After the presidential election in November, all eyes have turned to the new center of the political world: Georgia, where a pair of Senate runoffs will determine which party controls the Senate.

Both Republican Georgia Sen. David Perdue and his Republican colleague Sen. Kelly Loeffler are locked in a runoff election with Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively. Analysis of previous races points to a track record of failure for Democrats in the state, and so does Ossoff’s 90,000 vote trail behind Perdue on Nov. 3. But a RealClearPolitics analysis of possible analyst oversights could help explain why the Georgia Senate runoffs may be better characterized as a toss-up rather than a GOP shoo-in.
