Experts Differ on Foley Impact

So how deeply will the Mark Foley scandal impact turnout among evangelicals and other conservative 'values voters?' My gut tells me not all that much.

Karl Rove agrees with me. (But of course, he's paid to say what he says).

On the other hand, the erratic Dick Morris says this is the whole ball game, and the GOP is out faster and uglier than the New York Yankees.

I must say, I take optimism from the fact that Joe Negron is doing well. As in the special electon to replace Duke Cunningham: if the issue isn't the be-all and end-all in the district where it happened, how can it be decisive in dozens of races in differnt states and political environments?

Back to the top.
