But anyway, as we saw last November, the Democrats have a huge voter turnout problem at the moment. The "Obama coalition" was supposed to be some unstoppable voting juggernaut, but it was made up of a lot of people who don't vote regularly. And that's what it all boils down to.
And what's with Democrats and this "pass the popcorn" line regarding the beating that they took four months ago?
I agree. As for the popcorn... there's probably a connection between Orvelle Redenbacker and the Benghazi coverup, but I can't prove it.

"Yes, libs may win in New England and the left coast, but there are more states up for grabs."

where the people live, hence the Dems need just 1 swing state of 10 to win POTUS.

There is no Christian majority. Nor is any religion a majority of the nation. Millions talk the talk, but polls show the majority of Catholics are pro choice, and they are a larger % of the BW than other states. But they know voting is not meant to be a religious experience.

No, the popcorn is for enjoying the sideshow of the clowns that will be on the stage for the Republican debates and watching the reactions of far fringe members like you pulling your party so far from the mainstream that there's virtually no chance of winning the White House in 2016.

Polls show? Why should anyone trust what the polls say after the beating that occurred in the mid-terms? The polls showed a much different result than what we got didn't it? You are using old data to project future results. The Kennedy catholics are dying off. The Pelosi catholics are fewer than you think. Who do you think voted in the 2014 mid-terms? So, all of those Christians are suddenly going to switch back to dems?

We're talking POTUS, and its the GOP in dire condition there. Can you stay on topic or do we need the moderator to remind you of the topic?

The BW is strictly a POTUS election factor.

PS, As a member of the RCC for decades, ex RCC members do not belong to any other religion now. So much for your Christian majority (LOL).

I agree that Nobody wants to be anywhere near the middle. I also realize that what is said in the republican primaries may not be as relevant in the general election. I'm a far right fringe member?

Yes, Guamanians, I agree you are far right wing.

Bob's poll has much less relevancy than a nationwide election held 3 months ago. Your attempt at humor was noted.

2014 means nada to 2016, just as the even bigger GOP win in 2010 did nothing for them in 2012.

20% only vote for POTUS, a far more diverse electorate for POTUS. It can't be Gerry-mandered.

Ask a Floridian about Jeb as Governor. Apparently he did a good job.
