  •  Mostly pointless as many blues electing GOP. (0+ / 0-)

    PA will see GOP Senator. DE will see GOP Senator. List goes on CO, MO, MA, AR.

    Democrats will lose most of their Senate majority from "Blue State" elections so what is the point of saying they are "blue"?

    •  Not pointless. It shows that if dems are willing (0+ / 0-)

      to lead, the electorate will follow. This poll should be stapled to the forehead of every dem in DC!

      •  Pointless if Blues vote Red. (0+ / 0-)

        Concurrent with the Gallup poll results are Gallup's same poll results showing big GOP gains in statewide elections in blue states.

        Clearly identifying as "Democrat" is meaningless to election results.

        •  If dems were strong leaders, people wouldn't vote (1+ / 0-)

          red. As it is though, they are afraid of their own shadows...

          •  Your claim is contradictory. Poll is meaningless. (0+ / 0-)

            If people are self identifying as Democrats under CURRENT circumstances, your claim that Democrat need to act DIFFERENTLY makes no sense.

            Apparently per the Gallup poll, as Democrats are currently acting, all these people are identifying as Democrats.

            At the same time, these so called "Democratic" states are voting Republican in upcoming elections.  If you vote Republican you are Republican and these states are clearly GOP right now.

            The poll is meaningless.
