  •  our people turned out lower than 2006 (0+ / 0-)

    let alone 2008.  It was enough to make a big difference, and we have to figure out why it went down.

    •  No they didn't (1+ / 0-)

      African Americans turned out in the same numbers, the youth in the same numbers, the unions in higher numbers (17 vrs 16), and the liberals turned out in the same numbers.

      •  see my comment just above (0+ / 0-)

        you are talking about percentages...the over all turnout was horrible.

        •  Yea (0+ / 0-)

          It is always lower in off year elections.

          Always.

          In relative terms those groups turned out on average.

          The argument frankly is Tomasky is making is pretty ignorant of the relationship between Presidential and off year elections.
