ADVANCE FOR SUNDAY, JAN. 6 - A ray of sunlight in cast across a door handle on the Senate Floor of the Georgia State Capitol, Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, in Atlanta. A more Republican General Assembly will convene in mid-January facing a familiar challenge: How to absorb increasing health care costs in a state budget continually short on revenue. Medicaid questions, specifically the renewal of an expiring tax on hospitals' patient revenue, will dominate the session. But there's no shortage of intrigue on education policy, gun laws in the wake of a Connecticut shooting, and the political structure of a state Senate that looks to emerge from dysfunction.

Clinton Ahead of Trump in Georgia

I am skeptical of polling in Georgia, but an AJC poll has Clinton ahead of Trump in Georgia.

What makes this slightly more credible is that the AJC has a better track record of polling in Georgia than all the television stations in Georgia. The AJC tends to hire more credible pollsters with a better track record in Georgia.

That said, I still don’t believe it. Polling in Georgia tends to always show the Democrats ahead at this time. In 2014, Nathan Deal and David Perdue were both losing to the Democrats, which did not actually happen on election day. There is, of course, one caveat to that. The only poll at this time of year that got the race right was the AJC. And right now the AJC is the only poll in Georgia that has Clinton ahead.

Republicans should, if nothing else, take note. Trump is putting states in play as he said he would. They just are not the states Trump claimed he would put in play.
