  •  Jason Carter has his grandaddy's smile doesn't he? (7+ / 0-)

    I'm surprised Cleland is polling as strongly as he does in this poll, but will those unfavorables be easily driven up?

    I still think Barrow is the strongest candidate, and yes, he is a Conservadem. He can win because he probably can win the largest percentage of the white vote. It is no secret that a Dem is going to have turn out minority voters while winning close to 25% of the white vote.

    My question is whether or not Barrow can raise the money to wage a smart campaign? I think Cleland can raise the money, but I think it will be tougher for him to win. Just ask Roy Barnes.

    I think with his grandaddy's help, Carter might be able to run a good campaign and is the most likely of the suggestions to put together an Obama-like coalition. He is definitely the most likely to survive a loss in order to run successfully another day.

    •  Cleland had an edge in '02 (0+ / 0-)

      until Chambliss released that despicable Cleland=OBL commercial.  This can cut two ways ... on the one hand, a GOP candidate can be as despicable as Chambliss was.  On the other hand, some Chambliss voters in '02 might realize they were suckered.
