Dems Panic About Stacey Abrams’ Chances in Georgia Governor Race

Democrats had high hopes for Stacey Abrams in the Georgia governor race, but things are not working out as planned.

Almost every poll has Republican incumbent Governor Brian Kemp in the lead by a significant margin.

Democrats are slowly developing a sense of panic over the race.

The New York Times reports:

Democrats Fret as Stacey Abrams Struggles in Georgia Governor’s Race

Georgia Democrats have grown increasingly pessimistic about Stacey Abrams’s chances of ousting Gov. Brian Kemp from office, pointing to her struggles to rally key parts of her party’s coalition and her inability to appeal to a slice of moderate Republican voters who can decide the state’s elections.

Public and private polls have consistently shown her trailing Mr. Kemp, a Republican seeking a second term. And, in a particularly worrying sign for Ms. Abrams, polls also show she is drawing less support than the other high-profile Democrat on the ballot, Senator Raphael Warnock, who is seeking a first full term.

The gap between the two Democrats, which is within the margin of error in some recent surveys and as wide as 10 points in others, highlights the extent of her struggles. Though she is beloved by Democratic voters, she has lost some ground with Black men, who provided crucial backing in her narrow loss to Mr. Kemp in 2018. And while Mr. Warnock draws some support from Republican moderates, Ms. Abrams — who has been vilified more by the G.O.P. than any other statewide figure — has shown little sign of peeling off significant numbers of disaffected Republicans.

Ms. Abrams’s standing — consistently trailing Mr. Kemp in polls by around five percentage points — has alarmed Democrats who have celebrated her as the master strategist behind Georgia’s Democratic shift.

You know things are not looking good for Abrams if the New York Times is reporting this.

It doesn’t look good at all.

Democrats didn’t expect this to be a tough race, and now they may lose it.

    Thank God she’s behind. Hope and pray it stays that way. Georgia doesn’t need a corrupt democrat in charge. Not a big fan of Kemp but he’s batter than she is.
