Sounds logical, I doubt GA is in play, of all places. Might be good news for Obama if this is the lower limit since the Carolinas may be tighther.

Interesting that SV stopped polling HRC, I thought that only RA stopped tracking that.

While Georgia has been red for many years, it is not out of the question that Obama could be competitive here in November.

Clinton won Georgia in 1992, even if by 1%, and of course Georgia supported Carter before falling in love with Reagan and the Bushes. Obama did very well in the Primary on Super Tuesday, while McCain did rather poorly in the GOP stronghold of metro Atlanta. If Bob Barr gets the Libertarian nod, he would likely have the biggest impact in his home state, which could sap away McCain votes, even if only 5-10%.

Georgia also has reasonably large constituencies of young, college educated, and black voters; all strong areas for Obama. If his GOTV effort mobilizes these groups to show up, it could make the difference.

It's still a long shot, but like the Carolinas and Virginia, Obama may pull it off in the coastal southern states.

The Atlantic coast might match the Pacific in a certain shade of blue this year.
