    Yeah Mackie, but we all know Marines like Lamb can't lead right? Those military types are losers by nature. After all, what do Marines know about fighting?

    I dont know the district, but Lamb is young, energetic and a former Marine. From what I have seen, he looks like he could win easily. He is a conservative democrat and the district is being redrawn so whoever wins will likely be primaried in September for November elections.

    While that is certainly good news for Lamb, the Democrat, that should not by any means discourage voters from actually getting out there on Tuesday to vote. It is of the essence that every Democrat cast their vote in this most important election! No longer must Democrats remain complacent and feel they can stay home and not vote because a poll shows their political party ahead as polls can change due to Murphy's Law.

    that's how Trump got elected. So many people didn't think that he'd beat Hillary they just stayed home, chose to cast "protest votes", write in "Snoopy", and what not. Then, after the unthinkable happened, they showed up at rallies in historic numbers. Only in America.

    Problem is what happens when Trump is gone and things go back to normal? Do the voters go back to being complacent? I have many GOP friends who have stopped voting due to Trump, but are planning on getting back involved once he is out of the picture. Its like he has put a cloud over politics.

    that's not the only reason it would be an upset.

    I'll believe it when we win. Until then I will remain skeptical.

    That's the best way to look at it. If we win then we rightfully declare victory like in Alabama. If not, it will ultimately be Pennsylvania's great loss and they'll live to regret it believe me.

    Probably the one at a registration disadvantage. It also depends on the enthusiasm level for the individual candidates.

    on edit: weather report for tomorrow isn't particularly inclement.

    Yeah, I heard the weather may not be nearly as bad as originally forecasted to be.

    Hope they get a good turnout.

    lookin like the polls were spot on. Unless Saccone closes the 52% gap against Lamb he's going to lose. 70% of the vote is already in. So , he'd better hurry up.
