View Diary: No sugar high, voters are hardening against Romney (247 comments)

  •  Wow, that's fascinating (6+ / 0-)

    I have to wonder how "hard" the membership of each respective 40% is. That is, allowing for some older voters dying, younger voters becoming eligible, and some people not always voting, do the same 40% always vote the same, or is the 40% constant but its membership at least in some flux? Are there numbers on that?

    I'd guess that it's pretty constant, but either way this is amazing. Surely 40% of Americans aren't THAT passionate about politics, and many of each 40% are just knee-jerk Dem or Repub voters (which I think is idiotic). Most of us here don't willingly hang out with, how can I put it, stupid people (and yes, we have them too, just a lot fewer), and so aren't exposed to people who go through life barely rubbing two brain cells together. But that's who many of these voters are, I think. How could freaking 40% of the public still support Romney?!? More, actually.

    Thankfully, not THAT much more. Democracy is kind of scary in some ways.
