Great analysis, thanks tom!


Leftist loon Kos polled this match-up last week and had Isakson above 50 and blasting Thurmond by nearly 30 points. Sweet dreams.


Did I miss the Democratic primary election? Who says Barnes will be the nominee? Lets not forget that all the pollsters and pundits were wrong, wrong, wrong in 2002.


Tom, dream on! If Republicans pick up senate seats in Massachusetts and Illinois, you honestly think that an incumbent Republican senator will lose in Georgia where they won an open race in 08? Face the facts! Democrats will lose likely 7-8 seats in the Senate and 50+ in the House. Period.


Thurmond over Isakson? Not! Given the current anti-Democrat sentiment of voters in this country - very much so in Georgia, Isakson is a virtual shoe-in to win reelection. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll (March 17), Isakson led a generic Democrat by 52-31, up from February, when it was 49-36. In the same poll, he had a VERY STRONG favorability rating of 24-8, amongst Georgia voters, versus those having a VERY STRONG unfavorable opinion of him (3 to 1?) Add on the fact that McCain carried Georgia over Obama 52-47 in 2008. There is, as well, a number of other (polling) stats favoring the likelihood that he will, indeed, be reelected. And you consider him to be vulnerable? I dont think so!


Tom,That last comment was a little mean. Try to stay positive and nice.I was actually thinking the same thing as Christian Liberty, and ran over to intrade to check out this race. No one snapped up the 1 dollar shares of Thurmond last week, and no one has yet. I doubt itll change the race much, but well see.

Christian Liberty,Do you have a job? Those of us hard working Americans who are keeping this country strong dont have nearly as much time to comment on blogs as you seem to.

Christian Liberty

Those willing to put their money where their mouth is over at Intrade only give a Democrat a 10% chance to defeat Isakson.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
