SurveyUSA Poll: Chambliss Clings To 3 Point Lead

Yesterday, SurveyUSA released a poll that showed Democrat Jim Martin keeping the race close against incumbent Saxby Chambliss.

Georgia will also elect a United States Senator. If the election for United States Senator were today, would you vote for...

Saxby Chambliss (R) - 46%

Jim Martin (D) - 43%

Allen Buckley (L) - 6%

Undecided - 3%

Says the pollsters at SurveyUSA:

Four weeks ago, when SurveyUSA began tracking the Senate race in Georgia, Chambliss, who is running for his second term, led Martin by 17 points. Two weeks ago, before the candidates debated, Chambliss led by 2. Today, in polling conducted entirely after the 10/09/08 debate which included all three candidates, little has changed.

18% of Georgia voters say they have already voted; among them, Martin leads by 4 points; among those likely voters who have not yet voted, Chambliss leads by 4. Votes are counted in 22 days; any outcome is possible.
