Georgia’s 6th district runoff left us with two candidates in the normally-safe Republican district: Democrat Jon Ossoff, and Republican (and long time RedState favorite) Karen Handel.

A new internal poll is out. Can she win?

Here’s the new poll by Ossoff’s own campaign. It’s an internal poll, which means his campaign picked the very best outlier on his side, to publish.

As a result, we conclude Karen Handel is leading, probably about 52-48. Which is close, so her campaign had best get it into high gear with door knocking and other turnout efforts, in order to convert this lead into a victory.
