All of those attacks by Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer and the state-run media on Christine O’Donnell and her family have worked wonders. While 91% of democrats support the self-professed Marxist Chris Coons, only 67% of Republicans support Christine O’Donnell in the Delaware race.
Delaware Online reported, via Free Republic:
The Fox poll found 58 percent of respondents have an unfavorable view of O’Donnell and 33 percent have a favorable view. Coons’ numbers were nearly flipped, with 50 percent reporting a favorable outlook and 38 percent unfavorable.
Support within his party was a big factor in Coons’ lead in the Monmouth poll. Of those polled, 91 percent of Democrats back Coons, while only 67 percent of Republicans back O’Donnell.
Coons is leading among independents, with 51 percent backing him, compared to 41 percent for O’Donnell.
O’Donnell’s campaign on Tuesday also launched its newest website: “Chris Coons the Taxman.” It features an altered photo of Coons holding a bag of money and outlines the tax hikes that have either been proposed or implemented while he has served as New Castle County executive.
With the tagline, “Hide your will. Hide your lights. ‘Cause he’s taxing everything out here,” the one-minute video on the site is designed to look like a movie trailer.
“He loves taxing so much that he petitioned the state Legislature of Delaware to give him more taxing authority,” the O’Donnell campaign wrote in a fundraising letter announcing the new website.
Coons’ campaign responded that the ad fails to address the real issues facing Delawareans.

Coons, the self-professed Marxist, thinks taxes, jobs and spending are not the real issues facing Delaware.
Do the people of Delaware really want to support this radical?
