    some pretty tough polls for Dems in PA, OH and MO.  I am skeptical of the voter intensity gap theory.  It's really about whether the candidates themselves are running good campaigns and not being defensive about the environment. In Massachusetts, there was a Coakley intensity gap.  In PA, it seems that Sestak is not on tv as much as Toomey and is not as intense. Same is true in OH and MO.  

    The votes are there. Democratic voters would be foolish to stay home, and I think the Dem machine needs to get cranking on getting voters to the polls.  If they do, then I think this election can be a wash.  But it starts with the candidates.  They need to be more present, aggressive and show Dem voters that they will fight for Obama's agenda and that the other guy is a nut job.
