The result was almost identical to the percentages when Obama beat Mitt. Doesn't look like a giant shift to me.<quoted text>But McAuliffe still did not win a mandate.
Two weeks ago the polls were ABOUT 50% for McAuliffe, 40% of Cuccinelli and 10% for Sarvis the Libertarian. McAuliffe won with 47.9%, Cuccinelli with 45.5% and Salvis with just 6.6%. At the end, the Democrats did not turn out that heavy while a third of the Libertarians switched to Cuccinelli.
By the way, almost all Libertarians are TEA Partiers as the TEA Party is about a conservative fiscal policy.
And that is why Hillary and Obama turned out to campaign for McAulliffe as they knew he was in trouble.
All Libertarians are TeaBaggers? That will come as shocking news to millions of Libertarians
