  •  The lesson (4+ / 0-)

    of Fla-13 is this:

    Democrats have yet to find a way to get their groups to turnout in non-presidential years.  The hope was that the lessons learned in 2012 by Obama could be applied and help reverse the drop-off in turnout.

    It didn't work in FL-13, despite the amount of money spent there.  Maybe it will be different in the fall - but the simple truth is at this point the 2014 electorate is likely to look like the 2010 electorate (which looked like the 2006 electorate).

    In many of the post mortems I am reading I see a similarity between what the Romney people were saying about 2012 and the excuses being offered.  The Romney people said the electorate in 2012 wouldn't look like 2008.  They were wrong.  I read people saying that 2014 won't look like 2010 - the right isn't is hyped up, etc. I suspect they are likely to be as wrong.
