In a moment of pessimism yesterday, I called the race for Jim Marshall.
I’ve received a lot of flack for that, and I still trend that way. However, in trying to help a friend get some substantive polling numbers, I have discovered that this race is way too damn close to call. So close, in fact, that some polls have Mac a point ahead of Jim and others have Jim a point ahead of Mac. That close. Unfortunately, all the polls are internal polls and are not publicly released.
This race is so close, in fact, that George Bush is going to make a return visit — that close. Same with Max Burns. The President will be all over Georgia at the end of the month as a result of late breaking poll numbers.
