Cuccinelli's Losing Margin

Terry McAuliffe beat Ken Cuccinelli by 2.5 percentage points.

If just 2.5% of McAuliffe or Sarvis voters had instead voted for Cuccinelli, it would have gone the other way.

It'd be nice to think that two and a half people out of a hundred is just about the percentage of Virginia voters so indignant of Cuccinelli's persecution of climate scientists that they decided there was no way they could ever support him for higher office, and voted instead for one of his opponents.

In this case, there is no penalty for high-sticking.
