    So the Democrats will spin it that this is the breakdown of the GOP and a refute of the Tea Party. While the Tea Party and the GOP will say it shows a refute of Obamacare. The problem isn't the spin or the media play. The problem for the Democrats is.....seeing this election that had poll numbers in the double digits for McAuliffe going into the last couple of days. Out spending and can only manage to eek-out a slight victory. Leaves to many other Democrats looking at Obamacare and knowing they are on the Bubble. That Independents, undecided, and the GOP came out to vote for the Republican candidate and almost made the pass. Of course Republicans now know if they would have ran a legitimate contender. They could have won it.

    Now the Christie election does indeed show something.....it was a Landslide. 62% of the Vote. With Christie having 1/3rd of Democrats vote for him. Women Vote for him. Hispanics Vote for him and he even pulled more than the usual with the youth vote. This puts Christie in the front runner position for the 2016 Election for the GOP and presents a real Problem for the Democrats.....mainly due to Obamacare.
    Actually, this does not give any indication of how things will be in 2014 at all. All it does is show that extremism has been defeated. Christie is a moderate Republican, and people love him so much that he totally crushed his competition. Cuccinelli is an extremist and lost to an opponent who had lots of skeletons in his closet. A moderate Republican would have beaten McCauliffe easily. People are looking for pragmatists who will work across party lines to get things done, not extremists who don't give a damn about anything except ideological purity.

    Mornin Dan. I would disagree. I don't think Obamacare can be dropped as a main reason going into 2014. So in that effect it will play its part for 2014. Already other Democratic Senators are coming out and calling on Obama to delay this Mandate. The reason. Is they know they are on the Bubble now.

    Like you I agree a Moderate Republican would have beat out McAuliffe. But as you see the Left and with Chuck Todd breaking some story about how Cooch tried to get Christie to come down there is being used. Then you can see how the Democrats feel that they can harp on the Tea Party while playing on the GOP divide.

    To bad the left in the Media couldn't figure that part about Christie Distancing himself with the Tea Party while playing with their spin.
