52. I haven't the slightest interest in anything bo'reilly says, but I do know that an income

of $50K is just about median income, which gives me a huge pool, and likely full of the very voter my opponent keeps insulting.

High ed is good, but that really begins to narrow the pool. Then again, as an incumbent I don't have to work as hard for those that were predisposed to vote me. Instead I would spend my effort and $$ on the ones I can convince and who need encouragement.

There seemed to be so many mistakes on RobMe and the 'pub's part you can almost point in any direction and find one, but I did notice they relied more on commercials and social media, calls, etc. That's ok if you are upper income, but under the median income I think that strategy begins to get less useful, it would seem.

The Democrats got out the ground game, with obvious results in a lot of places.

But I notice the Tbaggers are starting to put out info in Spanish, some other stuff that indicates that they and the SuperPacs are learning, and, like the Borg, intend to assimilate or destroy anything in the vicinity.

The next election will be really interesting - in many places it might be Tbaggers against Repubs, which bodes well for Demos for at least 3 or 4 more years, I think.

But they are using this as a training exercise and re-adapting, so these fights will do nothing except get worse. Unless we burn up the earth first, maybe.
