    On the national level--what was the difference between 2008 and 2010? TURNOUT.

    In 2008, the Dems were fired up and the GOP was demoralized. Dems had high turnout, GOP had low. In 2010 those shoes were on the other feet.

    South Carolina next year: yes, sure, Haley will get 75% of the white vote and Sheheen will get 97% of the black vote. But the big question is what % of GOP & Dem voters will decide to stay home.
