    It seems to me that we're over a barrel. While I generally find my peers to be pretty well-informed on matters political, my survey is skewed due to where I live. My friends generally think "well when the next election comes along, what the hell are we supposed to do? If we stay at home we lose automatically, and it would be insane to vote for a Republican. So we vote for Obama, albeit with far less enthusiasm than we did in 2008." I have no doubt however that there are plenty of low-information voters in our community who will vote reflexively against an incumbent without giving much thought to what the opponent is likely to do to them once in office. And that is certainly a scary scenario.
