CQ Politics provides this analysis on Cynthia McKinney’s historical showings in runoffs.
Six-term Democratic Rep. Cynthia A. McKinney may be able to round up the votes she needs to win her Aug. 8 runoff in Georgia’s 4th District — and avoid being ousted from Congress by Democratic primary voters for the second time in her stormy career.
But history does not appear to be on McKinney’s side, according to extensive research on runoff elections that just happens to have been conducted by one of the state’s leading political scientists, Charles S. Bullock III of the University of Georgia.

It’s amazing how such a horrible candidate/elected official can rally Republicans and Democrats alike around an alternative candidate, who happens to be a Democrat.
I have resolved to the fact that McKinney and her 4th District is a political phenomenon that is just unexplainable with conventional political science. I admittedly do not understand the voters in that district; however, I am convinced that there are plenty of people that could/would vote her out, if only they would show up to actually vote.
Further, I am convinced that the people that vote for her simply do not have the mental capacity to understand just how rediculous she is.
If she wins, they deserve her.
