I think the NRSC should stop airing attack ads against Barksdale and focus on real races.

This race is far from done since Isakson is below 50

The below 50% rule is garbage.  If an incumbent is ahead something like 44%-41%, then yeah, the incumbent is in big trouble and could well lose, but being up 47%-34% usually means something like a 55%-45% win in the end for the incumbent.

If it's a wave Isakson will be washed away. Jim Martin was down by the same margin and forced Chambliss into a runoff, and McCain will lose.
