Live in the metro area, but an adjacent Congressional District. The polls that showed Ossoff up so handily (no pun intended) are almost always tilted to the Democratic precincts of the metro-area. Whether presidential, gubernatorial, senatorial or in this case congressional. They over sample Dems. Though, you will never see the pollsties - those who argue statistical correlations, variances, nuances and peculiarities - recognize that.

Close race. Maybe in 2018.

Your first two statements are correct. The third not so much.

Not in that District. The poor drive new cadillacs and have to make do in 6000 sf mansions. It is one of the richest per capita districts in the country.

48% of them voted for the Democrat. They are beyond help. Probably the welfare crowd.

I think the polls in question are either poorly executed or stupidly seeking a partisan conclusion which appears to be backfiring.
Choice (B) is correct.

Hello, msm, no referendum? No future of pollitics? God the media sucks... They will play it down as usual. Imagine if Ossoff had won, it'd be all the hubbub

I'm pretty sure you meant ANY (and new) leadership. Its a lost party that is being hijacked by a "democratic socialist" who is just the same level of con-man as Trump. Both sides of the aisle have serious problems and we should be embarrassed by them all.

Entertaining. Just as it was seeing the same polls who have gotten the last two gubernatorial, senatorial, presidential and now congressional district wrong, get ti wrong again.
