      The Public is not one person.  It is who shows up.  Our side is dismal at voting in off-year elections.  Their side is very good at it, especially their strength with seniors, very dependable voters.

      Our own fault, especially the youth vote.  But in no means correct to interpret that as The Public preferring the Rs.  Just, how lousy this whole country is about participating in the process, and our side especially so.

        decided not to get off their fat asses to put a stop to the GOP.  So, we lost by default.  The public choose not to show despite the fact the GOP who aided and abetted wallstreet was clearly still a threat.

        Failure to participate has meaning in a Democracy.
