Exit polls are rarely even close to accurate. And with a one point differential in this case, no one can really claim to know what the result would have been with Castle as the candidate, particularly in the absence of a Castle campaign which would have changed the outcome to be sure. Democrats are more apt to answer exit polling according to experts. So this 1 point difference really says nothing.
No surprise. Given a choice between a RINO lib and Dim lib, they’ll take the real thing every time.
You will also snag the WarshDC metro-area GAY SCENE because they do a lot of that.
Not that the out of towners vote in Delaware, but they do get polled on what they think.
The Republicans who view Delaware as a "hobby" tend to stick to the summertime polls to guide them, so that's why the primary came out askew from their polling.
Wasn't a Republican year in Delaware ~ maybe next time.
Hey, a liberal replaced a liberal. Nothing changed.
Of course he would. Why vote for a liberal lite when you can get the real deal with Coons.
Speculation at best but destiny may well have been on Coons side in this election. 44-43 percent is closer than 57-40 which was actual.
I can't explain the logic because libtards are not logical. Does anyone care to try?
Just by her winning the nomination as a CONSERVATIVE in Delaware is a MAJOR accomplishment and she is to be praised. We cant win every seat, but we have to start to change the whole process at the state level... little by little, bit by bit...
Saul Alinsky tactics on full throttle. Identify, isolate, freeze and escalate.
With news media outlets on board how could any conservative win?
Bill Maher a legend in your own mind.
If Castle had, in contrast to O'Donnell, been running a competent campaign for the weeks running up to the election he could very likely have made up that one point.
O'Donnell began 20 points behind, was given $4 million to waste, and still ended up 20 points behind.
What this poll tells us about the race is that Castle began with a lead of several points, no one heard from him for almost two months, and he wound up polling just a point behind.
44-43 is a heck of a lot closer than what O’Donnell got, 56-40.
Believe what you will.
So now we LIKE exit polls?
O’Donnell was an awful candidate who didn’t deserve to win. Doesn’t mean Coons deserved to win, but she didn’t either. (I just would have prefered if she did.)
If we want to keep bragging that we’re the party of responsible adults, we can’t nominate people who talk responsibility but don’t pay their bills, sue for $6.9 million when they don’t get promotions, and who run campaigns by paying money to go on the air to announce “I’m not a witch.”
She was supported here as she should have been, but the election’s over. O’Donnell was a horrible candidate, a three-time loser, and she needs to go back to whatever it is she can do well, since running for office as one who doesn’t just talk the talk but lives by conservative principles ain’t it.
Why O’Donnell lost:
-Delaware is a very blue State;
-O’Donnell got the Palin treatment from the oh-so-tolerant libs;
-in addition, O’Donnell got blindsided by some of her Republican cohorts.
“probably” “44-43 percent”
Gotta love that CNN logic.
Still glad the cap and trader is gone.
I was NEVER a Christine O’Donnell hater and what I heard from her and seen from her never convinced me that she was the evil moron that Karl Rove and the MSM made her out to be, but I didn’t know until last night that she had run for senator twice and lost badly.
I am not saying we should roll over for RINOs like Castle, but maybe it would be better to nominate somebody who isn’t a consistent loser.
I find it a little funny how Unions can support a Marxist considering how Marxist governments violently suppress unions. Delaware, you reap what you sow. Oh, how far the 1st state has fallen since 1776.
Memo to: Tokyo Rove
Every attempt to win with a conservative gets us closer to meaningful success while with every win with a RINO we slip further into the abyss.
Apparently the fact that Castle lost to O’Donell in the primary hasn’t fazed some of you. He lost. Too early.
The lack of support of O’Donell by some elements of the Republican Party is going to be addressed in the future.
They have the duty to support whoever makes it through the primary. Period.
Otherwise there is no reason to have them around.
