Though the Democratic candidate has unquestioned strength within what should be a Republican district, the polarization is still striking, and the results do contain encouraging trends for Republican Karen Handel. The Democratic share for Ossoff reports to be 99:1%, an almost shockingly high ratio. Handel, though, scores 91% support among Republicans, a good sign for her after the primary vote revealed Republicans were split among many candidates. Additionally, she scores a 52-43% lead among the Independents, yet another positive sign for Ms. Handel.
The results continue to show that whichever party can best deliver their voters to the polls on June 20th and in the preceding early voting period will win the electoral contest. The April 18th jungle primary drew 192,052 voters, an unbelievably high total for a special election.
