Big if this holds up:

@PoliticsReid: Turnout among 18-29 year olds, compared to 2014 early voting:
- AZ +217%
- FL +131%
- GA +415% (!!!)
- MI +128%
- NV +364%
- TN +767% (!!!)
- TX +448% (!!!)
Data h/t: @TargetSmart & @tbonier
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/414098-young-and-new-voters-surge-in-early-voting

Also read that 750,000 early voters are first time voters.  Interesting with Michigan’s marijuana legalization its only up 128% so far. Have to believe this data throws the state polls way off. 

 

if you actually read the article you discover these numbers aren't as impressive as they sound, in addition to the fact not all of those voters (obviously) are going Democrat. 😕

 

"But those voters represent just 8 percent of the overall electorate that has voted so far. Seniors, those over the age of 65, represent more than a third of the electorate; among the oldest voters, 473,000 have showed up to vote already, a 78 percent increase over 2014 levels."

Only you would look for the cloud beyond the silver lining.

 

Remember, young people....

But at least some Republicans as I remembered them (ie: fiscally conservative patriots, not tax-cut-n-spend ultra-rich-redistributionist white nationalists), haven't completely lost their minds....

 

Sick, mean, cruel....

^Nationally I agree the Republican party has been ceded to the trumpanzees. Grifters, con-men, tax evaders, bs artists, misogynists, sociopaths, all are united under the big GOP tent.  Luckily they and their ilk are all armed to the teeth to prevent them from losing any of their rights.  No dog whistles or winks and nods are needed any more. 

   I like what Obama said yesterday. “The GOP has full control of the government, why are they still so angry?!?”  They are a culture of victimhood. 

 Everybody in my family is voting D except my idiot BIL that was able to retire from a local college in a non-teaching position at 58 and live on the public dole. He buys hook line and sinker what Fox and whatever his facebook feed of like-minded dolts tell him.

This is just AWESOME!!! George Takei sent this out on Facebook, with the explanation that:

 She doesn’t think she’s in Kansas anymore after the Dems won the governorship and a Native American lesbian won a Congressional seat. Oh, and this burn is perfection.

We'll find out Tuesday. Either young people vote in their normal 20-25% range or almost every poll's electorate model was heavily skewed and likely incorrect.

Youth turnout appears to have topped 31%, breaking 67% towards Democrats (at least based on exit polling, which isn't exact).  Both would be the highest such numbers in a generation.

So are we going to talk about how multiple Republicans in multiple states are not only calling for the halt of counting votes, but some GOP groups may be filing suits to get states to stop them (in AZ Senate, for example)?  Rick Scott is complaining that the more votes that are counted, the less his lead becomes, and now (along with Rubio, tacitly) is alleging voter fraud in Broward County, FL with no evidence.

 

The Republican Party is an undemocratic institution.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-2018-gender-gap-was-huge/

 

Based on exit polling, this was the largest gender gap in more than a generation - men voted Republican +4 (so, roughly 52% GOP, 48% Dem) while women voted Democratic by a 19% margin - that, too, is the largest margin women have voted for Democrats based on the exit polls since at least 1992.

 

If those hold even somewhat close to form the next few cycles, it really underscores a big GOP problem going forward.

It's going to be hilarious if the Senate holds at 52-48...precisely the majority Republicans held in January 2017.  This was their cycle to remake the map - the worst map for any Senate election in over 100 years.  They should have been able to add 6-8 seats easily.  They're going to end up around 52/53 seats when it's all said and done.

 

I may die of laughter if Sinema holds on, Bill Nelson wins on the recount that is certain to be triggered once all the absentee ballots are counted, AND Mike Espy pulls off an upset in the Mississippi runoff.

New Democrat motto: Hey, if you can't win an election, steal it!

The funny thing is that people are still acting like the Democrats had a bad election.

^ The only people stealing elections are Republicans who try to choose who gets to vote.  Democrats are just trying to count all of the votes.  

 

it's mysterious how Democrats keep coming coming up with more and more votes narrowing the gap in their favor days after the election. I thought votes had to be counted in a timely basis according to law. I know rules are different in every state but the situation in Florida seems especially fishy. Oh, never mind, this is the state that had hanging chads. And it's the same heavily Democrat county--Broward--involved. Nothing suspicious there.

well, It wasn't the blowout they predicted. It's always the case that the party out of power gains seats in the midterms following the Presidential election. In other words, business as usual based on past elections.

The democrats picked up 30+ house seats maybe as many as 39 and one third of all the State legislative seats lost in the last years.  That's on top of gaining 7 governors seats as well.  This is the 6th largest swing of all time.

only the 6th largest? Considering how much Trump was demonized (and still is) by the Democrat/Media complex that's not bad. I guess not everyone (save for the base and the low-information voter) bought into the propaganda.

Trump is lucky he inherited the Obama economy.  Just imagine if he had inherited the 2008 George Bush situation.

The media doesn't demonize Trump. He is actually a terrible human being.  Anyone with a functioning brain knows it.  That's why highly educated places voted against him. 

 

you do realize that education is not the same as wisdom and common sense, right?

Think about the beating GOP just took in the election with a good economy.  That shows you how much of a drag Trump is on the GOP.

 

but what was Obama's excuse?

 

Trump actually did way better than Obama in his first midterm

"In midterm elections, a president's party loses a handful of seats. For former President Barack Obama, midterm elections in 2010 and 2014 were catastrophic compared to Trump's moderate losses."

Obama lost more seats because Dems started with way more seats.  Do you even math?

 

Plus many voters will murdered in the death panels.

Obama's excuse was passing once-in-a-generation health care reform and the fact that many people are really scared of change and therefore easily manipulated by those with malicious intent...

- Democrats picked up 33 seats (13 to be decided, 7 of those Dems are leading)

- Democrats picked up 7 governorships

- Republicans lost 400 statehouse seats

- Dems flipped 7 state legislatures

 

It was a beating...
