Doing goodish but not nearly good enough, then?

He's doing surprisingly well. Still, easy Dem pickup.

That's respectable. He'll lose with his head held high.

5'2'' according to numerous google hits (so not far off). No idea if that makes him the shortest member of Congress, maybe some woman has him beat? Pretty damn sure there were shorter members in the 18th and 19th century, though.

Barbara Boxer is 4'11'', apparently.

James Madison was the shortest president at 5'4''.

Nonsense. There were a load of barley fields near where I grew up and the crop never grew anything like that tall.

Finally, someone polled LA-02. The result is unsurprising, of course, but I'm glad someone finally confirmed it.

Now, I'd like a poll of AL-02, please.

Didn't Bright's opponent have an internal showing her down?

Don't see why you'd like or care about such a poll though, a Republican wins either way.

I meant a public poll, not an internal.

I care because I want to forecast the damn race correctly.

No surprise here. When you barely beat a guy who stores cash in his freezer, your chances of re-election are probably not real good.

Only 11 points? Hm, not good enough. This is, after all, a Democrat in LA-02.

That said I still expect the Democrats to pick up the seat.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

     Good to see someone finally confirm the obvious: that Cao is finished. It was humorous to see folks suggest that he might possibly win re-election.

     Democrats tend to be more partisan, from what I can tell. Minnick is conservative enough to be able to easily hold his district, while Cao is sunk more or less by virtue of the fact that he has an R next to his name.

I think racial voting has something to do with it as well. A liberal Republican probably has a reasonable shot of holding a white liberal Democratic district. (That said, Cao probably isn't liberal enough for his district anyway).

Do you honestly think it would have mattered?  I'm willing to bet less than 1% more of voters would have voted for him if he had.

There's a guy on SSP that thinks he can still win. He's a Republican that lives in New Orleans, so I guess you have to keep hope alive.

fivethirtyeight still gives Cao about a 1/3 chance of winning (although without this poll I think). You can't just say that's due to Cao's internal where he was up big, because that poll is hardly weighted at all.
