In a rerun of the election from 2018, Republican incumbent Governor Brian Kemp is predicted to win convincingly over Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams, according to the results of several final polls for the gubernatorial contest in Georgia in 2022.
According to the polling average compiled by RealClearPolitics, Kemp is currently ahead of Abrams by 8.3 points. According to the most recent and concluding poll for this race conducted by the Trafalgar Group, the incumbent governor has a chance of winning by a margin of nearly nine points over his challengers. In this poll, which was conducted between November 4 and November 6, 52.6% of respondents confirmed that they would vote for Kemp. Only 43.7% of respondents who replied to Trafalgar said that they would support Abrams in the election.
A portion of Monday was spent by Kemp in Macon, Georgia, where he made his final pitch for re-election to voters in a county that voted for Abrams in 2018 by a margin of 62.89% to 36.90%.
During the course of one of his stops in the region, Kemp was quoted as having said, It's been our honor, working hard every single day for the residents of Georgia. To tell you the truth, things have been looking up for us in our state since we rejected Stacey Abrams as our governor candidate.
Abrams has criticized Kemp for reopening Georgia's economy and schools during the pandemic.

The governor, for his part, has justified his actions while simultaneously criticizing Abrams for the pro-lockdown statements that she has taken.
We said 'no' when she chastised me for reopening some areas of our economy back when the epidemic was going on, he added Monday, claiming that he was just providing Georgians the freedom to decide for themselves and provide them with the chance to live to fight yet another day and go back to work.
In addition to this, Kemp alluded to the prosperous state of Georgia's economy as evidence that he had made the proper decision about the 2020 election.
In addition, Kemp criticized national Democrats for their inaction on the negative effects of inflation. He asserted that the two most important concerns on the minds of voters are the state of the economy and the fight against crime.
He continued by saying, "Well, I think it's a pocketbook election as well as an election about public safety." People are having trouble making ends meet, and sixty percent of Americans are living week-to-week as a direct result of Joe Biden's forty-year high inflation and the crisis at the petrol pump, which has caused them to spend more money on their family vehicles or their business vehicles.
The polls in Georgia began at 7:00 am Eastern Time and will remain open until 7:00 pm. As a result of Kemp's signing of the voting reform bill in 2021, electoral officials will now be expected to tally the votes continuously throughout the night without taking breaks. This could imply both Abrams and Kemp will get to bed quite early on election night.
