According to a poll by Insider Advantage and FOX 5 Atlanta on Monday evening, Warnock is two points ahead of Loeffler. The same poll shows that 47% of the votes are for Loeffler, while 49% support the Reverend. Only 3% of voters are undecided.
The race between Senator David Perdue and fellow Democratic contender Jon Ossoff is also close. According to the poll, Ossoff has 48% of the voters, while Perdue holds 49%.
Republicans get the white vote, while Democratic candidates get support from independent voters and those under 40, the poll shows.
Rev. Raphael Warnock has a slight advantage over Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler.
Matt Towery, the founder of Insider Advantage who conducted the survey, says early Democratic turnout is essential due to the potential of bad weather.
"Atlanta is notorious for ice storms this time of year," Towery said. "This is why both parties are pushing so hard that people vote early and vote absent."
And the residents of Georgia took advantage of the early voting.
As reported by theGrio, the state had a significant turnout prior to the elections. 1,470,764 Georgian voters have already cast their votes via postal votes and early personal voting.

By Huff Post, Democrats must win both seats to split the Senate evenly. Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris sets out to support the Democratic candidates. After taking office next month, if the Senate is evenly split between Democratic and Republican lawmakers, Harris will have the groundbreaking vote and ultimately give Democrats control of the Chamber.
