Is Mike Castle Slightly Less Horrible Than We Think?

Jim Geraghty takes a look at Castle's voting record and his stance on ObamaCare repeal.

In short, on some key votes Castle was ok and he's open to repeal of ObamaCare, though he thinks the most likely outcome will involve changing it rather than outright repeal. On the merits he right that it's not going to happen unless/until a Republican President is elected.

That said, there's still no spinning the Cap and Trade vote. On the upside, it's unlikely to come up should the Democrats eke out control of the Senate and definitely won't if Republicans have the majority. Castle may want to kill us on that issue but he simply won't have the chance to do it for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, Christine O'Donnell's camp is touting a poll that shows her within 2 points of Castle That poll however has a margin of error of +/- 5.7%, which in a word is, huge. It was also commissioned by the Tea Party Express, which is supporting O'Donnell.

Rasmussen's also has a Delaware poll out today (3% margin of error) looking at the general election. They shows Castle comfortably in front of the Democrat Coons (Castle +11), while Coons leads O'Donnell in a hypothetical match up (Coons +11).

Added: Ben asked in the comments when the primary is...September 14th, a week from today.
