1. Too early to call = now officially too close to call.

 

Never know - just break for Obama.

Georgia could be the be-all to end it all.

6. Never say that. Georgia can turn

I live in Georgia & Georgia's on the brink.
Last time Obama got 1,844,123 votes to McCain's 2,048,759.
That's 46.99% for Obama vs. 52.20% for McCain.

And that's just a little over 5%.
5.21% to be exact.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2008#Result

Georgia's on the brink & can go Blue this time around.
I've been feeling it for a while now.
I think this is the surprise Deep South state that will flip this election.

I'm also looking Arizona as the BIG surprise favorite to flip.
I see Arizona flipping most of all followed by Georgia.
Getting Jack Kingston out may be hard but Obama can win Georgia if enough turnout comes through.

5. I & all of my white and black friends here in Northeast Georgia voted for Obama.

Conservative, white males are becoming a demographic minority among legal residents of voting age in this state. If we have massive voter turnout among women, blacks and hispanics then we could once again become a blue state. Our next step would then be to take back our statehouse and elect a Democratic governor between now and 2016. I'd love to have at least one Democratic senator as well. (How I miss Max Cleland.)

My black friends have been doing massive GOTV efforts among both rural and urban blacks. They have been targeting the elderly and very young voters. A three week long early voting period in my county and in neighboring areas has been very popular.

It would be AWESOME if Obama wins Georgia!

7. My hubby & I both vote for Obama too, and we're old wite folks.

I can tellyou that NONEof my neighbors, including the several black families in this SD, voted for Obama. All the peoiple I've dealt with, like the cimney sweep, carpet cleaner, roofer, barber, etc. have all been really re Pubs. I sure hope you'e right, butI just haven't seen it

I keep hoping that all the people wo have relocated from the North and re likely Dems wpould make a difference, but I haven't seenit.
