There has been much speculation about the political future of former UGA running back Herschel Walker. His name has been linked to a potential run for U.S. Senate next year against Senator Raphael Warnock. Former President Donald Trump yesterday urged Walker to run.
To my knowledge, Walker has not spoken about a potential Senate run, but a new joint poll by the Trafalgar Group and Insider Advantage gives those hoping he runs a big boost.
In the survey (a link to the full poll can be found HERE) Walker leads incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock by 48%-to-46% with the remainder either supporting another candidate or undecided. Similar ballot tests between potential Republican candidates Doug Collins and Kelly Loeffler show Warnock ahead, although the margin between Warnock and Collins was less than a point.
