A new SurveyUSA poll in Georgia shows Michelle Nunn (D) has overtaken David Perdue (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 48% to 45%.
As far as I can tell, the polls in Georgia since the beginning of September other than this one have all been Republican leads or ties - by 1, 4, 4, 2, 4, 4, 1, 0, and 3 points. So you can assert there’s been some sudden shift towards the Democrats, but this looks an awful lot like an ordinary margin of error around a 2-3 point Republican lead. Going to suggest it’s way more likely this was a statistical fluke (or, you know, a full-on error in polling) than a massive leftward shift.
Also, unless Nunn starts polling consistently above 50%, you should expect a runoff (GA has those, btw). Depending on the rest of the country, this race (and its polling) could be even messier.

Actress Misty Upham was last seen by her family on October 5, according to her father Charles Upham. She left her apartment near Muckleshoot Casino and hasn’t returned.
No one has seen or heard from her since, according to Auburn police.
Charles Upham said Misty Upham is endangered due to mental health issues that require medication.
She was last seen wearing a purple sweater, black t-shirt, gray sweat pants and gray tennis shoes.
The family submitted a missing persons report with the Auburn police. A spokesperson said police don’t consider Misty Upham endangered.
police don’t consider Misty Upham endangered? and why the hell not??
This car drove into the protected bike lane on First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis, where the bike lane is “protected” by infrequent bollards and parked cars on the left, in an arrangement that seems to benefit no one.
I could have kept going and gotten around it, but I didn’t know how far into the bike lane it was going to go, so I skidded to a stop and braced myself against the car to regain my balance. The woman in the passenger seat rolled down the window and apologized profusely. I didn’t say anything because I was rattled and upset and probably would’ve yelled something impolitic. In my experience, nothing good comes from engaging people in situations like these.
As I rode away I actually felt bad for putting a damper on their night.
This post is so fucking Minnesotan, it hurts.
