The battle for control of the Senate is still on, and it all comes down to Georgia. In his latest episode of The Point on YouTube, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how on January 5, the Peach State will decide which party controls the world’s greatest deliberative body for the next two years.

  1. Hey, Chris here. How closely are you watching these two Senate races?

    • @Kermit T. Frog We all want fair elections where the people elect winners

    • @Kermit T. Frog Trump for another 4 years, ouch that hurts doesnt it?

    • @SGT Gardner u mean bleach right? that’s the only Trump vaccine…scientist developed the Covid vaccines, not anti science Trump

      We mustn’t lose sight of the given facts. They’ll do anything to undermine the will of the American People. Period !!!! And it’s not over just because the country now has a dignified and respectful competent BIDEN Presidency !!! They WILL SHOW and WE MUST DO THE SAME !!! That’s just the simple truth of the matter !!! Their Senate Majority is the cancer that blighted the past four years of our nation with stagnant bad government that barely functions !!! Biden must have a working government with him. America is in badly corrupted and infected shape because of trump and his enablers…

    • @SGT Gardner They actually had the vaccine in January before Trump even got involved, but it has to go through a massive amount of testing before it even gets to human trials

    Dear Georgians: please get out and VOTE in numbers too big to rig and too real to steal. VOTE BLUE and help take back the Senate.

  3. Chris, I am digging that T-shirt!!! “Me, Myself and I – 🥰!!!!

  4. How can purdue even run? He betrayed his constituents and republicans just tried to stage a treasonous coup.

    The most powerful maybe, but the Senate under Mitch McConnell could not be described as “greatest”.

  6. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving everyone….don’t stress over the politics….

  7. Truck Fump.

  9. I’m so happy the cult members threatened Kemp that if he certified the election for Biden they will sit the senate vote out 😁😂

      @June’s Outside Contact Hint: Democrats also gerrymander and suppress voters. Democrats only tried passing election security bills as an FU to Trump; they had no intentions of passing it since multiple Senate democrats refused to vote on it.

      @America First what is disingenuous? Trump’s own mouth uttered ‘if it passed you’d never see a republican elected again’

      The 570-page bill would require states to use paper ballots and establish cybersecurity standards. It would fund grants for states to upgrade voting equipment, train local election officials in cybersecurity, and conduct post-election audits. It also would make registration easier, restore voting rights to ex-felons and designate Election Day a federal holiday
      McConnell killed the bill.

      @America First #1) Youre a Troll. #2) Youre not even American. 3#) In all my years on this earth (As an American citizen), of all the elections (state local and national) that have been held in my lifetime… Only once have I ever felt like there may have been a problem with an election: That was in florida in 2000. Literally 20 years ago. Please note that since the supreme court weakened the laws on Voter Suppression there have been many shenanigans being perpetrated by republican candidates and their intrests. But THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH OUR ELECTION SYSTEM. Donald trump started attacking the system in 2016 when he said that if he didnt win the system was rigged. He won. So any questions about the voting process disappeared. He started this new campaign against the voting process when he saw that states were going to send ballots to all their citizens. Not a peep about voter fraud until it looked like he was gonna lose. With all the Democrats that lost in 2020…. can you find EVEN ONE that claimed voter fraud? Absolutely not. So take that buhshyt youre talking back across the pond. The trump experiment is over. Period.

  10. I cant beleive that sane honest working people Look at a crook like Perdue and say yeah I want that guy to represent us…

      I feel bad for Bernie, AOC, and their crew….they were played like fools by Joe’s corporate machine🤭

    • @MSMliestothe Puppets 100 times better then 45s picks and at least people with brains can see the light now

      I have so much confidence in Stacey Abrams that I worry very little about losing it to those 2 criminals. Her and her gang of patriots won Georgia once this years. Republicans are sorry they robbed Stacey of her election.

    • They probably don’t but the republicans have gerrymandered the hell out of voting in red states to help keep them in. Georgia will have to rise up and vote in huge numbers to prevent them from stealing the election.

  11. Chris… you forgot another Georgia song. “Midnight Train to Georgia.” 🚉

      A wonderful illegal with moral values:
      A Norcross man is facing a charge of first-degree vehicular homicide after being accused of causing a crash that left a 12-year-old girl dead in DeKalb County, authorities said.

      Eric Cirildo Rodriguez, 42, is also being charged with hit-and-run resulting in serious injury or death and acquiring a license plate for the purpose of concealing identification of a motor vehicle, according to DeKalb jail records. Amiah Shontae’ Kenney Jackson, a seventh grader at Pinckneyville Middle School, was killed in the wreck. Please save my state, too many illegals here and taking all jobs! 😡😡 vote for Purdue please! 🎚🎚🎚

      Betty Williams Bye Betty..

  13. Georgia!!!!! I don’t care what Perdue is what party.. he’s no good he’s just NO GOOD!!

  14. This election is the longest Monty Python movie ever.

  15. It’s about time. Georgians do the right thing, get the rich and corrupted two out. Need a couple of fresh faces to truly represent YOU.

  16. 2 Honest & Talented Individuals Vs. 2 Criminals , deceiving innocent Americans of lives.
    This is the fight to save the soul, decency, stop Criminals participating in Senate.

    Trump’s out and let Mitch McConnell be next. No more deception or enabling corrupt Republicans.

  18. Just imagine how the lives of every American could be improved if both parties spent as much money working for the people as they spend on trying to rule the people.

    • Go read all of Trumps accomplishments first and get informed.

    • @Damir Lomota Yes, he managed to undo much of the progress made by previous administrations and by Obama in particular. We all know how butt hurt he was after Obama and Seth Meyers humiliated him and Trump’s presidency has all been about that moment.

      @Damir Lomota the list is long and impressive , BUT liberals are interested in only communism and perversions . trump does not go to war they criticize. of course if he did start a war they would call him a war monger . etc etc .
