  •  Learned of two friends whose retired parents (7+ / 0-)

    are going door to door for Obama in NC. One of them is running a HQ out of their house in Raleigh.

    Neither of these couples were engaged in the last election at all. The enthusiasm gap is a myth!

    The only thing I see that is different is that many younger people - in the demographic not old enough to remember Bush! - are a bit jaded, because to them Hope and Change meant that the world would spin the other way within 4 years and they are disillusioned.

    The other troubling trend is ex-occupy and drones-are-all-that-matters voters  pushing the "it doesn't matter" meme and moving towards Gary Johnson. My friend-set is definitely skewed with many of these folks in my left wing town (asheville) so this is hopefully a small minority.

    NC will be close, again.. The fact that both camps are still running new ads, even today, means mittens doesn't have it locked up like he should.
