Herschel Walker has been going on conservative media (like Fox News) more than any other Republican candidate, and that favorable coverage appears to be paying off. In four of the last five Georgia senate polls, Walker is now shown beating his Democratic opponent Raphael Warnock by about 3 to 4 points. This is bad news for the country, as Walker is one of the least-qualified people to ever run for office. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this.

It may be time to start panicking just a little bit, at least for Democrats in the state of Georgia. Because according to four, out of the last six polls in that state four out of the last six, Herschel Walker is beating Rafael Warnock. Now about a week and a half ago, I talked about one poll, just one at the time that showed Walker beating Warnock by I think it was two to three points, right? And at the time I said, maybe this poll is an outlier. Maybe it's just, you know, something weird happened. And this isn't really what Georgia voters think. But now we got four out of the last six. So this does in fact represent a trend in the state of Georgia with Herschel Walker, winning and Warnock losing support right now. Now it is important to point out that the two poles that show Warnock winning show Warnock actually wiping the floor with Herschel Walker.
One of them an echelon pole has, uh, Warnock up by 10 points. The other one, a very trusted Quinnipiac poll has Warnock up by six points. So the rest of the polls are actually like state run, small polls, local media polls. So there is a big difference of course, from a massive polling operation like Quinnipiac versus, you know, Fox five Atlanta pole of 500 people. But we do need to pay attention to these trends because what's happening with Herschel Walker is that ever since Republicans look down at Georgian realized, holy crap, we've got somebody who can't even string a sentence together. As our candidate, they have been working around the clock to rehab his image. He has been going on Fox news multiple times every single week, Herschel Walker has and being, being, given these absolutely ridiculous softball interviews. You know, some of them edited in advance of course, to make him not look so dumb.
So Fox news has been instrumental in this image rehabilitation of Herschel Walker. Meanwhile, Warnock is getting no coverage at all. I mean, absolutely no national stories about Warnock. Other than these polling stories. He's not going on, uh, you know, corporate media to talk about anything. But Herschel Walker is Herschel. Walker is getting all the attention good or bad. And apparently when it comes to the voters, it's all good. So Warnock needs to step it up. This is an easy, easy race that he is in Herschel Walker should be nowhere near Warnock in the polls. And yet most of the polls now show Walker winning the democratic party has to step it up Warnock and his campaign have to step it up, you know, tremendously, because this is
An easily winnable race. Like you have to try hard to lose to Herschel Walker, but that's the reality in which we're living right now. So again, Warnock needs to step it up because that is a seat that the Democrats absolutely have to retain. It's bad enough. You've got polls in Nevada as well. That show that incumbent democratic Senator, Senator, uh, Catherine Cortez Mato. She is now losing to her Republican challenger. That was a seat Democrats assumed we were also gonna be retaining. So if we lose, lose these two seats, but only gained three, then it's a 51 49 Senate. And suddenly yeah, Joe mansion still has all the power. So does Kirsten cinema. If they, they gang up together, we have to retain these two seats. In addition to winning more, to make people like Joe mansion irrelevant, but a crappy campaign against Herschel Walker. Isn't going to give us that. So Warnock has to step it up the DNCs to step it up.
