No doubt about it. The fact that this assessment comes from a Democratic polling interest would usually stop me, but not this time. It’s pretty clear from the Greenberg analysis that Democrats victory in the Congressional races (and beyond) was not only decisive, but also pretty deep. It’s also clear that it wasn’t some new […]Read More We’re Winning!
Okay, whatever they are up to in Georgia and Florida, they can be up to it for as long as necessary. But I think the first thing the Democrats should do when they get to Congress is push for a national standard for how to have elections. I’m not talking about nationalizing elections. But there […]Read More National Election Standards, Please!
Dear President Trump, Sorry about your immense losses in the most recent election, where it appears anyone with any sense fled your endorsement and offers of protection. Politics ain’t beanbag!

I’m thinking of building a device to pop into every story to […]Read More Digging In For A Two-Year Storm
Well, that went better than I expected it would. Important object lessons from Tuesday’s elections: 1.

Keeping the Senate doesn’t mean a lot for Trump when we start to look at House victories and state houses the […]Read More Finally, an opening! Dems, don’t blow it!
This is the point in the political campaign when the passion for polling becomes so strong that it’s like high school love, with the media playing the role of the pimply smart ass guy and politics, however you define it, playing prom queen. Okay, so that’s a dated, sexist and inappropriate comparison. But it’s the […]Read More Vote Like Your Ass Is On The Line And Ignore the News until next Tuesday night!
