    fault?  You put a lot of faith in low info voters.

      it's campaign season. And in case you forgot, Obama is damn good campaigner, no matter what you think of his governance. He's pledged to campaign in 2014 and he's already started fundraising for the DCCC. Furthermore, have you checked out the approval ratings of this GOP congress? They're only slightly higher than the ebola Virus for a reason.

      •  It doesn't matter, because Obama is not running in (0+ / 0-)

        2014.  Every bagger in the land will be at the polls on election morning in 2014. All the gun people will be there even earlier. We already know we have an issue with midterms as far as turnout. It will be harder and harder to get people to turn out in a midterm, when Obama is not on the ticket nor likely anyone they really know....especially if they don't have a job or have been unemployed for months?

        If they already hate congress....why wouldn't they just stay at home?  Most have no clue who their representative is, nor could name even one of them....so you are putting a lot of faith in low info voters to get out of bed and rush down to vote for any congress man or woman....(D) or (R)

        We had better start now...and do it hard core like it was a presidential year.
