More than 1.3 million voters in Georgia have cast their ballots in early voting in the run-off elections for the Senate, scheduled for January 5.
In an analysis of voter data in Georgia, the Washington Post said the numbers favored Democrats in early voting.
However, the newspaper indicated, on the other hand, that the Republicans are narrowing the gap as the election battle rages on for the two seats, which may upset the balance and determine the fate of the Biden administration and its ability to implement its promises for the next two years.
The current data indicates that the Republican Party is currently ahead of the Democrats by 50 votes to 48 in the Senate, which means that they need to win at least one of the remaining two seats to ensure the decisive 51 percent.
In the event that the Republicans lose the two seats to the Democrats, the two parties will be drawn 50/50 each. But the Democrats would legally have a majority in this case given the likely vote enjoyed by the speaker and vice president-elect, Kamala Harris.
A week ago, US President-elect Joe Biden went to Georgia to support its two Democratic candidates, Raphael Warnock and John Usoff, for the two state seats in the Senate.
Biden called at the time to turn the page on the presidential elections, and to seek unity and solidarity.
