ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Republican candidate Herschel Walker says he’s not losing the U.S. Senate race and took issue with an 11Alive poll this week that showed Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock nine points ahead of him.

Part of Walker’s appeal to Republicans who urged him to run in the U.S. Senate race was his potential to strip Black voting strength away from Sen. Raphael Warnock. Both candidates are African American.

If Walker could sway enough Black voters --- who historically tend to vote Democratic -- he could win the Senate race. 11Alive's poll, commissioned through SurveyUSA, not only shows Walker behind Warnock by nine points overall; it also shows Warnock overwhelmingly has the support of Black voters.

Data shows Warnock with 85 percent of Black voters responding to the poll, 5 percent said they supported Walker. Read more.
