    •  strange what you choose to respond about (7+ / 0-)

      - the number of recs instead of the many discontented voters, which I feel sure you will agree, are more than 6.

      Or considering the mood of dkos these days, maybe you are truly representative of the mood of the country, and there are only 6 discontented Obama voters in the country.

      I live in the I-4 corridor of Florida, and too many former Obama voters that I have chatted with say they are not going to vote for him. That is going to be a huge problem.

      •  I live in the northwest in a town considered as (7+ / 0-)

        liberal and for just one example I can give this...
          A friend of mine is a bar owner (she is definitely Liberal), in 2008 she did a voter registration drive (her employees also were pressed to vote) and had Obama/Biden stickers all over her bar (and on the cash register so they couldn't be missed) but that is not the case now.

        I was there yesterday and not ONE sticker (Obama/Biden) is up in that bar or on the outside window where there are all kinds of posters (including one against the coal terminal when I bring it today).
         I suspect she will do the hold the nose thing come election time (she is not saying right now), I can't say that for her employees or customers, but I have seen some Green Party buttons on people in the bar and no one can tell me things haven't changed when it comes to support for the Dem ticket.
        THAT is a BIG difference from 2008.

        •  Considering how little McCain won the I-4 corridor (6+ / 0-)

          by, every vote here is important for Dems.

          There are no signs, no bumper stickers around, no one out door knocking for Obama.  That is very telling.

          Florida may be up for grabs but it is going to take a lot for Obama to win here. And right now I am not seeing the efforts we need.
