Is Georgia Purple Now?

   Republicans may be in for a surprise in Georgia on November 4th. No, Barack Obama will probably not carry the state, but it’s going to be closer than a lot of people think, says Bill Shipp in a column for the Athens Banner-Herald.  And -Shipp didn’t mention this, but I will – Jim Martin has a good chance of unseating Saxby Chambliss. Martin has been steadily climbing in the polls and he is only two points behind Chambliss now.

  The reason that it is going to be close is because of increased voter registration. One report has it that 300,000 new voters have been registered this year in Georgia.  Also, the state’s demographics are changing; the white majority is lessening.

  Voter turnout is expected to beat all records.
