  1. I pray to god that they both win

  2. Way too close to say who won.
    I just don’t understand why anyone would vote the gop candidates in. They both are corrupt people who do nothing for their constituents!

    • Religion and hate are great motivators

    • @TOLA KANN your correct, this isn’t about them as individuals, the Republicans are trying to hold onto the senate no matter how despicable the candidates are.

      How so?! The remaining votes come from HEAVILY DEMOCRATIC AREAS in Georgia! ITS A WIN/WIN FOR THE DEMOCRATS!!! 💥💣

    • Because something in the South fries people’s brain cells.

      I will never ever vote for the Republicans, but I see why others might.

      1- Republicans have an image as stronger leaders because of their nationalistic tone vs. the Dems’ laissez faire attitude, which endears them to rural voters and nationalists.
      2- They’re more openly Christian, oppose abortion, LGBTQ marriage, legal marijuana etc. which makes them attractive to rural voters and conservative religious communities.
      3- Some people were really concerned about Democratic control of the presidency, House and Senate all at the same time because they fear leftist/communist takeovers. This is particularly appealing to people who tend to have a very broad definition of “communism”, especially some older citizens.
      4- Their take on small government and tax cuts for the affluent make them an attractive choice for the suburban rich.
      5- Unlike the Democrats, their base is very tolerant when they go extreme in their right-wing policies, allowing them to target the far-right vote without losing their original supporters.
      6- Their anti-immigration stance is extremely appealing to nationalistic and/or less educated individuals who feel threatened by immigration because the immigrants might take their jobs.

      That’s quite a few people they appeal to.

    Perdue is an incumbent and Loeffler attacked the black church
    Why are people surprised she is behind

  4. I don’t see why this is a surprise for anyone. Warnock was running against a robot billionaire lizard.

  5. How and why is this so close? Those two Republicans don’t even deserve their seats.

  6. It doesn’t surprise me that Loeffler isn’t popular. She was appointed, and didn’t earn her wings to make it to the senate

      Thanks but I don’t open fowards. I’m sure it’s interesting.

      Let’s hope Biden will realize his power. The Freedom/faith?breakfast club has become greedy, dangerously authoritarian with the goal of one party only America. Ingnore that dirty dozen 👎The Bipartisan Working Caucus can work together, for the people and UNITED💜Stay strong Joe.

      I see I’m not the only one that doesn’t care too much for that purple guy Mitch…his name becomes him

    • Achilles137AB | January 6, 2021 at 5:46 AM | Reply

      You can have Mitch. Much like your commie political group… He sold out to china.

    • @Shubham Sagar Singh we love him here in kentucky

  12. You know I’m watching Map Daddy. I wonder why GA would elect Biden only to block him in the Senate.

    • Because while they think trump isnt president material doesnt mean they disagree with local politicians.. plus you know they said in georgia it’s harder to get certain people to vote twice so close

    • Samantha Boyer | January 6, 2021 at 3:21 AM | Reply

      Many people are stupid and vote like morons. That’s why Warnock won by enough and Ossoff will squeak by.

    • Anthony Mordawski | January 6, 2021 at 3:27 AM | Reply

      I am not American but British living in Azerbaijan but watching this with great interest Steve did explain Republican voters in November voted Biden but voted for their state rep split voting even I understand

    • @Samantha Boyer the next few years are going to be hard for you. Might be good to turn the tv off, put a mask on and go for a walk. And please don’t wear that silly magat hat again, we already know you are a loser.

  13. Loeffler lost a vote for every time she used the term “radical liberal”

  14. This makes me nauseous. I only want to know about the final results. It’s like the election 2.0.

  15. I wish Steve would take a breath once in a while. 😬 But, Democracy for the win!

    He has just won the race. Thank you Georgia! Jon Ossoff is next……let’s go Georgia.

    Mitch “The Corpse” McConnell is finally gonna be laid to rest……..🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣!!!!!!!

    • @Oscar Martinez The senate already invoked the “nuclear option” to pass anything with a simple majority instead of 60/40 to prevent filibusters on supreme court nominations, and there’s a lot of conjecture about whether they can do so again to remove the ability to filibuster/cloture at all. It’s always progress up and until the moment it’s not, and if you’re supporting the current direction at the very least, we have to be the ones to grab the party and make it our own over the next few years.

      @Oscar Martinez
      The democrats might vote to end the archaic concept of the Fillibuster

    • Jamell Foster | January 6, 2021 at 4:47 AM | Reply

      I hope so… Ms. Thing McConnell needs to disappear & stop gnawing on Trump’s ballsack…

    • Back to the swamp🐸🐸🐸! Do you think he ate Pence’s fly?

    • @Jamell Foster George Kirby was a criminal

    Billionaire Loeffler’s pandering with her red Walmart jacket, baseball cap and denim shirt insulted some Georgian voters.

  19. Not many people know this but the party in power gets to choose what desserts are served in the Senate Cafeteria.
    Democrats means puddings and pies. Republicans sugar free Jello…..

  20. Lol. Everyone was still so scared when this aired.
