The State of Politics Today

On a related note. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: the VA senate race was about polarization. Warner has always been extremely popular among rural, conservative Democrats in southside and the southwest of VA. They propelled him to a 33% victory in 2008. His half point margin yesterday is due to those voters abandoning him – many still say they like him, but they refuse to vote for Democrats/Obama. Warner was never a liberal hero who excited the young – yesterday’s results show what VA looks like in a bad year for Democrats.
