  • Delaware Exit Polls: Castle Would Have Lost 2010 US Senate race

    Delaware News Center ^ | December 27, 2010 | Jonathon Moseley
    Mike Castle would have lost the US Senate race in Delaware to Democrat Chris Coons, according to surprising exit polls by CNN in Delaware on election day, November 2, 2010. Contradicting theories advanced by Delaware Republican insiders, voters in Delaware on November 2 would have elected Democrat Chris Coons regardless of whether the Republican nominee were Mike Castle or Christine O’Donnell. The analysis places the focus on calls for systemic reforms of the Republican Party of Delaware. According to CNN: “despite pre-election polls that showed longtime Republican Rep. Mike Castle handily beating Coons in a hypothetical match-up, the voters who...

    She may have lost the Delaware Senate race but Christine 'I am not a witch' O'Donnell has no plans to leave the public eye. Appearing on Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show Friday night O'Donnell talked about her many offers. She confirmed she plans to write a book and said she's received multiple television offers. 'We have a lot of opportunities,' she told O'Reilly. 'We're meeting with different publishers today so definitely a book deal.' She's also contemplating a possible television show, saying she had been offered a commentary show as well as reality show offers. But unlike Sarah Palin, who...

    The Tea Party, which didn't exist two years ago, came out of the 2010 midterm elections as an influential force in contemporary American politics. The movement, which is not, strictly speaking, a formal political party, finished with a mixed win-loss record in congressional and gubernatorial races -- posting victories over established, veteran political figures while losing some of its higher profile contests -- including U.S. Senate races in Nevada and Delaware.One of the movement's highest priorities was to defeat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, but he rode a larger than expected turnout -- particularly among Latino voters --...

Hours before polls opened in Delaware, the Tea Party candidate said she was encouraged by a rally for her rival Chris Coons in downtown Wilmington headlined by Vice President Joe Biden that attracted what she deemed an unenthusiastic turnout.

    Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell complained Monday night that the National Republican Senatorial Committee did not give her the resources she needed to win. O’Donnell credited Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele for being supportive of her candidacy, but told Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren that the NRSC hasn’t provided enough help. “Michael Steele has come to Delaware and campaigned for us,” O’Donnell said. “The RNC has been very supportive. “I would have liked it if the NRSC had done something,” she added. “My opponent is horrible on so many issues. He stands to personally make millions from cap...

    I have been following this race closely since before the Primary, which is probably why I am more bullish on Christine O'Donnell's prospects than many Freepers are. There are several reasons. I. Turnout As nearly everyone who has ever watched an offyear election closely has observed, this election will be determined by turnout, that is: Who shows up to vote? The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that the GOP turnout advantage this year will likely be the largest in over a century, much larger than in 1994. Gallup estimates not only that the electorate will be 55-40% GOP and GOP leaning independents,...

    WILMINGTON, Del. -- Despite a spate of television ads aimed at reintroducing her to voters, Republican Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell of Delaware has failed to chip away at Democratic nominee Chris Coons' strong lead, according to a new poll. She even may be going backward. The survey released Thursday from Fairleigh Dickinson University-PublicMind shows Coons holding a commanding 21-point lead, with 57 percent of likely voters saying they will vote for him compared to just 36 percent for O'Donnell. O'Donnell trailed by 17 points in a similar Fairleigh Dickinson poll released earlier this month. Cassino said O'Donnell, a tea party...

    Wednesday, October 27, 2010 - 5:53pm Crossing party lines in DE Senate raceBy Amy Cherry A group of Democrats say they're throwing their support behind Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell because their party has betrayed them. Jim McCulley is a small business owner. He's been a registered Democrat his whole life, but this time he's voting Republican by casting a ballot for O'Donnell in next week's election. I've become very disillusioned with partisan politics, and the thing that I really like best about Christine is that she doesn't have the endorsement of her party or any party. She's going to...

