Midterm Elections: How can we increase Democratic voting? [View all]

I'm sure this has probably been brought up but this is a big concern of mine. Too many people don't seem to realize that the way politics works is way more than the Presidency. I know that historically there aren't as many people who vote in the mid term elections, but in order to really show the changing demographic and ideology of the country, we have to get out and vote in 2014. I'm just not sure how we do it. The simpletons at Faux News said that 2010 was proof that conservatism was not dead. Umm, NO!! The problem was that Barack Obama was not on the ticket. Since Plouffe and Axelrod and Messina were geniuses in their ground game strategy in 2008 and 2012, there needs to be that same kind of emphasis and strategy to engage Democrats for mid term elections. Trust and believe there is going to be another backlash in 2014 with Republicans that are going to get out and vote and I don't want them to expand the House further and gain in the Senate!!!
