More gooey polling goodness from Rasmussen.

Saxby still strong:

The U.S. Senate race in Georgia has remained relatively steady this month. Senator Saxby Chambliss leads Democratic challengers Vernon Jones 59% to 29% and Jim Martin 51% to 40% in the Peach State.

Last month, the incumbent led Jones 57% to 30%, while topping Martin 52% to 39%. He also had double-digit leads over three other Democrats vying for his position. However, the Democratic field was narrowed to two contenders with last month’s primary. Jones and Martin will face off August 5th in the party’s runoff election, since neither candidate earned 50% in the primary.

  1. Just goes to show you, Georgians see no reason to replace one Liberal with another one. Too bad the GOP didn’t see fit to run a conservative against Saxby in the primary.

    Saxby = Most Liberal Senator in Georgia History

    (Jace will be home soon)

  2. GeorgiaValues says:

    Daniel,

    That is a moronic statement:

    Chambliss’ ratings from interest groups…

    Christian Coalition: 100%

    National Rifle Association: A+

    NARAL: 10%

    American Civil Liberties Union:7%

    U.S. Chamber of Commerce: 91%

    National Education Association:27%

    AFL-CIO: 15%

    National Taxpayers Union: 74%

    Chambliss is the primary sponsor in the United States Senate for the tax-reform proposal The Fair Tax Act (S. 1025), attracting more cosponsors than any other fundamental tax reform bill introduced.

    On the Issues rated him as a “Hard-Core Conservative”.[7]

  3. Georgia,
    You said it… you rely on interest groups. I rely on me and the interest of all Americans
