1. Hmmm...
"While Republicans have voiced concern about Santorums flagging poll numbers, they are quick to point out that any number of hard-to-predict factors are likely to shape the race between now and Election Day 2006..."

Yes. Hard to predict. Like Diebold.

2. This is a blowout
I know to never underestimate the fact Karl Rove will do anything to change this conversation...

But this is unprecedented a challenger up by 16 points and over 50 percent before the race even starts! This is not good news for the Republicans

How much money will it take to make Santorum like-able?

3. I don't know if that much money can even be expressed as a real number...
Hopefully, though, Rover and Klan will be wearing stripes before the election, or at least be marginalized by the firestorm of indictment.

7. Casey actually raised more money during the last quarter
He only became a canididate earlier this year. If he keeps outraising Santorum, he may have more cash on hand.

8. true
and hopefully what you say takes hold, and Santorum remains in foo-foo land thanking his $6mill war chest will save the day.

But, and a big but. the PA vote count was never fully investigated and I distinctly remember exit polls showing a 60/40 blowout for Kerry only to be a razor thin 53/47? win. So, there's that...

9. There were never any reputable polls showing that large of a Kerry win
That was the preliminary exit poll, which went against every single poll that had been done prior to the election. the final vote tally was much closer to what the polls were showing, which was a narrow Kerry win.
