I thought the age wave was going to save the Dems.  And is Las Vegas a sufficiently major air hub, that it will allow Reid to hang on as Senate Majority Leader?

By having in pre filled in ballots at the polls for Reid? How about getting voter lists and giving them to casinos to "encourage" their employees to vote.

Certainly not option 5, Alfred E. Neuman.  The electorate as a whole was worried about the economy and it was the Democrats who took a decidedly "What me worry?" approach to the problem.

     Probably higher, actually. I surmise that really smart people are substantially more likely to vote than really stupid people. That is if we understand electorate to mean only those people who actually voted, which seems reasonable.

Under our system, we trust the electorate's judgment.

Of course not, they're not stupid at all. The American voters care deeply about the deficit, so they made the intelligent decision of electing Marco Rubio who proposes adding trillions to the deficit with further tax cuts.

And it's really unfair to call Americans stupid when they clearly care about electing outsiders. Throw the bums out! They want new faces in Washington so they can change the system, so of course they would elect Dan Coats, former politician and corporate lobbyist.

Americans also care very deeply about honesty. They want principled politicians they can believe in! So obviously they support people who massively defraud Medicare such as Rick Scott.

You are very very right, Mr. Moderate, at how outrageous it is to even imply that most American voters are inconsistent uneducated misinformed dolts.

This seems like the most appropriate thread in which to post this:

Rasmussen: 59% of likely voters expect to be disappointed with the new GOP House by 2012.

Well, I don't see any reason why the Republicans in Congress would stop being less popular than the Democrats in Congress.

I assume you're referring to the $740M+ Obama spent to get elected in 2008, no?

Spending $10 per vote to win an election is rather better than spending $53 per vote to lose an election, wouldn't you say?
