    In 2010 he had more going for him in terms of national political mood and crappy opposing campaign. This time he has the benefit of huge statewide recognition (no small factor in special elections) and virtual incumbency.

    He did not jump the shark in 2012. His approval ratings among Democrats and Independents in PPP's last poll before the 2012 election was unchanged from PPP's last poll before the 2010 special election. We just had a well-funded opponent who inspired many volunteers, in a Presidential-year turnout election. And he still got over 46%.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
