      I remember all the serious people explaining how it would be nigh impossible to hold the Senate.

      Might be useful to throw out all the conventional wisdom for awhile.  American's opinion of Congress is at historic lows.  Media monopoly was broken long ago by the Internet.


      2014 elections are wide open if we want them to be!

    •  Still need voting trends data to make it work (0+ / 0-)

      They didn't expect a good chunk of the final electorate to show up, didn't believe it even existed.

      Like polls - these maps are drawn on "historical" voting patterns. When it comes right down to it, statistics ... aka "math" is required to make it all work, and we all know how strong the GOP has been with that lately.

      Many districts will be far more competitive than people believe, if the Dems would just field candidates.

      NTM the changing of hearts and minds, the GOP excels at that, for Democrats.

       

      In a capitalist democracy - every dollar is a "vote" ... spend wisely ...
