    …on a Presidential election, and even more so on mid-terms. Tremendous efforts have to be deployed simply to get Democrats to the voting booth on those occasions.

    Therefore, what makes anyone think that these same voters turn out in droves at a friggin GOP primary election? Don't go thinking that Democrats are as ardent political supporters as foaming-at-the-mouth conservatives are...

    Come on Allen, how about some "personal responsibility"…?

        Of course there ARE Democrats who readily vote without having to be dragged out of their house, and there are Democrats who will vote in GOP primaries.

        But rarely will there be enough doing so to make a difference!
