    Was this data a surprise to anyone? I don’t think any individual with a clear head on their shoulders would expect the Democratic Party’s line-up of a loon (Cardwell), a loser (Martin), and Snuggles to give sufficient challenge to Saxby Chambliss.

    I want to know the figures on Rand Knight v. Saxby.

    He does but Saxby is them. What is the real difference? He won’t do anything about the borders and now we read that he will support Harry Reid in subsidizing millionaire farmers some more.

    Clearly the man did not learn from watching the GOP loose the majority. It is time for him to walk the walk after all these years of talking the talk.

    Saxby, Stand up be a Republican prove you are a conservative and stop wasting our money.

    I guess that means all is lost for Josh Lanier and his overly funded campaign as well.

    I found it interesting that Martin performs substantially worse than Cardwell. I know Martin has not really started his advertising yet, but I thought what was supposed to be appealing about Martin was his statewide name ID.

  6. kandrew says:

    As Strom Thurmond once said “never lose the first one”. Martin is mostly known state-wide as “that guy who lost to Casey Cagle”.

    Which if he gets beat by Casey Cagle in an open seat election, there’s no way he can topple an incumbent like Saxby.

  7. Goldwater Conservative says:

    Those numbers are going to change rapidly though. Martin might go up to 36 or 37%, but the Cardwell and Jones numbers are going to drop like lead balloons. Cardwell’s numbers will not drop as much as Jones’s, only because Dale was a tv personality and Jones is a criminal.

    Unless there is a sex scandal involving little boys, Saxby is probably safe.

  8. GeorgiaValues says:

    Saxby is not only outraising his opponents, he is outworking them. While the Floundering Five have nothing to do but campaign, Saxby comes home from Washington on the weekend and runs circles around them.

    I hope that the cast of characters assembled by the Dems in this Senate race isn’t any indication of the caliber of opponents they’ll be throwing out against Isakson and in the governor’s race in 2010.

    I knew the party was down, but geez-us this is bad.

  10. Icarus says:

    The dems should save their money instead of going after Isakson.

    However, given that the Gov’s mansion will be open, and if the shenanegans continue between the Gov, Lt. Gov, and Speaker, the dems really should be looking at upgrading their bench for that race.
