Two pro-life Republicans in key U.S. Senate run-off races are leading their pro-abortion Democrat opponents narrowly in a new poll.
The Georgia races between U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock and U.S. Sen. David Perdue and pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff will determine which party holds power of the Senate in 2021. While both Loeffler and Perdue received more votes that their Democrat challengers Nov. 3, they did not meet the 50-percent threshold required to win. That put both their races into a January run-off election.
Newsweek reports a new Remington Research Group poll shows Perdue and Loeffler are ahead but only by small margins.
According to the poll, voters chose Perdue over Ossoff by 50 percent to 46 percent; an additional 4 percent were undecided. The poll found Loeffler had a 1-percent lead over Warnock (49 percent to 48 percent); 3 percent of voters remain undecided.
Democrats had the edge in the Atlanta metropolitan area, while Republicans led by approximately 20 percentage points in other parts of the state. There was also a double-digit gender gap, with women overwhelmingly favoring Democrats and men largely supporting the Republicans.
Independent voters, who used to reliably choose Republican in the state, are currently roughly evenly split.

The races are critical for the future of unborn babies and mothers. If pro-abortion Democrat Joe Biden is confirmed as the presidential winner and Democrats take control of the Senate, there would be nothing to stop them from passing radical pro-abortion laws that allow unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to fund their deaths. Democrat leaders also could pack the U.S. Supreme Court with activist judges who would keep abortion on demand legal for decades.
Currently, Republicans have a small majority in the U.S. Senate. If both Democrats defeat the Republican incumbents in Georgia, the Senate would be split evenly and the vice president, presumably pro-abortion radical Kamala Harris, would cast the tie-breaking vote.
Campaign rallies and election ads already are running across Georgia, and prominent political figures from both parties plan to campaign there, according to Newsmax.
Perdue and Loeffler both have a 100-percent pro-life rating from the National Right to Life Committee. Perdue, who has served since 2015, voted in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act. Loeffler, who took office earlier this year, also co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Their Democrat opponents, Ossoff and Warnock, are pro-abortion, and they have the support of the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Warnock, a pastor, said he believes that his pro-abortion position is “consistent” with the Bible. In August, he told podcast host Tim Bryan that the decision to abort an unborn baby should be up to a woman “and her doctor and her minister.”
If elected, Warnock and Ossoff could help Democrat leaders achieve their goal of forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions, packing the Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and forcing states to allow viable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.
Meanwhile, the pro-life Women Speak Out PAC plans to spend $4 million to support Perdue and Loeffler.
“We are going all in for pro-life champions Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue,” said Mallory Quigley, national spokeswoman for the pro-life PAC. “The outcomes of these races will determine the fate of the U.S. Senate and our nation.”
