    hanging fruit for the Dems to use.

    And maybe link it to the data shown on the map at this link that shows that life expectancy is actually decreasing in hundreds of counties in the USA.  

    IIRC, this is really the first time ever (outside of war) that life expentancy has FALLEN in a first world industrialized country (I don't think Russia counts in those respects).  It is absolutely damning.

    I've been wanting to overlay that map with the county map showing red/blue voting trends but have yet to do so (the prediction, of course, is the red areas on both maps will overlap significantly - for those who don't click onthat link, red on the life expentancy map shows counties where a decrease has occurred . . .. . but I'm sure the use of that particular color was just a coincidence!)
