With 4% undecided, she'd need to win 3/4 of the undecided voters to get 50%.

I'm going to be pissed if Nunn gets 49.99% on election day and then loses the runoff.

I think this 1) shows Georgia is changing but 2) more importantly shows that the right kind of centrist Democrat (the kind the red avatars on this board will be frustrated with once they reach DC) can still win in the South.  I actually think Nunn pulls this out; her dad was a legend.

With 4% undecided, she'd need to win 3/4 of the undecided voters to get 50%.

There's probably an extra point there with the Libertarian at 4%. Usually L candidates in GA end up in the 2-3% range. Some of that support would likely align more with the Republican (at least traditionally).

You're talking small percentage points here, but it would matter in a race that close where you are trying to avoid a runoff.

However, the race is definitely slightly leaning Nunn at this point. At 47 though, you'd probably be seeing a runoff. She probably needs a 3-4 point lead in these polls to get to 50% + 1.

I don' think this is so much about changing demographics in the state as it is Nunn being a totally different democrat than the national party.

Demos are changing slightly in GA like they did in North Carolina & VA, just not as fast.

However, I agree with you that Nunn is a strong candidate with a positive last name and probably outperforming.

Perdue seems like a bad candidate also. I would think he outsourcing comment is hurting him a few % points.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first Insider Advantage poll showing Nunn with a lead?

Yes. And this year, they've been, on average, slightly more republican than other GA polls....

There's a 95% chance that will happen.

I think she'll get to a runoff. They'll both get under 50% and the real race will be 2 months away.

But damn, this turned into a toss-up pretty quick.

This seems like it might be the lone Senate race where there has been D improvement recently. Still out to lunch on SD.

If Perdue didn't mess up so much (terriorist ad, outsourcing), he might still have the 5 to 6 point leads he had in September. Perdue's not a bad candidate, he just doesn't know how to campaign.

The republicans probably should have nominated Kingston. Maybe even Handel.

I agree with you that Nunn will pull it out, but your reasoning will be that GA is turning into the next IL or NY with the metro area - in all its cosmopolitan sophistication Tongue - provides the margin of victory.  But I think it's simply that Nunn is a centrist Democrat with a famous last name, and those Democrats can absolutely still win in the South, even the Old South.  As soon as Obama leaves office, it'll be even easier.

While Perdue isn't a good campaigner, I think Nunn would be in a somewhat stronger position had Kingston been nominated. Handel might have been a slightly better pick than Perdue or Kingston, but that could just be my strong bias for Handel.

Why? I gotta agree with Kondik here.

Getting votes from ancestral Democrats in Middle and South Georgia is key to Nunn getting those last few points, and Kingston could have made that difficult for Nunn.
