Georgia is closely linked to Florida, both geographically and politically. If Georgia votes for Biden, it’s almost certain that Florida will have flipped for the Democrat as well.
Georgia has voted Republican in every election dating back to 1992, when the state supported Bill Clinton. The state also represented one of Trump’s more comfortable leads in the South in 2016.
Voters in Georgia are poised to break 2016 records this year, with the vote as of 3 p.m. Tuesday accounting for 93 per cent of total turnout four years ago.
