A new Democratic poll released Monday afternoon on the Dec. 2 Georgia Senate runoff showed the race essentially tied.
In the poll of 600 likely voters, conducted Friday to Sunday, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R) had 48 percent and former state Rep. Jim Martin (D) had 46 percent.
The Mellman Group (D) poll, taken for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, had a 4-point margin of error.
With just a week to go until Election Day, Jim Martin is well-positioned to win this campaign, DSCC spokesman Matthew Miller said. As every day brings more proof of just how badly Saxby Economics has failed, Georgians are showing they want a leader who will work with Barack Obama to fix the economy, not a politician who blocks change for the middle class.
