How Can You Tell A Candidate Is Trailing?

A standard political theorem indicates that a candidate's likelihood of victory is inversely related to the number of debates his campaign proposes.

The Onorato campaign just challenged Tom Corbett to engage in 14 debates.

Which is approximately 14 more than overwhelming favorite Dan Onorato was willing to conduct with longshot opponent Rick Swartz a few years back.

Sestak has an advantage, though -- he's a Democrat.

That almost one debate for every point he is behind in the polls!
