    •  That's because you recall fiction (1+ / 0-)

      Do you care about evidence? Because all the evidence points to the left turning out in very good numbers, and the left-leaning moderates and detached voters — you know, the ones that don't even notice people like you verbally abusing them, because they're not even here — staying home.

      I'm not saying that you don't remember what you remember, because we all construct elaborate fictions in our memories about what happened, when we don't really have any evidence one way or the other. But for those of us in the reality-based community, we go and look at the statistics and see what actually happened and whether it corresponds with our version of reality or not.

      I'd suggest you try it, but honestly it's a lot more depressing than constructing your own reality. Plus you don't get to yell at people who are further left than you, which is, as we all know, the only way to make yourself feel better in the US.
