It’s hard to see how today’s elections could have possibly gone better for conservatives:
- North Carolina added marriage protection to its constitution by a margin of 61-39!
- Richard Mourdock defeated Obama’s favorite senator – the longest-serving Republican senator – by 61-39!
- Scott Walker got more votes than his two Democrat opponents combined, even though he was “running” unopposed in the Republican primary!
There is no hope for Democrats in these results. None. Not even the smallest glimpse of a silver lining.
For Democrats, these results are worse than 2010. They show a continuation of that year’s tidal wave, with conservatives fired up and ready to punish Democrats and liberal causes.
If conservative passion can hold for another six months, Republicans can be expected to significantly outperform their poll numbers in November.
That should send a chill down the spine of all those Democrats who are merely tied with their Republican opponents right now. Being tied in the polls is no longer good enough. Democrats need a 5-10 point lead now to survive November.
And guess which Democrat presidential candidate is currently tied in the polls with his Republican challenger…
