In the other race, at the time of writing, Jon Ossoff is reportedly leading the vote over David Perdue. Should Ossoff win then control of the senate will transfer to the Democrats for the first time since 2015.
Should this happen it just another blemish on Trump’s legacy as president as the Republican vote appears to have continued to crumble following his loss at the 2020 presidentical election to Joe Biden.
With all this in mind, there has been a fair bit of schadenfreude aimed at Trump and other prominent Republicans like Mitch McConnell following the results as people often love nothing better that trolling the POTUS and the GOP.
Mitch McConnell who could lose his role as the Senate majority leader was a major target for jokes.

There is a huge amount of love and support for Warnock who will become just the eleventh Black senator in US history.
There is also some love for Ossoff who appears to be something of a Pitchfork-music-hipster type.
Former Georgia politician and activist Stacey Abrams, who has been crediting with mobilising a lot of the votes for Democrats in the state, has also been given the loving meme treatment.
This tweet from South Carolina senator Lindsay Graham continues to be a source of great enjoyment for many.
The soundtrack at the Georgia GOP election party really summed up the mood.
