23. Here's some of the problem with just doing Statistics this far ahead....

the problem is that the 2016 election could be significantly influenced by the new Voter restrictions in many states. We have to wonder will Bloomberg (and our Dems) be able to organize at the local precinct level to get out and protect the voters? A Candidate who get's Overwhelming Support as an Indie...might run into trouble with the Rammed Through...NEW Voting Rights Legislation in many of our States..(including North Carolina) that went BLUE for Obama in 2008...and RED after that.

The problem going forward into 2016 is that Democratic voters have had to deal with ALEC /American Legislative Council and other RW forces like the Koch Brothers money targeting states that would be BLUE...until they came in...and we were let down by our Democratic Machine from Tim Kaine...and since.

We here in My State are now dealing with this. Won't get into more...but, it's a crisis for us. It's NC..and you've probably seen the Protests Against all this posted on DU.

It's going to be interesting how both the Republicans and Democrats manage to weave their way through this new "Restrictive Voting Legislation" ...as they move forward to 2016. Things have moved way beyond what we dealt with before in past elections into something "Different." So...in that landscape I can see ..that Bloomberg would have a problem qualifying in my state to get on the ballot.

Even Qualified Dems might have a problem getting on that Ballot here.
