Coons In Trouble? O’Donnell Turnout Success?

Published by at 1:37 pm under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions

We all knew that it would have to be an ungodly huge wave to elevate Christine O’Donnell into the US Senate, but it seems the Coons campaign has seen the wave, and they are worried!

In a noon email alert to supporters, Coons campaign manager Christy Gleason said close monitoring of voter turnout in the state’s 41 representative districts showed “lower turnout in New Castle and Kent counties than we’re comfortable with.”

Was it lower turnout in their areas, or massive turnout in O’Donnell’s? The parties and campaigns have all the data to measure the wave as it comes ashore – so this is a clear sign the Democrats are not happy with what they see!

    He might just be trying to gin up his people. I am sure a lot of them are feeling way too confident. There is a huge margin there and that is a lot to make up. I am wondering if the Democrats are trying to find one high profile race where they can crush someone, and they are hoping this is it.

    If there was a year that O’Donnell could win, this is it. But I am not impressed with her and I really don’t trust her…and I voted a straight Republican ticket this year. If I feel that way about O’Donnell, I have to wonder how people who are a lot more liberal than me feel about her. I just can’t get past the lying in the radio interview and the bogus law suit and weird finances. I am sure that if she was a RINO, there is no way the conservatives would over look all that. No way.

    Having said that, I would still rather see the Democrat get beat. I would like to see them lose the Senate.

    I hope she wins, it will be the sweetist victory of the night.

    If we can get rid of Reid, Frank, Boxer will be the candles on the cake.

    The problem is that they were supposed to win this one big!! If O’Donnell comes up even slightly short (e.g. 2 – 4 points), it will be a hollow victory.

  6. [...] First it was Coons in DE raising the alarm bells, now it is Blumenthal in CT sending out a midday alert that Dems are not coming out in the needed numbers: Low supporter turnout for Richard Blumenthal has forced the campaign to send out an alert Tuesday afternoon urging supporters to get out to the polls.

    This is pretty important because of the geographics. Delaware has three counties. The Northernmost county, New Castle County, is where the urban Wilmington and Newark cities are along with University of Delaware. It is pretty close to Philadelphia in its political leanings.

    Kent County is in the middle and while mostly rural and small town, is the seat of the state government and attracts a lot of people from New Castle county so it is still mostly blue but a more conservative shade of blue for the most part.

    Southernmost Sussex County is very rural and the most conservative of the counties though people still tend to vote Democrat, the political leanings are more of the Southern style conservative Democrat than the Northern style liberal Democrat you will find up North.

    If turnout is low in New Castle and Kent counties, watch out. Those places are the base of Coons’ support.
