    Dems lost huge in 2010 primarily because GOP base voters were energized by hatred of Obama and the tea party and swing voters did their typical "kick the bums out" idiocy by voting against the same people they voted for in 2006 & 2008, expecting better results. Instead, they were rewarded by the worst congress in US history, which in an alternate universe would be divine justice but in our world meant a horrible 2 years for the rest of us. To the extent that Dems voted less in 2010 than 2008, that was due to the fact that this always happens during midterms, usually across the spectrum.
