Tabin: “I’ve talked to Virginia Republicans who are so demoralized that they privately think Obama has their state in the bag already.”
These are Northern Virginia Republicans, I presume? Proximity to DC always makes Republicans faint-hearted. I remember in 2006, they barely even ran yard-sign operations for Allen in Arlington and Fairfax. You can look at the vote totals and see that there are still tens of thousands of Republican voters in those counties, but in terms of activism, they’re pathetic.
