Katherine Harris is trailing Bill Nelson by a 61%-33% count. Yeah, an absolute blowout. But what's amazing is not that Nelson leads by a mile, but that 33% side with Harris! Who are these people? Harris has conducted about as bad a campaign as one could ever manage, filled with key staffing departures, money problems, outrageous statements from Harris, etc. etc.

Notice her polling figure is about equal to GW's lowest figure. Somewhere in this country are about 1/3 of the voting population that will side with the likes of GW and Harris no matter what happens in the world, no matter what they say or do, no matter how off the deep end they may appear to have gone. There exists a zombie faction that will always vote for the "R" -- a truly sad fact. But hey, there's one other option that doesn't involve the unthinkable to them (voting "D"): just stay at home on Election Day.
