Talk about a survivor: Jim Douglas, the Republican governor Vermont, has won reelection. Every two years, Douglas has to deal with an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate -- and every two years he wins.

Even more shocking: The Democratic nominee, Gaye Symington, is only mustering 21% of the vote. Independent Anthony Pollina, who scored a series of labor endorsements, is narrowly ahead of Symington.

Perhaps in two years the Democrats will make Polling their nominee?
