But Darcy only lost by 20,210 votes. It's dangerous to make broad generalizations out of such close results, regardless of the percentage. That variation could be because of the grand explanations that people are talking about, or it could be because of the weather or because the Seahawks were having a bad season. The numbers aren't really big enough to make too much of a grand case out of. Clearly, without the Netroots, Burner gets destroyed in the race. Maybe if her House doesn't burn down she wins the race. Maybe if she ran a third time she wins by 10 percent, it's difficult to generalize based on the data we have.
