Saxby puts little faith in polls

October 19, 2006

Tifton -- Three weeks before the November elections, some national polls indicate the Democratic party will win enough seats to take over control of the Senate and the Congress from Republicans.  

Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss of Moultrie says he has seen those polls, but is not convinced that Democrats will win as many seats as national expert say.   "What folks have to remember is all politics is local. Nobody is going to vote for or against a member of Congress based on something that happened outside of their state."  

Chambliss said he thinks Republicans will continue to control the Senate, and is hopeful they can hang onto dominance in the Congress, despite what the national polls say.
