Can we avoid disaster?

Paco sees the same bad news in polls as I do.
I can't watch the local news. I don't want to destroy my TV when a Terry McAuliffe ad comes on.
This is another troubling aspect of the proliferation of low-information voters: I guess they vote for whoever crops up most often in televised political commercials.
Another reason for his surprising success is, of course, the migration into Northern Virginia of hundreds of thousands of federal employees, government lobbyists, and special-interest pimps over the last couple of decades (a genuine flood during the last five years).

The Cuccinelli campaign has been waiting for people to wake up and realize - I'm voting for this guy?
It happened in the Democratic primary of 2009.
