    There's calculation to going for 2012. One is that they're educating while they're collecting. The other is the turnout model. In 2013, most of the important races will be mayors in big urban areas. It'll be on the antis to try to drive their people to the polls, absent anything else to vote for. Past results have shown that in Ohio, Democratic percentage soars in the November election following a presidential year. I think they will do it. The energy around this is stupifying me. It's not even my issue but somehow they dragooned me into collecting signatures for the first phase – for approval of the official signature collection campaign.

      Those polls look very scary. I'm of the mind we need to be polling at 60% support on election week to feel comfortable the floor won't drop out.

      I'm not even comfortable with the majority polling we're seeing in MD, ME, MN and WA yet. I want it north of 60% to believe we can make 50% + 1.
