16. Nope. If their days are numbered, it is Graham's Number

They can do exactly as they please, and will still win 2014 and probably 2016 easily. Their voters may be dwindling but they are party loyal. Democrats are not. It's not even a matter of whether they "think they can get by", they know they can.

Been keeping up with what's happening in Texas, NC, Wisconsin? Get used to that. Barring a miracle, it will be nationwide (again!) shortly.
