Yet another poll shows Republican presidential candidate John McCain with a commanding lead over Democrat Barack Obama in Georgia.

The new survey commissioned by WXIA-TV (11Alive) in Atlanta and WMAZ-TV in Macon, and conducted by SurveyUSA puts McCain at 57 percent , with Obama trailing at 41 percent.

The same poll puts the U.S. Senate race thusly: Republican incumbent Saxby Chambless at 53 percent; Democrat Jim Martin at 36 percent; and Libertarian Allen Buckley at 8 percent.

The fortunes of Chambliss and McCain are linked. This is from the 11Alive analysis of the survey:

The poll shows that McCain holds a 3-to-1 lead among white voters in Georgia, while Obama has a 23-to-1 lead among black Georgia voters.

The poll shows McCain with a double-digit lead among both men and women, among those of all age groups and educational levels across the rest of the state of Georgia outside of Metro Atlanta.

Obama does not have a chance period. McCain/Palin will win PA & NJ and it will be all over.
