VA special election: Republican trails by 10 votes in big Democratic district « Hot Air: "Sabato goes on to suggest this poor performance for Democrats, particularly in a special election, could speak to a substantial enthusiasm gap between motivated Republicans and blase Dems.
Here’s hoping. As is customary, almost no one will notice this election whereas a similarly good performance for a Democrat in a similarly Republican district would be a National Story of the Coming ’14 Comeback.
As for the comeback, January is looking better for Democrats than December, but that should be little comfort as December was horrible."
