Demo­cratic new­comer Jim Barks­dale has been polling around 10 to 15 points lower than his in­cum­bent Repub­li­can op­po­nent Sen. Johnny Isak­son. But Isak­son needs to break 50 per­cent plus 1 vote to avoid a runoff, and an Oct. 20 AJC poll shows him at 47 per­cent (Lib­er­tar­ian can­di­date Allen Buck­ley was pulling 11 per­cent in the same poll). There’s also the pos­si­bil­ity of dis­af­fected anti-Trump Repub­li­cans stay­ing home on Novem­ber 8. A runoff would drag out the race all the way to Jan. 10.
