DailyKos Poll: Martin & Chambliss Separated By 1 Point

The national, left-leaning blog DailyKos is out with a new poll showing the U.S. Senate race between Democrat Jim Martin and Republican Saxby Chambliss essentially tied with Martin trailing Chambliss by just one point [Source:, "GA-Sen: Holy crap, it is tied!", October 7, 2008].

If the election for U.S. Senate were held today, would you vote for Jim Martin the Democrat or Saxby Chambliss the Republican?

Saxby Chambliss (R) - 45%

Jim Martin (D) - 44%

Other - 4%

Undecided - 7%

The poll was conducted by Research 2000, a firm that's been utilized in the past by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the Concord (NH) Monitor.

This is the second poll within the last week that has shown Jim Martin tightening the race with Saxby Chambliss. A SurveyUSA poll released last week showed Jim Martin trailing Saxby Chambliss by just two points [Source: WMAZ-TV (Macon), "13WMAZ Poll: Obama, Martin Tighten Ga. Races", September 30, 2008].
