Will we GOTV in 2016 post Obama, The Davids, Messina etc

PBO is such a dynamic well loved man, I just worry that a less 'sexy' pick like Warren or Cuomo for example wouldn't excite and bring out the. masses..

1. We have a Brain advantage in our nerds

I have read that we are vastly superior in learning tricks, with academics developing theories and doing actual experiments to find good prospecting, persuasion and turnout methods. And that academics - who are even smarter than Nate Silver - won't work for Republicans. We don't just "think" a tactic will work. We randomly assign voters to get or not get a tactic and actually measure whether it worked - did they register? Did they vote? What was the PRECISE yield? Was it worth the cost? Using official records to find out. Science seems better than armchair philosophy - and only we got the scientists.

3. Agreed. We can't have a system where we win elections only every 4 years.



Minorities, young people and women must learn that off year elections are just as important.
