    republicans are beating us 2 to 1 in turnout.

    •  This posts sound a lot like ... (6+ / 0-)

      ... your post of last November:

      "I'm sending this on my break, so I've got to be short.  Contrary to what was expected, voter turnout is good.  I can only see who is showing up and the turnout for republicans is good.  They are showing up with their pre-printed "Arnold" checklists, so all dems who want to see these issues defeated, get off your keyboards and get to the polls!"

      It turns out that Republican turnout last November was tiny, you were wrong, Arnold lost badly.

      Let's hope that your post today is just as wrong.

      Besides, how could you possibly know about Republican turnout at this moment in time?

      •  Based on voter registration? (0+ / 0-)

        If s/he's a poll worker? Defeastist comments suck, and  I too hope Fury is wrong; but let's go easy on the troll ratings.

        Damn George Bush! Damn everyone that won't damn George Bush! Damn every one that won't put lights in his window and sit up all night damning George Bush!

        were handing out 11 different ballots.  It's a heavily right leaning district, and at that point the republicans were greatly outnumbering democrats.  It did even out a little later in the day but I was only trying to report what I saw.  People were asking if anyone knew about turnout...since I was actually there, I thought you all might want to know.  I'm scratching my head here, sounds like shooting the messenger.  

    •  um .. isn't the makeup of the District more than (3+ / 0-)

    •  Turnout is low IN GENERAL in California (0+ / 0-)

      not just for CA-50 Dems as you posted.

      The field poll estimated that the voter turnout may be the lowest ever since they started tracking this in 1946.

      Since it's a related topic, you may want to check out my diary on Californians not voting.
