>>> One of the few little reported exit polls from nov 5 is that Castle would have LOST too.
That’s grasping at straws you know. Exit polls can only reasonably measure an election that ACTUALLY was held that day. Not a theoretical one that wasn’t held at all. The buildup to election day would have been under a totally different dynamic. The exit polls of the one race could not speak for the other.
Castle was an established credible Delaware political leader. The dems against Castle would not have been so energized as they were against the actual nominee.
In fact the only figures we have on the race that didn’t occur was the polling showing Castle winning handily. These are the same polls that so accurately predicted O’Donnell’s defeat.
If this was little reported, it’s because it’s of no particular relevancy or validity.
“In fact the only figures we have on the race that didnt occur was the polling showing Castle winning handily. These are the same polls that so accurately predicted ODonnells defeat.”
So let me get this straight...polls said Castle would win...Castle gets beat in his party primary; so those who would have voted for him are so turned off by her win they vote for the dem? Or did they stay home? Or perhaps, the inds were so turned off by O Donnell they voted the the marxist?
Regardless, none of this minimizes the simple fact that Castle was a sore loser and did not support the winner and that his buddy Rove did all he could to undermine any possibility she had to win. As she said last night, she could not overcome the personal attacks which were taken because they could not beat her on the issues.
All this is water over the dam, who will beat Coons in 2012? That is all I care about at this juncture. We can pretty much bet that the country club RINOs will not run a conservative, so which squish are they going to put up?
