    Default An important announcement to the citizens of the State of Georgia.

    The Republican Party, AKA GOP, thinks that each and every one of you is an imbicilic goober who'll fall for anything.

    In much of the state, they seem to be correct.

    But the state did vote for Biden and they have two Democratic senators and will likely send Herschel back to Texas. Also Abrams and Kemp seem to be neck and neck for governor.

    Ahh, that will be why GOP, thinks that each and every one of you is an imbicilic goober who'll fall for anything.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Don’t have a dog in the race anymore, but pretty much everyone I know in GA will be voting for Kemp. The state has done well economically under his leadership. His win in the GOP primaries was encouraging after his dispute with trump.

    I know a whole lot of people that won’t be. I think it will be close again.

    Let's not forget that GA is the state that gave us Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Jewish Space Laser. We probably should not expect too much from them.

    They are also the state most likely to prosecute Trump and company.

    It is a place of contradictions. The GOP-led states tend to get more money from the federal government than they give, despite complaints that they pay too much taxes, but GA is an exception to that as well. They pay more to the feds than they get.

    From what little I understand, northern GA is Greene country and southern GA is more liberal. I don't know what decides the balance.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    But what turns the state-wide vote from Greene to rationality?

    Just like pretty much every other state in the country.

    Metro Atlanta is not south GA and becomes more liberal every year, as many densely populated areas do.
