Woah, woah, woah. We made a HUGE mistake in this thread-why did we not kick it off with the traditional singing of Country Roads? Tongue

I'd still give SMC the edge, however, West Virginia is very friendly to Dems on a state level.  This will move the race from 'Likely R' to 'Lean R.'

One of the best recruit we could have in WV, lean rep with Capito.

WV voters won't take kindly to the unnecessary government shutdown SMC's colleagues are planning.

These people, if anything, will be the ones to screw up this race. If SMC somehow loses the primary, this will be the Nevada 2010 of 2014.

Or SMC wins the primary and this will be the North Dakota 2012 of 2014. Or even maybe the Wisconsin 2012 of 2014, who knows? Tennant is only trailing Capito by 5 with 15% undecided, Capito's platform is way outside the norm of WV (fiscally conservative, socially moderate), Tennat has been elected statewide whereas Capito hasn't, WV prefers Democrats on the state level...I can keep listing the reasons why this will be competitive but I'll spare you for now.

To be fair to the Republicans that poll overestimated the Tomblin race last year. Leans R. At most a tossup with McGeehan.

I think Tennant who is a fantastic fundraiser will be able to beat SMC. Who should be up by 10 not 5.  As far as the other race, WVA have a tendacy to have cometetive races.

Lean R for now with the potential to become a toss-up based on how the campaign going and the polling changes. Lean D with McGeehan.

True. I won't go that far with McGeehan yet though. Last time an establishment candidate got bagged in a red state friendly to Democrats the more conservative candidate won handily.

Hopefully this spurs a decent pollster to take a look at the race.
