SurveyMonkey shows that the registered voters who stayed home were a tad more Democratic than usual. Or at least that's what I think that means. Either way, Democratic voters aren't blameless here. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/reg ... -election/
Part of me is annoyed by this analysis, because when the margins are so tight, anything could cost Clinton the election. What it doesn't say is if the turnout was lower than usual or if it's compared against Obama's unusually high margins.
It also doesn't say where that differential comes from - if most of the Dem voters who stayed home live in California or New York, then it's meaningless, but if they live in the Rust Belt (or Texas!) it could have been a big deal.
Yes. It would have been a Big Deal.

Many bright educated people are 'Checking Out'.

I know, I feel helpless when I find myself in conversation with people that struggle with 8th grade concepts.
Yet; These people are Confident! They are absolutely Sure they KNOW what is going on a world away.
These are Geographically retarded individuals.
They know Who to Hate. That satisfies them.
We have what we were warned would happen,

To vote not only must a person have a photo ID,
But also a passing score on a Standardized Test,
Voting would become an earned privilege.
