90. Here's some data to ponder,

In NC along it is 200,000 when you look at new registrants plus ones who have switched their affiliation from Republican to Democrat.

Now, I suppose some of those are part of the Limbaugh gang switching over so they can prop up Hillary, but most of them are legitimate new voters for the Democrats. And I challenge you to show me evidence of any significant registration effort put out by the Clinton camp. They aren't part of this effort at all. They are the "new democrats", which is to say old democrats who just want to take their turn at the feeding trough.

The Obama organization has had major registration efforts in practically every state. He is spending a great deal of his war chest on registering new voters. That is good for the party all the way up and down the ticket. Anybody who is missing this point should spend a little time educating themselves before they shoot off their mouths.
