I think there is a tendency to confuse political blunders with differences over substance. If the people really want Obamacare, why don't the polls show that? I haven't seen any. And even if the web site was working perfectly I believe the stories of people losing their coverage, losing their doctors and receiving bills for huge premium increases would be starting to gain visibility even against biased media. As Cuccinelli was comparing illegal Hispanic families to families of rats in D.C. Obamacare was polling very badly and Chris Christie was winning handily.
The only thing standing in the way of Republicans is Republicans that forget how to use the brains God gave them.
I agree that a run-off election would be the proper way to settle a three-way race, rather than let a third-party candidate act as spoiler. We need to address this at every level since both Ross Perot and Ralph Nader seem to have successfully spoiled a presidential race and arguably denied the people their ideological choice by splitting the vote on that side, just as evidently happened in Virginia.
