Burr is really going to have to work to keep this seat. He may be leading, but he is not at 50 against anyone. Dole losing last time around and Obama carrying the state are goign to make it real tough on Burr. If I were the Dems I would focus on picking up this seat.

I think Burr will probably retain this easily. His problem is name recognition, he hasn't done anything to irritate voters beyond a few marginal gaffes. Without a strong candidate like Kay Hagan or Obama driving the AA turnout machine, this will stay red unless the pace of economic recovery is far quicker than expected.

2010 will be a brutal year for any Democrat running for office in the South.
