Why are the majority if people ignoring the fact that THERE ARE 0 PRECINCTS REPORTING? These calls are based on exit polls ( Polls. Remember the polls saying Angle was done? That Crist was making a comeback? Kerry wins? Gore wins? etc etc) I’m waiting for solid numbers and votes.
Wooooo there, EEE.
Munchkin in WV also called. Again on exit polls
Steele was in Delaware with her and campaigned for her and was featured on some of ads/videos. It was the NRSC that didn’t make the effort above the $49,000 contribution to her campaign.
Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt.
Castle [R] was such a lock that Joe Biden's son decided not to even try contest to him for his Daddy's old seat.
That's what pissed off Rove.....they threw away a SURE thing.
Then the republicans in DE. should have voted for Castle. They did not.
How can you call a race at 8:14 - no way! I don’t believe this thread at all.......
Here is the massachusetts map of voting poll results. The map is empty....
Speaking of Arlen Specter, I really hope that Pat Toomey survives the O'Donnell Effect! It wasn't just on the air that they used her to campaign in PA--they were talking about her door-to-door to get out the Dem votes. :-(
That effectively disenfranchises the people of Delaware. The LOOT will cease to flow.
First, the credit card companies that do business in Delaware ~ bust them down to T-bills plus 2% and really hurt them HARD.
Rove lost money when Christine beat Castle...that’s why he was pissed. Mitt = Obama second term.
I’m sure that everything is on the up and up, but no results are in from Kent or Sussex.
I sure hope they do.
Because it's not true.
The feed is active and results are coming in. I posted the 9% of NCC precinct results: Coons 65%, O'Donnell 32%.
If Castle was such a sure thing, why didn’t he win the friggin’ PRIMARY?
C.O. might have had a better chance if Tokyo Rove would have STFU instead of badmouthing the R candidate... he got all pissy because his R lost the primary.
Tokyo Rove is an ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN. And no friend to Conservatives.
Defund Delaware. Cut them off and let the flop alone. We have to get the Feds out of the handout Biz. These communists states will fail on their own.
Christine O’Donnell is a good idea—no, an excellent idea—to this very minute. Your problem is you haven’t listened to O’Donnell herself.
And if this lie that she lost turns out to be factual, I say O’Donnell should be among those headed for the White House.
I side with Rove on this; competent candidates matter. If elections were only about being right on a grocery list of issues, we could run me for office, or any of you.
Being competent and being right on the issues is our ideal case. But don’t delude ourselves into believing that good intentions translate into good results. That kind of identity politics, where we all get drunk on hopium, is for liberals.
He wouldn't have done that, and people who know him knew that rumor was just a Dem trick.
I am no big fan of his, but it's silly to think that this marxist is going to be better than Mike Castle--who voted with the Republicans more than half the time, even when it was against his (rather liberal) constituency.
It was a calculated move. Rove probably thought her chances of winning were slim. I have to admit I have not been impressed with her from what I've seen on TV but then I haven't seen the RAT at all.
It's amazing the debris people will vote for. But it's time to stop blaming Rove.
Win or lose, you did good, Christine!
You’re right—Delaware is a liberal state. Even with the wind at your back, a conservative would have to run a pretty much perfect race. The problem is no legit candidate thought they had a shot against Castle so all that enthusiasm was blindly bestowed on COD, a perennial gadfly who, though a nice gal at heart and right on the issues, was never qualified, vetted or prepared for a serious campaign. It’s a shame because we could have a shot if more people realized Castle was vulnerable early on.
If those numbers are from Newcastle county they’re way off the statewide numbers.
Yeah, I saw that right after I posted. But 9% isnt 90%. Exit polls are not votes. I’m going to wait for actual results.
Nonsense. The RINO was beaten in the primary. that’s the way it works.
The funny thing is, she never did answer the questions Karl Rove brought up.
And there's the matter of the FEC charges. In a way, I hope they don't go through with those now that she's lost; in a way, I hope they do...since I don't like election fraud, even if it's someone who claims to be a conservative.
I live in a commie state(California) trust me, if my family weren’t all living here, I would have left a long time ago. Born and raised here, Reagan himself couldn’t win this state again. This state is too far gone to be saved
Latest on-line results are making the call based on 6% of the vote, all in New Castle County. She probably has lost .... the 65-32% margin will probably tighten up, though.
You could thank Rove for O’Donnell’s lose or you can blame her crappy campaign handlers, especially the one who came up with “I am not a witch.”
>>>But it’s time to stop blaming Rove.
The least Tokyo Rove could have done was do no harm. He did harm when he didn’t have to.
Rove is no friend of conservatives. He is for himself, and the establishment, in that order.
The problem with a RINO like Castle is that they can become more powerful in a tight Senate. While it would be great to see the Committees swing R, in the long view, having a Republican Senate with no will to advance a conservative agenda due to the the threat of somebody pulling a Jeffords or a small RINO group trying to assume the bipartisan broker mantle would be a disaster in 2012.
I’m mad at Clint Didier in my state for not endorsing Dino Rossi, and I’m mad at Karl Rove for sniping at O’Donnell. Once the candidate is chosen you don’t help the other side. I voted Didier and I was a fan of Rove. Never again.
There, fixed it for you.
Most vicious kneecapping I’ve ever seen. Don’t worry, O’D. You’re in the right, and if this isn’t your time, your time will come. Coons will choke on his victory, if victory it is.
May the lamestream media do likewise.
Winning then being wrong on the issues does us no good whatsoever. We need both. That's why killing off RINOs is our first step then electing true conservative Constitutionalists is our next step.
Get with the game. We win, they lose.
Yeah, tonight Rove and Krauthammer scored a victory that a lot of us will remember for a long, long time.
It’s not time to stop blaming Rove.
It’s time to vote Rove off the island. He’s a traitor and an undependable, turncoat.
Scr*w Rove. He should be shunned. KARL ROVE LOST THIS RACE.
Meh... again, people lie to exit polls. I would. None of their business how I voted. After 2000 and 2004 I would rather wait.
I'll blame him for attacking the Republican candidate immediately following her primary win, and for quite some time thereafter. The Republican voters of Delaware had spoken. His fit of pique will cost him down the road. He's verging on anathema and deservedly so.
It is going to go down. I would sell off and get out quick.
She’s a good conservative put down by sore loser Karl Rove and his country club RINO cabal of which you are a cheerleader. Bye bye RINO/Romney troll.
Not only don’t I trust them, I don’t want the backstabbing freaks.
Yes...that's what I was pointing out. But even if she does great in Kent and Sussex, she needed to avoid being trounced so badly in NCC, as 2/3 of the voters are there.
First, you need to get control of the committees and chairmanships - that's where the power in the Senate and House resides. Those positions get to decide WHICH bills even come up for vote, before any RINO or Democrat can vote for it.
You need the most Rs first, before your conservatives can do squat. Castle would have at least caucused with the GOP meaning DeMint and other deep conservatives would be heading those committees, rather than Democrats.
Having 49 strong conservatives in the Senate means nothing, if they cannot set the agenda.
Rove can suck it.
Not me. My past is too "colorful." Besides, if a commie-lib opponent got smarmy during a debate, I'd be forced to give them a "wedgie." Although it would make for great "You-Tube," it would likely not win with the voters.
