Witchcraft? Rent money? Christine O’Donnell’s big problem: she’s behind.

By Peter Grier

Christine O’Donnell’s biggest problem right now has nothing to do with an old TV clip in which she admits dabbling in witchcraft. Nor is it related to the complaint filed by a watchdog group with the Federal Election Commission on Monday which alleges that she used $20,000 in campaign funds to pay rent and other personal expenses.

No, her biggest current problem may be that if the election were today, she would lose. After all the hoopla over her stunning upset in Delaware’s GOP Senate primary, and all the free publicity she got, and all the money that’s pouring into her campaign, she remains 15 points behind Democratic opponent Chris Coons, according to a just-released Fox News poll.

That’s kind of a wake-up call for her campaign, isn’t it? And if you dig down into the results of the survey (which was conducted right after the primary, in case you’re wondering) the news for Ms. O’Donnell does not get better.

Fully 60 percent of respondents said they did not believe O’Donnell is qualified to be a US Senator, while 60 percent said that opponent Coons is qualified.

And here’s the real burn: Mike Castle, the guy O’Donnell sent packing in the primary, appears to be the person the Delaware electorate as a whole actually wants. He’s 15 points ahead of Coons in the Fox poll, at 48 percent to 33 percent.

    The tea party candidates are all playing in the shallow end of the gene pool.

    Furthermore, tea partiers bring their own RH factor (racism+hate) to the fight to intensify the bloodletting.

      The teaparty brings a mob mentality to politics. If you arn’t part of the mob then, even if you have good proven values & integrity, they don’t listen to you. It’s all about the mob and they have no time to listen, they just need to be angry.

    This is what we need in politics- This is what the TEA Party Does NOT have!!!!!

    ‘Intelligent’ and ‘principled’ are two words that really don’t belong in the same state as O’Donnell or Miller. She’s a completely incoherent nutjob just like Sarah Palin.
    I see a similar scenrio play out here in Alaska. Miller is also a nutjob.. I’d rather vote for a Dem! Luckly I won’t have to at least in this position. Senator Lisa Murkowski is in the middle of a write in campaign that we hope will make history..
