Georgia Leaning Red As Of February

Just a reminder that there is no political betting allowed in any of the 50 states, but Georgia will once again be a hotbed for voters in a key Southern battleground state come November. In 2020, current President Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump by a mere 0.3% (49.5% to 49.2%). Four years earlier, Trump upended Hillary Clinton by a solid margin, 50.4% to 45.4%. 

With our recent compilation of poll data early on in the election process, it appears the state will go back to Republican red as they are the favorite at -105 (51.3%) to Democrat blue +125 (44.4%).  

Here are some key voting trends to keep an eye on for the first Tuesday in November:  

Between 2000 and 2020, Georgia voted for the winning presidential candidate 66.7% of the time. Since 2000, Georgia has voted Democratic 16.7% of the time and Republican 83.3% of the time.
