Live listener events —where hosts like me, @DennisPrager @MedvedSHOW @radiotalkermike and our local colleagues— meet and talk with hundreds and hundreds of voters who self-select because of course they are politically active are fascinating in run up to elections.
In last few weeks I’ve done them in Phoenix, Tampa, NYC, Columbus, Pittsburgh. The takeaway —w/ necessary caveat that “anectdotal evidence is evidence of anectdoes”— is that the GOP base is the equal of D base in energy and commitment, set afire by #JusticeKavanaugh proceedings.
I’ve been doing these pre-elelction tours since 2002. The communicate only mood and energy and it is off the charts. I assume the D experience is the same. This is not the traditional setting for a wave when one side is demoralized/disappointed and the other marching —2006/2010.
Long way of saying that the caution you see from the pundits and prognosticators is because of the very real uniqueness of this cycle. Test your own crystal balls at #MidTermMadness contest: I’ve put together 25 closest races and you have to pick winner +
margin of victory. The highest point total “wins” and I’ll fly the new @LarrySabato to Beltway To co-host with me a eeek after election. Lots of people tell me they saw 2016 coming though I don’t recall anyone picking the result that came in. Here’s a chance to put ur views down.
