Below, Guy referenced light Dem turnout in New Jersey's sixth and Delaware.

Now, from Wisconsin, it appears that Dem Rep. Steve Kagen is worried about turnout, as well.  That's good news from a state where Ron Johnson is poised to take the Feingold Senate seat.

This scenario explains why Dem consultants kept whistling past the political graveyard, gamely arguing that the situation wasn't as dire as the numbers have suggested.  Otherwise, a rout becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy -- I would suspect, especially among Dems, who put more stock in the MSM and their predictions and are known to be more likely to get put off voting by things like the weather (yes, it's true).
