Republicans Kicking Dem Heiny in Early Voting

Read this here and weep you lefty democrats.  If this holds for California too we will see a shift of monumental proportions in the state legislatures, governors and Congress and it will be conservative.  My kind of election.

    "Democrats are not voting at as high rates as they did in 2008, but they are voting at higher rates [than Republicans] in early voting,"

    In an election year when good news has been scarce for Democrats, anxious party strategists are heartened by at least one development: In states that have started voting, early indications are that Democratic turnout could be stronger than expected.

    Despite the much-discussed "enthusiasm gap," early balloting suggests that the voter turnout engine that Barack Obama revved up in 2008 has not sputtered out entirely, according to the Atlas Project, a Democratic consulting firm that analyzed voter data.

    The firm told its clients Friday that early ballots in the 17 states where voting has been sufficient to draw historical comparisons show a partisan balance that looks very much like that in 2006, the year Democrats took back the House and the Senate.

    " although it is still early in the In many states, it even appears that the electorate so far is a little more Democratic than in 2006,early voting process," reported the firm, which was founded by Mary Beth Cahill, manager of John F. Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign, and Steve Rosenthal, a former political director for the AFL-CIO. "Further, in some states like Georgia, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina, African Americans in particular seem to be making up a greater proportion of early voters at this point than in 2006."

    Outside analysts are seeing much the same. "Democrats are not voting at as high rates as they did in 2008, but they are voting at higher rates [than Republicans] in early voting," said Michael McDonald, a George Mason University associate professor who specializes in voter behavior.

  3. I suspect the Dems are going to kick the Rep's heinie here in California.

    Note the spelling of heinie, your spelling, heiny, is the Australian slang version. Does that mean I have class because I know the difference?

  4. Tumulty is incorrect and all the sources I have including the one I cited show republicans are turning out in higher percentages.

    Heinie eh? Well I am optimistic about California but I do realize republicans are about 10 points down in percentages here.

    Regarding class. I long ago knew I had class and use it to my advantage. My ploy usually exposes pseudo highclass people who have a problem with their betters.
