    Hey, it fits!

    I have high hopes for NC as it gets more techy and therefore more educated. Dems also did well in statewide races over the last couple of years, capturing Gov, AG, etc and the state Supreme Court. It might even be a more realistic get than Florida given that Dems now control the voting process in NC unlike FL.

    The difference here is though I disagree with Handy and often scrap with with him, I respect him.
    OH THERE IS BAD BLOOD BROTHER!!!!

    Are the cities/suburbs growing faster than the rural areas? I feel like they would be, only because NC is becoming more of a battleground. I think NC is the new Ohio- lots of people in a few major metropolitan areas, but also, as you said, quite a few people still in the many rural areas.

    VA's the same way. RTP may save it like NoVa saved VA. Lotsa Yankee brains moving in.

    For that matter OR is mostly rural except the coastal strip.

    It can be done.

    OTOH, some states are receding into darkness: FL, OH, IA. Hopefully not PA, MI, and WI -- you guys know better than I.

    Yes, yes it does. I didn’t originally read it there, which is why I didn’t look there first. 🙂

    Another poll found Gardner trailing by 19, and they have a decent track record polling Colorado, according to DKE.

    FiveThirtyEight always works.

    I just don't know how I can continue on knowing that a random person on the internet doesn't like me! Woe is me!

    If Dump wins again I plan on dying.

    Regarding Perez I think the jury's still out on the guy. Since he took over the Dems 1) Took control of the House, 2) seized control of a # of key governorships including WI and MI, and 3) ran a relatively smooth primary process with plenty of debates and far less caucuses that left us with a no doubt nominee that everyone has coalesced around. Obviously the ultimate test will be winning the Presidency but the dude is thus far on a decent winning streak.
