(CNN) – The thing about Delaware is: it's no Kentucky.
The Tea Party's first Senate loss of the night may be no big surprise - the only question heading into tonight's been how big a victory margin Chris Coons would capture over Christine O'Donnell. But the exit polls lay out the political and demographic roadblocks facing any Tea Party favorite here.
Nearly half the state's voters describe themselves as moderate. Nearly another 1 in 4 call themselves liberal. This is Biden country: 58 percent of Delaware voters say they approve of President Obama's job performance. And 36 percent say they strongly oppose the Tea Party.
If GOP voters are feeling any buyer's remorse, they may take some solace in one surprising stat: despite pre-election polls that showed longtime Republican Rep. Mike Castle handily beating Coons in a hypothetical matchup, the voters who turned out today said they would still probably have sent Coons to Washington over Castle, backing him 44-43 percent.
This was no surprise.
O donnell is toast. Thank god we won't hear that voice for a while.
People of Delaware realize that their livelyhood is not a game. If you vote to hurt the other guy, it will affect you also.
So... exit polls have a margin of error of less than 1%? In a poll 44-43 is a tie right?
Seriously O'Donnell? With your fake and phone waves and eye stretches to those you see, did you really think you had a chance in h3ll? Poor fool, lost yet again, give it up, Republicans are NOT going to win in a landslide, dream on Fox idiots, dream on.
Ding, dong the witch is dead, the witch is dead, the witch is dead!
