Ms. O’Donnell’s win shows that Americans have had enough with both out-of-control spending and regulations.

Well, maybe. It probably does show that those who voted in the GOP primary feel that way.

Whether that's enough to carry her to a victory in the general election is of course an entirely different question.

The numbers are not particularly encouraging for O'Donnell.

Here's the Statewide party registration for 2010:

Democrats: ..... 292,720
Republicans: ... 182,989
Others: .......... 146,200
Total: ............ 621,909

O'Donnell is going to have to deal with that significant disparity between R and D registration. A victory would have to come mainly from the "Others" category.

I don't think she's got much of a chance.

Well take also into consideration that you will see a lot of “cross-over” voting by Democrats who have “common sense”. Do not underestemate them.

The D’s are not at all motivated so those numbers aren’t really indicative of the situation. Even in presidential election years the D’s don’t vote in the percentages the R’s do. If this were 2008, yeah those numbers would be a problem. Not nearly so daunting now.

In 2006, there were roughly 250 thousand voters.

If she gets 150k, that will be a winning margin. She would have to get 85 percent of all registered republicans to come out and vote.

It’s all about the turnout.

You have to wonder how the outrage factor will influence the election (some fed up democrats) and the no longer interested democrats who won’t show up to vote. She can do it if all the cards are played correctly and the republican voters show up en-mass.
