Re: Which Is Which


Jonah, your version makes perfect sense. On the other hand, I just received this from a knowledgeable reader:

“The version I have heard: In Congressional races and other lower level races where they may not know much about the incumbent they break for the challenger. In Presidential races where they are more likely to know quite a bit about the incumbent, they break for the incumbent.”

Jonah says A, my correspondent says B. I feel the need to appeal. Karl Rove, are you there?
