Both of those margins are considerably wider than the margin by which Biden beat Trump.

FWIW, 4,999,960 people in Georgia voted in the Presidential election (including those who voted for other candidates) and 4,484,902 and 4,484,954 voted in the senate runoffs. A bit more than half a million fewer. But in the past, the lower turnout tended to favor Republicans. This time, the margin increased in favor of Democrats.
