The Calm Before The Storm; City News

This weekend is the calm before the storm that is the November 2 elections, which is this Tuesday.  Being somewhat of a political junkie, I not only love keeping up with the local races, but the national races as well.  One of my favorite websites is  Real Clear Politics takes all the polling and averages them out to give a general idea as to how all gubernatorial, senate and house races are leaning.  And its map pages (like the one below) are fascinating.

At present, RCP has the governor's race in Georgia leaning Republican.  The average of the four polls RCP uses has Nathan Deal (R) with 48.3%, to Roy Barnes (D) at 39.7%.  RCP lists the senate race in Georgia as safely Republican, with Johnny Isakson (R) leading Michael Thurmond (D) 59.3 to 30.7
