Granted, I'm not in the weeds of why a candidate is viewed the way they are nationally but its not just my opinion but it would seem the vast majority of America's opinion.

You probably have forgotten more info about the Tea Party and Republicans in the last week than I know totally. So help me understand, when I see the extreme Tea Party candidates lose to beatable Democrats, how does that not matter? Effect the Senate control for Republicans? Off the top of my head these are races that were shoo-ins for the Republicans to win the Senate but lost because of the extreme views of the candidate.
Christin Odonnell
Sharon Angel
Ken Buck
Joe Miller

This year (tentatively)
Richard Mourdock
Todd Akin
Josh Mandel

Hoover, how is this not the deciding factor as to why the Republicans should have control of the Senate, but dont? Thats an 8 seat swing for sure and on Wednesday maybe a 14 seat swing from R to D.