    Who does Delaware Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chris Coons want campaigning in Delaware? Sarah Palin, of course. Facing attention-grabbing Republican candidate Christine O’Donnell, the Coons campaign sent an e-mail to supporters Tuesday wondering aloud why the matriarch of the “Mama Grizzlies” hadn’t yet fulfilled a promise to campaign for the struggling candidate. “The Delaware Republican Party turned its back on O’Donnell. Then the National Republican Senatorial Committee turned off their support,” read the letter. “Sarah Palin’s absence in Delaware is a sign that she is set to do the same?” Far from a rhetorical question, the Coons campaign seems eager...

A brand new poll has Christine O'Donnell surging to within 6% of her Democrat challenger, Chris Coons.

    With Delaware’s Democratic Senatorial candidate Chris Coons maintaining a commanding lead over his Republican counterpart Christine O’Donnell, the Tea Party favorite cannot help but turn to the National Republican Senatorial Committee for more help. What’s ironic, according to ABC News, however, is that O’Donnell’s message to the national GOP is “strangely mixed,” as she is both fighting them and asking for their help. ABC News reports, “At the debate at the Wilmington, Delaware Rotary Club, O’Donnell ended her closing statement not with a message of party unity, but with one of defiance: ‘If you want a senator who has had...

    Like any other conservative running in 2010, Christine O'Donnell hopes that a November 2 victory signals the end of a damaging era in American Politics.

Christine is running for Vice President Joe Biden's open Senate seat in Delaware. Because Biden has vacated his term, her reign as Republican Senator would begin immediately on November 3 and the Senate make-up now at 59 Democrats, generally filibuster proof,...

But on September 14th, his Republican primary opponent, the tea-party backed Christine O’Donnell, won a surprising 53% of the vote. The perennial candidate was not taken seriously by Mr Castle, who refused to debate with her, or by the state Republican Party.

With November's matchups set and the general election campaign beginning in earnest Wednesday, an Associated Press-GfK poll found that more Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction than did before the nomination contests got under way in February. Also, more now disapprove of the job Obama is doing. And more now want to see Republicans in control...

    Today, the day after a very stunning victory for tea party conservative Christine O’Donnell of Delaware. She was able to pull off this win, not only because of her support coming not only from the tea party movement in Delaware, but from national conservative talk radio show hosts, such as Mark Levin. This morning she was on Fox’s “Fox And Friends”. She is a reminder that this nation, the United States of America is right now in revolt mode by many Americans. Despite bad reports coming from Karl Rove and a number of GOP establishment persons, Ms. O’Donnell’s win shows...

    Christine O’Donnell’s upset over Cong Mike Castle in the GOP primary dramatically alters Republican prospects for November in Delaware. Castle had broad appeal, including to independents and even Democratic voters, while O’Donnell’s appeal is limited to tea party conservatives. Lacking an impressive resume and unlikely to garner significant national Republican support, O’Donnell clearly looks like an underdog against New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D), who is suddenly transformed to the favorite in the general election. While tea party activists are jumping for joy at the primary results, it’s Democrats who will have the last laugh in Delaware. We’re moving...

    The path to a Republican Senate takeover narrowed to the point of vanishing Tuesday night, as marketing consultant Christine O’Donnell upset Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware’s Senate primary and likely dashed the GOP’s hopes of capturing the seat in the process. Though six other states and the District of Columbia voted in primary elections Tuesday night, the outcome in Delaware had by far the most profound implications for the fall campaign. While Castle was comfortably on track to capture Vice President Joe Biden’s former Senate seat, O’Donnell will enter the general election at a wide disadvantage to the presumptive Democratic...

    WILMINGTON, Del. – Conservative activist Christine O'Donnell earned a stunning victory in Delaware's Republican Senate primary Tuesday, riding a wave of tea party anger and advertising dollars to oust U.S. Rep. Michael Castle. O'Donnell's shocking win gave new energy to the tea party movement, which targeted Castle after victories by Republican tea party candidates in the Alaska and Nevada Senate primaries. With 78 percent of precincts reporting, O'Donnell had 54 percent to 46 percent for Castle, a former two-term governor and the longest serving congressman in Delaware history.
