He wasn't doing as good as any other candidate would have done

He was running against a very unpopular Democratic senator in a Republican state - his lead was 11 in one poll but mostly it was something like 5 before this hit. I may have misspoken - he may yet win because the other candidate is so awful but it will be nip and tuck when it should have been a stroll down victory lane. What an utterly ignorant statement and one that he didn't have to make - it's not like he was trapped - he wanted to say what he did - he wanted to make the point even though it was biological hogwash.
