  •  Astorino is a very savvy pol...even his first... (8+ / 0-)

    ...win (I believe it was his second attempt) as Westchester County Exec, a year after Obama won the White House, was a rather big upset. I would not underestimate this guy. (And, yeah, all that being said, I still think he'll lose in November. But, again, he's not to be underestimated.)

    •  Wouldn't that depend on voter turn out, too? (2+ / 0-)

      Nothing suppresses voter turn out than apathy with the candidates, although that doesn't seem to apply to conservative/right wing voters, as it does to Democrats who aren't married to the party and Independents who are more discerning.

      That with the The Donald and Carl Paladino supporting and working on his behalf he'll probably lose voters who see both of them as total jerks.  

      Never be afraid to voice your opinion and fight for it . Corporations aren't people, they're Republicans (Rev Al Sharpton 10/7/2011) Voting is a louder voice than a bullhorn but sometimes you need that bullhorn to retain your vote.
