    you'd be hearing a lot more from Dems, I think. That being said, it is unlikely to be a major contributing factor in elections going forward.

    The Bankster thing is different but not necessarily more effective.

    It's possible that some voters (including some here) would vote for Paul or Brat just to 'send a message', but I hope they feel good about themselves still when they're going hungry or traveling to Canada for abortions.

      A poll sponsored by civil liberties organizations shows that many people in the country want to update the law that allows the government to search emails without a warrant.

      According to the survey from Vox Populi Polling, more than 80 percent of people in six states and the greater Los Angeles area wanted to overhaul the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), which allows warrantless searches of emails that are older than 180 days.

      Additionally, between 64 and 72 percent of people in those areas thought that online privacy is becoming increasingly important. And in four states, more than 70 percent of voters said they would be more likely to support a candidate looking to update the law.

      It may not be an issue to you (or Hillary Clinton, BTW) , but it's certainly an issue for a large segment of the population.

        I followed the link all the way back to the Hill but couldn't find the actual poll, only the mentions of it.

        I'm surprised almost everyone wouldn't say 'sure that's important to me' in a vacuum. But are they going to the polls over it? Is it a  vote-changing topic for the majority of voters?
