Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I may have been too cynical about Georgia.

Georgia made more competitive by 1M new voters since '16 election

Nearly two-thirds of the new voters since the last presidential election are people of color. White voters make up over half, 53%, of all registered voters in Georgia.

Since these voters did not vote in 2016 they will most likely not pass the Likely Voter test and they've changed a history based political party percentages.  Both of these will FUBAR polling if not taken into account.

Getting the ignorant hick Evangelical bigots down to less than 53% of registered voters is a huge step forward in flipping the state.  Getting the EVs is meh? - nice but not necessary.  Getting two Senate seats is a Big Deal.

Rise of young and diverse Georgia voters may influence 2020 elections, Feb 2020
The most significant increases were among Hispanic and Asian voters, which are growing quickly but make up a relatively small portion of the state's voting population, about 6%. Black voters held steady at 33% of Georgia's electorate.
