    and the "media" still trumpets the "Democrats are Doomed" meme?

    Time to find a new "media." Oh yea.

    And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."

      wouldn't be "in play" either if this were truly a Doomed Democrats saga.

      Tenent seems to be a weak candidate in WV, and Corbett in PA = Corzine redux. Otherwise, neither party seems to have a wave; it's an all-politics-is-local year.

      •  Medicaid Expansion is the big change. (3+ / 0-)

        That unites low income White and Black voters.

        Where the GOP has been getting above 30% of the vote from under $50,000/year households, that's now going to fall.

        How much is the question.

        If this GOP vote grab falls to 20% and especially if it stays at 20% through 2016, they're in more trouble than anyone outside the statistician community has projected. A dozen states go toward the Dems.

        Run women in those states with the low income shift and the Dems could win them all for Senate and take back 25 House seats.

      •  Tennant isn't weak (5+ / 0-)

        Capito is just really, really strong. I expect the race to close up as time goes on, but Capito would've been favored against anyone but Joe Manchin. Even Rockefeller would've been a close race.

      •  I think Dems will pick up both seats, GA and KY (0+ / 0-)

        We'll snag the GA governor seat as well (let's be optimistic).

        Now, for Wendy Davis in Texas . . .
