Response to Tom Rinaldo (Reply #12)

25. I think there was still a lot of voter revulsion regarding him from our side

but in addition to the Russian interference, there were ALSO voters who had never voted before who came out from under the rocks and crawled out of the slime pits because THEY saw someone THEY "liked" better... and moreso due to THEIR revulsion to anything "Obama" and anything "Clinton".

At this point, the question is whether those "extra" first time voters intend to vote in off-year elections too and I expect not so much. And indies may end up sitting it out given some buyer's remorse - notably the "newly independents" who were once GOPers.

Voting is a "habit" and it's a hard one for some to keep doing on a consistent basis. This doesn't mean our side neglects pushing our voters to be engaged with EVERY election. But you see a sort of desperation from the other side to keep their first-timers stoked with as much vitriol and crazy stuff as they can muster.
