One takeaway from the results tonight is that Republican fears seem to have materialized when it came to runoff turnout. They were concerned that their base voters might not be as motivated to turn out because of Trump’s rhetoric surrounding election fraud and the legitimacy of the vote in November. There was a lag in early voting in heavily Republican areas, such as northwest Georgia, so the GOP hoped that Election Day turnout would make up for it. However, if we look at counties where 99 percent of the expected vote has been reported, it seems Republicans were right to be worried.
