Saxby Chambliss has regained a lead – even if a slim one – in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race, according to the latest statewide poll.
In a Mason-Dixon survey for NBC News released Sunday, Republican incumbent Chambliss had 45 percent, and Democratic challenger Jim Martin had 39 percent. Libertarian Allen Buckley had 5 percent, and the remaining 11 percent were undecided. The margin of error for the poll of 625 likely voters was 3.9 percent.
Mason-Dixon is one of the best polling firms in the country. Saxby should not view this as good news.
His campaign will probably chronicled as the worst Senate campaign this year. Charlie Harman and Tom Perdue will both have a lot to answer for if Saxby wins.
