I wonder if the race would have been any closer had the GOP actually supported O’Donnell.
Of course it would have been closer. I saw an exit poll on FOX the night of the election that showed O’Donnell ran fairly well among independents but while Coons got well over 90% of the Democrat vote, she only got in the low 80%s among Republican voters.
Also on O’Reilly last night O’Donnell said that the Delaware GOP machine did not help her and so she had to build her own GOTV apparatus from scratch.
BTW, exit polls also showed Castle would have lost to Coons as well. We’ll never know for sure who would have won, but it’s certain that O’Donnell would have done much better had the Delaware GOP supported her and had RINO eletes like Rove not trashed her after she won the primary.
