On Friday, President Trump made an unproved assertion on Twitter that two of Georgia’s Senate Races were invalid and illegal. This argument could further increase the complexity of his attempt to gain more votes for the Republican candidates in the race for the Senate.
On Monday, President Donald Trump is thoroughly prepared for holding a rally in Dalton, Georgia. This rally is organized one day before the election. The Republicans in Georgia are positively hoping that the presence of the President will bring a large number of votes for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler who are the incumbent senators of Georgia from the Republican Party. They are hoping that the focus of Trump’s comments will be on the importance of Republicans voting for the candidates.
However, President Trump has gone entirely opposite to falsely claim that in the general elections conducted on November 3, 2020, the election system of Georgia was rigged in opposition to him. Some Republicans in Georgia are worried that their followers will take the words of the President and decide against voting in a system that is corrupted and rigged. Such development, it occurs, could easily hand the election over to the Democrats.
In Georgia, some political science professionals and strategists have said that President Trump’s attack on the voting system in Georgia could be slightly responsible for the low turnout of Republican voters in the northwestern section of Georgia where Democrats have a stronghold. The voting period of this place ended on Thursday, and Dalton, where the President is set to conduct a rally, forms a part of this section.
- In the period of early voting, more than 3 million voters participated in Georgia. From December 14, 2020, this period of early voting began. Looking at the situation, the Republican supporters will have to come out in large numbers to give any chance of victory in the Senate to the Republican candidates. This is because, in the early phase of voting, there was a huge turnout by the African-American community in general and also by voters in areas that are heavily Democrat-favouring.
