Response to Original message
1. I appreciate your post
Your post is clearly anecdotal. Good news, to be sure .... but anecdotal. I've experienced the same thing here in a blue state. The purple areas seem to be moving a bit away from their blind allegience and actually (gasp) thinking for themselves - which is always a good thing.

How do you get the feeling the tide is turning? Is it more than anecdotal?
