    Short soundbites really only condemn a candidate when they act to confirm the public's suspicions about said candidate.  And Indiana was definitely suspicious of Mourdock, which is why he was never able to (a.) have any kind of a significant lead in polling, nor (b.) able to get anywhere near 50%.

    Even if he hadn't made those remarks, I still think Donnelly would have won (just by a smaller margin).
