Now that it appears more and more likely that President Donald Trump will soon have to leave the White House, Republicans are shifting their energy to the U.S. Senate runoff races in Georgia, which is what many in the party consider the last line of defense against Democrats pushing a long list of progressive policies on America.
According to Breitbart, a majority of Americans feel the same way, as the results of a recent poll published in the wake of the 2020 election shows that 56 percent of voters want Republicans to retain control of the Senate.
In the newly-published Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, only 44 percent of Americans preferred that Democrats take control of the Senate.
According to Newsweek, 2,205 registered voters were surveyed in the poll and it was conducted between November 17 and November 19, long after the post-election turmoil.
The poll comes as both sides attract what many are predicting to be record-breaking support in the form of money and, especially for Democrats, Hollywood starpower as a number of celebrities are speaking out and lobbing massive amounts of cash at Democratic candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
As Politico reported, both parties have already dumped tens off millions of dollars in cash to their respective candidates, which was only to fund the first week of intense television and radio across the state. Hundreds of millions could ultimately be spent by the parties in an effort to push their candidates over the finish line.
Although Sen. Loeffler’s net worth is in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars, she won’t be spending any of her own money to fund the campaign. Instead, she’s turning to the tried and true tactic of asking Fox News viewers for financial help, much like South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham did in the run-up to his election.
“We know that hundreds of millions of dark liberal money is pouring into our state. That’s why it’s so important that everyone across the country get involved,” Loeffler said recently in a network appearance.
Sen. Perdue used the same tactic during an appearance with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, convincing viewers that if Republicans can win in Georgia, “we save America.”
