    ...Democrats have had demographis advantages in previous elections, especially presidential elections where turnout among their key constituent groups seems to be at their highests (many Democratic Party constituent groups do not generally see very good turnout during non-presidential elections, for some reason). However, this year Republicans have and advantage that they didn't four years ago: unlimited amounts of secret corporate cash thanks to five of the most corrupt Supreme Court Injustices in American history (scalia, thomas, alito, roberts & kennedy, in their Citizens United ruling/abomination/in-kind contribution to the Republican Party). The question is whether those unlimited amounts of secret money, combined with nationwide Republican voter suppression tactics will outweigh President Obama's demographic advantages.
