We exaggerate just a little sometimes.

Georgia is one of the United States of America. Right above Florida unless your map is upside down, Georgia is part of The South, and is called the Empire State of the South. Traditionally, when Election Day came rolling around, they painted Georgia red, which means that the Neocons had taken it over but this may change. [1] In the 2008 and 2012 elections, the Republican candidate just barely won it, making it a Swing state.

Georgia is a founding member of both the United States and the Confederate States of America.

Georgia has nearly 10 million people with about 2 thirds white and 3 tenths black, the remainder are minorities or Mixed race. 14% are considered poor.     

However, Georgia also produced Liberals like Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King Jr. Surprisingly, Georgia was one of the few states that that was smart enough to not vote for Ronald Reagan in 1980, but they changed their minds in 1984 and, except for when Bill Clinton won it in 1992, have voted for the Republican candidate ever since.

Atlanta is its capital and is more progressive than the rest of Georgia, though it hasn't been right since Sherman burned it. It also has the world's busiest airport, serving over 104 million passengers in 2016 [2]. The closest place that could be considered progressive is Chattanooga.

Georgia is also a country bordering Russia but that's a different Georgia.

Elections

2020 Election

In the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, Democratic candidate Joe Biden won Georgia by less than 1% over illegitimate President Donald Trump. This is the first time that a Democrat has won the state of Georgia in a presidential election since Bill Clinton in 1992. Trump demanded a recount, which resulted in Georgia Democrats watching Trump lose Georgia twice.

Senate elections

The Senate seats were also up for election in a run-off election on January 5, 2021. The election featured Republican incumbent Senators Kelly Loefhler and David Perdue versus Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock. Warnock and Ossoff both won, the Senate will be split 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie for the Democrats, effectively giving the Democrats the very thin control of the Senate.
