A new poll shows Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) Herschel Walker leading in the Georgia Senate runoff, so Republicans have issued an emergency call to halt Saturday’s early voting.
The Republicans of Georgia and the RNC have appealed to the Supreme Court of Georgia:
#BREAK Georgia Republicans and RNC are filing an emergency appeal with the Georgia Supreme Court to stop early voting this Saturday in the second round of the U.S. Senate, to end “illegal early voting.” A judge in Fulton allowed it, and the state appeals court declined to issue a stay.https://t.co/dbMcyB8kRE pic.twitter.com/GlLiKfm8Xb

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on an AARP poll showing why Republicans are trying to suppress the vote:
The poll, commissioned by the AARP, pegged Warnock at 51% and Walker at 47% — within the margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.
Warnock leads voters between the ages of 18 and 49 by a margin of 24 points. But Walker has a 9-point lead among voters over the age of 50. The poll indicates that 90% of those older voters are “extremely motivated.” About three-quarters of voters under the age of 50 say they share that intensity.
The poll also showed that Warnock has a commanding double-digit lead over the Independents, who make up 30% of the electorate in Georgia, so Republicans must find a way to prevent young people, Independents and African Americans from voting in the second round of the Senate. because anything other than a low turnout election means a victory for Senator Warnock.
Republicans like to claim fraud and elections stolen if they lose, but their behavior in Georgia shows a willingness to try and manipulate an electorate to get an ineligible candidate in office.
