Trying to stay hopeful
Talking Points Memo has a slideshow of polling trendlines in a bunch of hot Senate and Governor’s Races. In spite of the Dems getting a little momentum recently, things still look pretty bad overall. I’m trying to stay upbeat (and yes, I’ve voted myself), but have to admit I’m pretty worried at this point about how bad it’s going to go on Election Day.
If you know an Obama voter who is not turning out this year, please encourage them to vote! A lot of these races are only a few percentage points apart, and turnout will be key.
