    My generation is more apt to become apathetic than Republican.  I think it's easy to say, "I'm too busy to vote," for a lot of people my age.  Not justifying, just saying what I will probably see.

    •  Exactly! People feel that giving the Dems (0+ / 0-)

      clear majorities in Congress still did not deliver on many key progressive issues.  No change on DADT, wimpy stimulus bills, continuation of Bush tax cuts for wealthy, mediocre health "insurance" reform bill.

      Why bother voting in midterms?  My concern is that people tend to ignore all of the local races - state legislatures, county offices, school boards, etc that will be up in November - that's how the GOP has built their power base - by not just focusing on the Presidential elections.
