McKinney Poised to Lose Primary

Cynthia McKinney, the Democratic Congresswoman from Georgia who was made famous earlier this year for hitting a Capitol Hill police officer who stopped McKinney after she bypassed metal detectors while not wearing the proper congressional identification.

McKinney is trailing by a considerable margin in every major poll. An Insider Advantage Poll shows McKinney trailing 53%-40% with only 7% undecided.

However, Peach Pundit, a must read for any Georgian (and maybe a few New Jerseyans) believes that McKinney "will pull it out." Peach suggests that McKinney's charges that her more centrist opponent is backed by Republicans will have an effect with her constituents.

It didn't work the last time McKinney lost a primary as an incumbent. Yeah, she's done it before.
