  •  They were convinced by the money (3+ / 0-)

    There are many people who would have voted against a sitting governor in a recall election due to policy.  If a Democratic governor had outlawed guns or hunting they would have been gone.

    The answer is that the Republicans have managed to create class warfare between the low income and middle income classes.  Since the middle class has pensions and health insurance they feed on the resentment of the lower class that doesn't.  That gets the poor to vote against their economic self-interest because "If I can't have it they shouldn't have it too".

    What the Democrats need to do is convince the poor that they CAN have it too, but not as long as the Republicans are in charge.

    THAT is the solution.

    Which is good news for John McCain.
