I’ve been hearing for days, but especially today, from various sources that Ed Gillespie’s Senate bid from Virginia might be doing much better than reporting and, let’s face it, commonsense might suggest. That chatter is intensifying even more. Maybe it’s all wishful thinking or an effort to juice turnout. But I don’t think it is. Among the many satisfactions one could take from a Gillespie victory is that it would be enough of a surprise that even the liberals currently moving the goalposts as we speak would have to stop what they are doing and shout, “Holy frijoles, it’s a wave.” That, of course, assumes everything else goes well for the GOP.
Anyway, who knows. It’s still a long shot. But the great thing about idle speculation is that it don’t cost nothing.
UPDATE: Brit Hume just said on air what I also heard: That the Gillespie campaign was very excited about an internal poll having him ahead +1. One also hears bullish things about absentee ballots.
