In real-time, Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams’ current campaign to be governor of Georgia is wrapping up. She previously ran for the Georgia governor’s office in 2018, doing so against now-incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA).
Abrams’ campaign is linked to all sorts of controversies, whether it is her lying about abortion or being dishonest about Georgia’s voting laws. Despite all the money she has managed to bring in from left-wing liberals across the country, the people of Georgia will have the final say.
Thus far, Georgia residents are showing they feel good about Kemp and ready to reelect him. Already, Abrams is sharing her own version of events as to why she is losing yet another governor’s race.
In 2018, when Abrams lost to Kemp, she claimed that voter suppression was the underlying culprit. This go-round, the Georgia Democrat is pointing the finger at black men.
During an interview just days ago, Abrams alleged that black male Georgia voters have been uniquely targeted with so-called “misinformation.” In making this allegation, Abrams also said this misinformation targeting black men pertains to “what they deserve.”

This confused many Americans — both in and out of Georgia — but that did not stop Abrams from continuing to double down. The Democratic candidate said her campaign is the only one in this election that has engaged in grassroots outreach.
Objectively, this claim is just not true. The Kemp campaign continues to travel all across Georgia to let voters know why they should reelect the current governor.
Abrams’ messages and policies, on the other hand, are not resonating with Georgia voters.
Game Over For Abrams
Since entering into the general election, Kemp has maintained a consistent lead over Abrams. From the looks of things, the Georgia governor was correct when he said he could defeat Abrams for a second time in a row.
Now, a new poll by Remington shows Kemp carrying a 14% lead over Abrams with merely days left until Election Day. This double-digit lead also takes the Georgia governor fairly over the 50% mark.

When Kemp is reelected as Georgia’s governor, it remains to be seen how Abrams responds. So far, the Georgia Democrat is still running with the narrative of laws in the state suppressing the vote.
Abrams is sticking with this narrative despite record early voting turnout levels, increased minority voter participation, and the dismissal of her voter fraud lawsuit by an Obama-appointed judge.
