I agree. I only pointed it out because there seemed to be some confusion on this thread because Bilbray and Busby are on the ballot twice, once for the special election and once for their respective parties in the general election.
Some people were looking at the general election results and saying Bilbray was losing, which wasn't true.
I'll also say that the special election doesn't appear to be as close as the pundits predicted.
Especially dispiriting to the national Democratic Party leadership if the numbers and margin hold up. They put an enormous amount of money, energy, and time into this one race. They were couting on this race to be the ember that would ignite a pro-Democrat conflagration nationwide.
So far, it's been all fizzle and no flame.
