More thoughts on the oddyear election 

In an opinion article in the Wall Street Journal this morning, I argue that labor union leaders were the biggest losers in Tuesday’s election results.

In Virginia Republican nominee Bob McDonnell campaigned hard against the union leaders’ card check bill, while in New Jersey Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine had been a staunch supporter of the public employee unions (indeed he even had an affair with a woman who headed one of the biggest public employee unions). McDonnell won handily and Corzine lost.

I’ll have more election analysis later, but for an intelligent take on the election results I recommend this memo from Republican pollster Ed Goeas and for a good analysis, with links to poll results, of Barack Obama’s position in the political firmament I recommend pollster Scott Rasmussen’s thoughts, complete with links to polling evidence.
