GA Sen: Democrat Michelle Nunn Has Narrow Lead
The last CNN/ORC poll found Nunn winning 47 percent of likely voters and David Perdue with 44 percent. Libertarian Amanda Swafford is in third place with five percent, but that is very important given Georgia election laws. If no candidate gets over 50 percent on election day there is a runoff election two months later.
Democrats really want to push Nunn over threshold now because a low turnout runoff election could easily end up favoring Perdue since regular Republicans are much more motivated to vote this year.
If Democrats want to keep control of the Senate this race is a must win at this point.
