Leftist Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock have taken the lead in their respective Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections according to a poll released Tuesday by the Trafalgar Group.

Ossoff, running against incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue took the lead in the past two weeks of December. In a Trafalgar poll released December 18 Perdue led Ossoff 50.2% to 47.5%. Now Ossoff leads Perdue 50.4% to 47.7%.

The news is just as bad for incumbent Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler. In the December 18 poll Loeffler led Warnock 52.2% to 45.5%. Now Warnock leads Loeffler 49.6% to 48.8%. The poll has a margin of error of 2.99% with a 95% confidence, however the shift to both Democrats indicates a trend in their favor.

Trafalgar’s chief pollster Robert Cahaly said the shift was due to the failure of Loeffler and Perdue to support President Trump’s call for $2000 pandemic relief stimulus checks like Ossoff and Warnock did. Loeffler and Perdue both came out in support of the $2000 payments Tuesday morning: “So as it turns out, GOP Senators not immediately backing @realDonaldTrump’s call to raise the payments from $600 to $2k the day before Christmas Eve isn’t something #swingvoters like very much.”

President Trump will be holding a campaign rally with Loeffler and Perdue on Monday, January 4 in Dalton, Georgia. (Tickets.)

A record 2.3 million runoff votes have already been cast in early voting in Georgia, beating the record set in 2008.

Early voting in Georgia started on December 14
