    opposition has a lot less $, but reach a saturation point especially when there's nothing to offer (empty message) which the low turnouts proved for the GOP. It in the General Election unfortunately boils down to battleground/swing states and the voter suppression efforts unrelated to advertising. Ground Game trumps Air War.

    slutty voter for a "dangerous president"; Präsidentenelf-maßschach; Warning-Some Snark Above"Nous sommes un groupuscule" (-9.50; -7.03) "Sciant terra viam monstrare." 政治委员, 政委!

    •  Yes, actually, voter suppression worries me more (0+ / 0-)

      They are working hard to keep certain voter groups away from the polls. That is probably how they rigged 2004 in Ohio and stole the election here, not some touchscreen vote-flipping scheme (How many times do I have to point out that almost no touchscreens were being used in Ohio in 2004? But four, five, six and even 10 hour lines were common in certain areas while wealthy white suburbs had no wait).
