( – A political action committee (PAC) connected to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) found in a poll that former President Donald Trump was not performing as well as he might have hoped within the state.

The Hardworking Americans Inc. survey found that Trump and President Biden were pretty much tied up in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election match, as 42 percent of Georgia residents claimed they would support Trump, while 41.4 percent would support Biden.

What was even more peculiar in this poll though was that a generic Republican candidate managed to lead Biden by 10 points in a hypothetical matchup, with 48 percent of voters supporting the Republican.

Cody Hall, the executive director of Hardworking Americans, stated that in order for someone to win the White House they needed to go through Georgia and that if a candidate wins the Republican nomination who is going to struggle with securing a general election win, then that could mean the end of their presidential ambitions.

On Saturday, Trump is scheduled to appear at the Georgia Republican Convention, an event that will not be attended by Kemp and many other top officials in the state. Kemp and former President Trump have had a public feud ever since Trump tried to pressure Kemp into overturning the presidential election results in his state.

Trump, in his attempts to overturn the Georgia election, would eventually contact Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and ask him to “find” 11,780 more votes so that he could win.

In the 2022 election, Trump supported Georgia Sen. David Perdue who attempted to take Kemp’s seat. However, Kemp won the reelection with 50 points.
