    What is your basis for that assertion? Simply because the D & R numbers appear to be "close"? About half the country votes Republican under ordinary circumstances (and has for a long time), so that's pretty normal.

      Bill Clinton (or someone) about how the people if they have a choice to vote for a democrat who espouses rethug ideas or just vote for the rethug the people are going to vote for the real rethug everytime.

      In the end there is no "real" basis other than being bitchy.

      Sorry.
