New polling from The Hill shows Rep. Jim Marshall trailing Austin Scott by 13 points:
Rep. Jim Marshall (D-Ga.) is down 13 points, 37 percent to 50, against Republican Austin Scott, with 10 percent of likely voters undecided, according to The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll.
Ironically, voters give the four-term lawmaker high marks: Forty-five percent rated him favorably, compared to the 40 percent who rated him unfavorably. Scott had higher ratings, however, with 50 percent giving him favorable marks compared to 19 percent who didn’t.
Analysts at the Cook Political Report are now saying that Republicans could gain as many as 60 seats in the House of Representatives.
