Fifty-five percent of “very conservative” voters who are not casting ballots in the Georgia runoffs say the process is rigged, according to a SurveyUSA-WXIA poll.

The runoffs are Tuesday. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., is facing Democrat Jon Ossoff in one election. The other runoff has Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., competing with Raphael Warnock.

Here are how the results break down:

  • 14% of the very conservative voters not voting say they don’t have the time.
  • 12% don’t believe their vote matters.
  • 7% say they are not casting their ballots because they’re intentionally boycotting the runoffs.
  • 35% of liberals not voting say their vote doesn’t matter.
  • 22% don’t like the candidates.
  • 0% claimed the process was rigged.

The poll, conducted Dec. 16-20, surveyed 800 voting-aged Georgia residents.
