent who prefer Chuck Schumer and the Democrats, The Hill reported.
If the Dems flip both seats in Georgia, the Senate would be split 50-50, with whoever the vice president happens to be empowered to cast a tie-breaking vote. If that turns out to be Kamala Harris, it would unfortunately be all systems go to implement radical socialism in the U.S.
Schumer has already vowed to change America and the world with the two Georgia wins
“As of now, the voters want divided government and their votes for the Senate and House indicate that as well. This is a strong headwind for Democrats in the special election though [President] Trump’s continued failure to concede could muddy the waters here,” polling director Mark Penn claimed.
Incumbent GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will face off against Democrat challengers in separate runoffs scheduled for January 5 because no candidate reached the 50% threshold required under Georgia law to win their elections outright. Perdue is seeking a second, six-year term, while appointed Sen. Loeffler is in a special election to finish out the term of retired Johnny Isakson. If she wins, she will have to run again in November 2022 to stay in office.
Both Perdue and Loeffler have called upon Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign because of allegations of irregularities in mail-in voting procedures. As it stands now, Perdue won 49.7 percent of the vote, just shy of the threshold, to Democrat challenger and stealth liberal Jon Ossoff’s 47.9 percent, a 88,000 differential.
The Trump campaign is challenging the results of the presidential voting, which Raffensperger has already certified as a very narrow (0.2 percent) victory for Joe Biden.
I fully support President @realDonaldTrump's request for a recount in Georgia. We must match and verify absentee ballot signatures to their corresponding voter registration signatures, investigate all voting irregularities, and count only the votes that were legally cast.

Loeffler finished second behind radical Democrat Raphael Warnock, primarily because GOP U.S. Rep. Doug Collins was also in the running. Combining both Republican candidates’ votes would have pushed Loeffler into first place, but theoretically still short of 50 percent to avoid the runoff.
Both Republicans and Democrats are pouring money and resources into both special elections
Over the summer, Sen. Loeffler, a co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, said that the American flag as a unifying symbol rather than the approved BLM-related wording should appear on team jerseys, which prompted some attempts by players to cancel her.
