  •  Corzine will only win due Dagget getting 20% (0+ / 0-)

    Corzine might win but only because third party Dagget will take votes from Christie.

    Since most of the Dagget voters are GOP voters, the more likely scenario is they vote for Christie and he wins.

    If GOP were the "damaged brand" portrayed, you would not see extremist GOP'ers like Christie and McDonnell winning on blue states like NJ and VA.

    McDonnell is the best example since VA is true swing state and McDonnell is such an extremist right wing candidate.

    The party ID/brand is simply meaningless.

    •  Daggett's Taking Votes from Christie... (0+ / 0-)

      ...but I don't think that makes his supporters GOP voters.

      Daggett got the endorsement of the Sierra Club, hardly a GOP stronghold.

      What Daggett voters are is anti-Corzine voters ... but clearly they don't want to vote for the GOP.

      Policies that were wrong under George W. Bush are no less wrong because Barack Obama is in the White House. - Bob Herbert
