Internal Poll Shows Doug Collins With Huge Lead in Georgia Senate Race

An internal poll shows Georgia Rep. Doug Collins with a substantial lead in the Peach State’s GOP primary for U.S. Senate against Sen. Kelly Loeffler. 

Collins, known for his outspoken defense of President Trump, cemented his reputation by leading the fight against impeachment as one of the House managers.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) appointed Loeffler last December. One month later, she attended a closed-door briefing as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee on the emerging COVID-19 outbreak. According to public financial transaction disclosures, she then dumped millions in stock, including shares in retail and travel companies, and bought shares in telecommuting software and Dupont, which manufactures medical supplies.

The reports have to lead to sharp criticism and allegations of insider trading by multiple United States senators. Loeffler has denied any wrongdoing.

WATCH:

The Hill’s John Bowden has more:

A Battleground Connect survey, which was conducted internally for the Collins campaign and first reported by Politico, revealed that 36 percent of likely voters support Collins, who has represented the 9th District in Georgia since 2013, for the Senate seat currently held by Loeffler, who was appointed by Gov. Brian Kemp (R) following the resignation of former Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) late last year over health issues. 

Loeffler, with 13 percent support in the poll, currently trails both Collins and a Democratic opponent, pastor Raphael Warnock of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, who registered support from 16 percent of voters.

Matt Lieberman, a Democrat and the son of former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), came in fourth place in the poll, sitting at 11 percent. No other candidate registered double-digit support in the survey.

The Battleground Connect survey contacted 1,035 likely voters between March 31 and April 1. The poll has a margin of error of 3.01 percentage points.

  1. Loeffler is an Insider Trader, a treasonous vicious creep and should’ve never been sent to the Senate from South Carolina or anywhere else. – How COULD Nikki Haley support that thing !!!
    That rich plantation owner, Senator Clyburn, won’t stand for Doug’s high marks even if it is two Republicans involved against one another and Nance the Ripper Pelosi is giving that charlatan full rein over anything he can do to harm Republicans so Doug Collins is in need of round the clock protection, by Trump’s team of Blackwater who protect him as well as the Secret Service we citizens pay for.

    • Permit me to guess, Sirdickfan, you are a either an Anarchist, Socialist, Paid Democrat, Communist, LGBTQ member, Racist, or just someone who would exculpate Hillary and the entire Clinton Crime Family, the Biden Institute of Mental Defectives, and every millionaire Democrat who just did the same thing.

      Nevertheless, Loeffler smells very bad for having profited so ostentatiously.

    • Sirdirkfan, are you being facetious, or do you truly not know that a Senator from GA is not representing SC? Also SC’s Nikki Haley is not involved in the GA race, nor is Jim Clyburn a senator from GA. On second thought, you’re so off-base you MUST be joking…

    • Stupidity has no limits, just when you think it can get no higher along comes someone like you to prove me wrong. I think the other commentators covered this good enough.

  2. Politicians in D.C. have benefitted from insider trading for decades. It is ILLEGAL for US but as usual they gave themselves an exemption from the laws that we are supposed to obey. As someone said a few years back when these politicians were ranting about Trump’s tax returns.

    “I am less concerned about the tax returns of a billionaire who became a politician than I am about the tax returns of a politician who became a millionaire.”

    • You’re reading my mind. I was about to send in a comment stating the same things. Not only insider trading going on, but Government contract favoritism as well. The Washongton swamp is deep, wide and stinks to high Heaven!

  3. Mike, you are spot on! The far left, radical, lying libtards damn sure know that President Trump will be re-elected this year & they are trying to do anything & everything to stop him knnowing that they can’t stop him. They also know that the American people now know just how despicable they are & will loose their grip & power for 1 a decade or longer. Just saying!!!!

  4. Pelosi needs to think about Americans especially citizens who pay there taxes and stop the bullshit and resign because she’s a wacko with a case of greedy money hungry pocket liners like some politicians that I don’t need to mention. Step down Pelosi get off your high horse because you’re out of touch I can tell just by looking at you

  5. Yep I may be old but I remember her smiley face bragging about how she had invested $1000 and in 1 week made $10,000. And we would be in jail even at that time! QUOTE! NO ONE IS ABOVE the LAW! Except the rats with nasty nancy leading the pack! OH, forgot she is a good catholic! Lying WITCH with A B!

  6. Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp installed Kelly Loeffler in the Senate against the will of the people of Georgia. Why? Because her husband is a rich Jewish guy named Jeffrey Sprecher who heads the NY Stock Exchange. A Jewish liberal would never get elected in Georgia so….he had his wife ‘installed’ by a weasel Governor. I voted for Kemp over Stacy Abrams because she is a RACIST…..but I urge a true CONSERVATIVE to challenge Kemp next time…..he has shown that he can be bought…..

  7. These treasonous hypocrite libs(lying sack of Schiff) don’t know the meaning of the truth! They are at it again and just as mentally deranged as the rest of the Globalists NAZI Muslim Commie Liberal Demoncrats! Deep State, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Hollywood, Academia, MSM Fox and the rest of Fake News, Swamp News and you know the rest!! ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these lying Fake News deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs (Mutt Romney, Susan Collins, Lindsey Grahams ,Murkowski, Justice Roberts, Bolton and you know the rest of the traitors) post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  8. Tucker Carlson missed the opportunity to ask Sen. Loeffler one important question: Did you have any contact, by phone, in person, by email, or by written contact with your portfolio manager following the closed-door Senate briefing, prior to the massive sell-off of your stocks?
