Pro-Trump Herschel Walker polls higher than Raphael Warnock in potential 2022 match-up

Ex-NFL legend Herschel Walker may be the GOP’s best hope to unseat Sen. Raphael Warnock in 2022, when the newly elected Democrat will have to run for re-election in Georgia.

According to the Washington Examiner, a new Trafalgar poll showed Walker with a slight edge over Warnock in a hypothetical match-up after former President Donald Trump said the football star would be “unstoppable” as a Senate candidate.

“Wouldn’t it be fantastic?”

Warnock, for his part, narrowly defeated then-Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) in a special election in January.

Walker, a Georgia native, won the Heisman Trophy when he played with the University of Georgia, then had a lengthy NFL career, the Examiner reported.

“Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the legendary Herschel Walker ran for the United States Senate in Georgia?” Trump said in a statement last week, according to The Hill.

“He would be unstoppable, just like he was when he played for the Georgia Bulldogs, and in the NFL. He is also a GREAT person,” the former president said. “Run Herschel, run!”

Walker leads the pack

The former president and ex-running back have a friendship that goes back decades, and Walker even spoke at the Republican National Convention last year on Trump’s behalf.

“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald,” Walker said at the time, as the Washington Examiner reported. “The worst one is racist. I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist. People that think that don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the Deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump.”

His close relationship with Trump seems to already be helping Walker win over Georgia voters; according to the Examiner, the recent Trafalgar poll showed that Walker also beat out previous GOP Senate candidates like Loeffler and former Rep. Doug Collins by double digits.

Ex-Sen. David Perdue (R), who narrowly lost to Sen. Jon Ossoff (D) in another special election in January, has said that he would not challenge Warnock in 2022, the Examiner reports. Perdue and Loeffler’s losses gave the effective Senate majority to Democrats, with a 50–50 tie that would be broken by the vice president, Kamala Harris.

To this point, Walker has not said whether he will run for Senate or any political office.

  1. Georgia is vote fraud central on the R side. Until it’s fixed, the elections go the way THEY want them to. No point in voting until it’s fixed.

    1. You still have to vote. It might make a difference. If it doesn’t then, at least it isn’t your fault. This is why the Dem. won the race on Jan. 5th to begin with. Because people like you didn’t vote.

  2. Herschel, you would have my vote all day long Go for it!! Hopefully the illegal voting system will have been changed within each state. Stacy Abrams needs to GO.

  4. Donald Trump has been and is a God-send to America. Hopefully, many of our Democrat friends will see the light and forsake this corrupt and traitorous party.
    My parents were Democrats and never understood it when I left the party and supported Barry Goldwater. However, being good hard working, honest citizens, they would be aghast at the Democrat party of today. Their greed and self centered culture Is akin to treason. If they were smart enough, they would make good Mafia members.
    Some members of congress I once had respect for but no longer. If they had sufficient intelligence to be elected to congress, they should be smart enough to comprehend the corruption in the Democrat party (now from the top-down). Biden and his son should be in jail, along with Hillary Clinton. Wonder how many dead bodies the Clintons are responsible for (including Vince Foster, Ron Brown and those that were murdered in Libya due to Hillary’s stupidity.)
    Should God choose to allow America to survive for another 4 years, maybe the Democrats will be kept at bay for another 20 years so the country can heal.

  5. They won’t get rid of the machines they did exactly what they were made to do and that’s usher in the democraps dream of a Communist America thing we need to fix is federal government like getting rid of Biden,pilosi and Schumer
