Observations and Insights

Kemp has been an object of Scorn for Trump after the 2020 election owing to the vote-counting controversy in Georgia that Trump thought was stolen from him. By backing former senator David Perdue, Trump hoped to take revenge against the Governor.

Kemp has used his 20 years of experience in state politics to his advantage. Over the last 12 months, Kemp consolidated his position further by focussing on
– Election Integrity Act 2021
– Jobs (The Rivian Plant)
– Law that allows gun owners to bypass getting a permit
– Income Tax refunds for Georgia’s taxpayers
– Pay raises and bonuses for those working in the education sector
– Running a campaign to reduce crime
– Supporting a parents’ bill of rights that gives parents a greater say in their kid’s education

Stacey Abrams has maintained a relative silence focussing on Fundraising and meeting and talking to voters. Stacey Abrams has one advantage, she is seen far more positively on Social Media than Brian Kemp. The real challenge for her will be to expand in the middle and outside traditional progressive issues to win many of the Independent voters who shifted from Trump to Biden. With Biden in serious trouble, that would be a huge challenge.

The rapid diversification of Georgia has made it a battleground as many educated professionals populate the Atalanta metro area that has boomed in population this century. The suburban counties (Gwinnett and Cobb) around Atalanta are now extremely diverse and have swung Democratic giving Biden nearly 20 point margins after voting for a Republican as President as late as 2012. These form a part of the “New South” and will likely decide this race.
