The bottom line is that I won't trust a Democrat even one inch. I smell Pelosi and Rahm Emmanuel behind all (or most) of these resignations and droppings-out of races....
You'd better check the graph of the polls at RTealClearPolitics. At one time, Deeds had caught up with McDonnell in the polls, and the Washington Post and the Democratic Party Establishment went after McDonnell when they leaked his university thesis. They tried to “macaca” McDonnell and went after McDonnell with everything they had..and still lost by a massive 18%!
The “D” after your name makes you the target of angry voters. No amount of switching candidates is gong to save them.
