Most experts believed that Georgia wouldn’t change until 2016 or 2020, but with the rise of the next generation of Democratic leaders (Michelle Nunn and Jason Carter are just two examples), it’s clear that Democrats could pick up both the governor’s mansion and a U.S. Senate seat in the state.

A new Insider Advantage poll of the state has found that Democratic candidate Jason Carter is leading Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, 41%-38%.

Insider Advantage Georgia notes that the margin is within the poll’s 4.3% margin of error, so the race is technically tied. This was the fourth time they polled this contest, and each poll has been close.

Georgia is changing. The Center For American Progress describes the demographic shifts in the state:

In the last decade, Georgia had a rapid rate of increase in its minority population, going from 37 to 44 percent minority over the time period. The increase in the minority population accounted for 81 percent of Georgia’s growth over the decade. Unusually, the biggest contributor to minority growth came from blacks, who alone accounted for 39 percent of Georgia’s growth. The next largest contributor was Hispanics, whose numbers increased at a scorching 96 percent pace and accounted for 26 percent of the state’s growth.

Jason Carter reports-

Pleased to announce that the Georgia chapter of the Sierra Club has endorsed our campaign. Once our natural resources have been depleted, there is no going back. That’s why Jason is a proud advocate for our environment, and has fought against proposals that threaten our coast, our rivers, and our water supply.

White Lives Matter Protest-Police Shoot White Male

"Selective empathy is hate" This is tragic. Another unarmed life taken. That said, I can't but help wonder if the people participating in this protest are the same ones who scream Blue Lives Matter, when an officer does the same to the African American community. Where's all the "he should ...

When I hear about someone who’s wealthy and votes Republican, I “get it.” Why wouldn’t someone vote for a party that’s actively trying to cut their taxes and make it easier for them to become even more wealthy? But what I don’t get are poor and middle class Americans who ...
