Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. in the Senate runoff between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker in Georgia.
Democratic modelers believe that Mr. Warnock goes into Election Day with about an eight-percentage-point lead. If so, they say, Republicans would have to turn out in force and capture about 60 percent of the votes cast on Tuesday for Mr. Walker to pull out a victory.
Our pals at Electoral Vote say:
For what it’s worth, Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball changed its rating of the race yesterday from toss-up to leans Democratic. Part of their argument is that in the general election, every Republican running statewide won—except Walker. Sounds like that old “candidate quality” problem again, and the quality of the candidate hasn’t improved since Nov. 8. If anything, it has gotten worse. Also, the early vote was extremely heavy, and again, the early vote is almost always strongly Democratic.
