Gov. Brian Kemp (R) is leading Democrat Stacey Abrams by five points in this year’s gubernatorial race in Georgia, according to a new poll.
The poll, conducted by the ECU Center for Survey Research from June 6 to 9, found Kemp with 50 percent support and Abrams with 45 percent support, while two percent of respondents said they were undecided on a candidate.
Kemp is facing a rematch in November against Abrams, a voting rights activist and former state lawmaker whom he narrowly defeated in 2018. Abrams is back on the campaign trail with stronger financial support and a higher profile than in 2018, but Kemp indicated to Breitbart News in an interview in May he was undeterred by her candidacy.
