Democrats could hold the Senate

Not that I pay a lot of attention to right-leaning Rassmussen Reports, but, and perhaps because of their bias, a new poll in the Georgia Senate race is of note.
A new statewide telephone survey of Likely Georgia Voters finds [Democratic nominee Michelle] Nunn leading Congressman Jack Kingston 47% to 41%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while nine percent (9%) are undecided.
In a matchup with businessman David Perdue, Nunn earns 45% support to her GOP rival’s 42%. Seven percent (7%) favor another candidate in this contest, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
Because no Republican received more than 50% of the vote in the May 20th primary, Kingston and Purdue will have to go up against each other in a July 22nd runoff.
Fine, it’s still early. But it would seem that no matter who the Republicans run, it’ll be close in November. And despite establishment Republican’s crowing that they have beat back crazy Tea Party challengers in a number of primaries, they have had to tack to the right to do it.
Just saying that a competitive Georgia Senate race tells me this will not be 2010 all over again. In other words, I like the Democrat’s chances of holding the Senate. The pendulum is swinging back to the centre, sort of.
