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.
