There were no real surprises in election results last night, but there were some surprises in the margins of the vote. In Indiana, State Treasurer Richard Mourdock was expected to beat incumbent Senator Richard Lugar, who valued cooperation over confrontation, but not by 20 points. In North Carolina, Amendment One banning gay marriage and civil unions was expected to pass, but not by twenty points. We hear more about yesterday's results from Karen Tumulty national political correspondent for the Washington Post, and Larry Sabato, Director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.
