Republican Herschel Walker has taken a three-point lead over incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock in Georgia's crucial U.S. Senate race, Fox News reported, citing a new poll from InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta.

What are the details?

The poll indicates Walker is receiving 47% support while Warnock is receiving 44% support, Fox News said.

Those numbers represent a two-point increase for Walker and a four-point decrease for Warnock over a July poll, which the cable network said demonstrates a major shift in the race just two months before the midterm elections.

Walker appeared Wednesday on Fox News' "Hannity" and explained where he believes the boost in support is coming from.

"The reason is I'm getting out and meeting the people, and I'm talking to the people, and the people are speaking," Walker told host Sean Hannity. "You know, they've spent over $50 million against me, but the race is still tied."

The "Hannity" show referenced an Emerson College poll conducted in late August showing Walker up by two points over Warnock, 46% to 44%, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 points. Fox News said the InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta survey was conducted Sept. 6 and 7 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 points.

InsiderAdvantage chairman Matt Towery said alongside the poll results that "Warnock is winning among younger voters and seniors but trails badly among those 40-64. Men support Walker at 60%, while women support Warnock at 55%. Walker is receiving 12% support from African American respondents. With only 4% undecided, this race could very well be headed to a General Election runoff given the fact that there seems to be few points among the various demographics up for grabs," the cable network reported.

Warnock agreed to debate Walker in October, Fox News added.

"People want a change in Washington. Senator Warnock is a cut from the cloth of Joe Biden. And what I mean by that is he believes in higher taxes, he believes in open borders, he voted to put men in women's sports. And that's not what the Georgian people want," Walker added to Hannity. "The Georgian people want someone they can trust, and they can trust in Herschel Walker."

Anything else?

The InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta poll also shows Georgia's incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, leading Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams, Fox News said.

"Kemp leads in every age group in the survey. He receives right at 10% of African American support and a rather astounding 68% of white voters surveyed," Towery said, according to the cable network. "Abrams has an impressive 54% of female voters, while Kemp receives 63% from men."
