Feet on the ground – head in the clouds.

There are 11 million more registered Democrats

If we show up, we win. In every sense of the word. Based on what we saw in 2004, the Democrats would simply need to hold and pick up Ohio. It’s very important to pick up Ohio, and for workers in the rust belt the decision should be easy. That’s why we hear about things like a “resurgent culture war” and other non-issue distractions.  The McCain campaign (led by Karl Rove’s protégé Steve Schmidt) knows this election cannot be about what is best for the American people.  

If you’ve gotten discouraged by some of the events of the last few weeks, think about a few things:  

  • Have you ever been called for a poll?
  • Do you know anyone who has ever responded to these tracking polls? Why not? 
  • Do you have a land-line?
  • Do you respond well to calls sounding like solicitations?
  • If you’re working three jobs just to keep your home, do you have any chance to be polled?

Then there are the admissions from pollsters that they used methodologies that leaned toward McCain. People who know what must be done this November are patiently waiting until January 20th, 2009 at 12:00 pm eastern time to breathe a sigh of relief that the assault on the middle class is over. The polls are not going to matter this year, and the results of this election could shock everyone. I have a good feeling about both New Mexico and Colorado going to Obama, and the Republicans may actually find they’ve lost a lot of support in Florida, Nevada and Iowa (of all places). There are a lot of states that ended up very close in 2004, when the Democrats put up a weak candidate in Senator John Kerry. The only way we can lose this election is if the talking heads convince us it doesn’t matter, yet again.
