      The informed ballot read by a Republican pollster only offering negatives to the Dem is not at all a sensible way to approach the issue.  Those numbers showed very little.

      The key numbers showed Judd performing very well and being naturally more popular than Mitch.  A campaign with Republicans highlighting Judd's views and Mitch's unlikeability would have altered things, but it's silly to only look at how things could be alterted on one side of the ledger.

      This line of reasoning at all. An informed ballot test after only Judd negatives were heard is the best picture we have? If I started writing stuff in the Digest about how Rob Zerban crushes Paul Ryan after an informed ballot test, you'd all laugh me out of a job.

      I know it's tempting to think of McConnell as some steamroller and Judd as some preternaturally bad candidate, but politics very seldom works that way. And given McConnell's very poor job approvals, I think it's particularly inapt to imagine that his ideal scenario would have played out exactly as he'd wish.
