According to a new poll from Emerson College, Herschel Walker has built a four-point lead over incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock. The University of Georgia football legend still has to beat multiple primary challengers in order to challenge Warnock in November, though most primary polls have Walker up big.

The latest Emerson College/The Hill Georgia poll, which was conducted from April 1-3, shows Herschel Walker expanding his lead over Warnock. Walker now leads the incumbent by four points, which shows improvement from a January Quinnipiac poll that had Walker leading by one.

According to the poll, Herschel Walker garnered 49% of the vote to Warnock’s 45%. A further 6% remain undecided.

Walker — who won a Heisman Trophy with the University of Georgia before playing in the NFL — has a commanding lead in most polls of the state’s GOP Senate primary race. Herschel Walker led in Emerson College’s poll with 57% of the vote while just 16% remain undecided. His next closest competitor, Gary Black, polled at 16%.

Former President Trump has described Walker as a “close friend” and encouraged him to run for the seat. The two first became acquainted in 1983, when Trump was the owner of a football team in the short-lived United States Football League (USFL).

Billed as an NFL competitor, the USFL gained leverage after it allowed college football players to turn pro after their junior year, which was not allowed at the time. Walker, who wanted to get his pro career rolling early, ultimately signed with the Trump-owned New Jersey Generals in 1984. He was later a candidate on the Trump-hosted “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The football legend supported Trump’s campaigns for President in 2016 and 2020 and has frequently been the target of racist attacks from the radical left. He recently expressed outrage over an op-ed titled “The Herschel Walker Senate Campaign Is an Insult to Black People”, which was penned by far-left MSNBC contributor Elie Mystal. In it he described Walker as “an animated caricature of a Black person drawn by white conservatives.”
