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.
The view from the cheapseats here, was that O'Donnell was villified in the press at every opportunity, day in and day out.
Pretty tough to fight the MSM full court from the opening buzzer, and I think she made a creditable showing.
The MSSM was out to crap on the TEA party movement, and she became the poster child for the campaign against Conservative America.
I really don't think going back to 'lesser evil' rino electing will benefit the country much either. After all, all those little compromises are what got the nation into this mess.
He had 3 million and the Delaware Republican Party in his pocket and couldn't beat "a flawed candidate".
The ridiculous lengths people go to to avoid placing this loss in the lap of the Delaware Republican Party is beyond absurd.
Yeah, but if Castle won, we would have had Castle.
And I gave her my share of that $4il freely, and she is welcome to it.
