Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Go Vote

It's considered a given that the Republicans will take the Senate.  But KY, GA, IA, AR, LA, CO, KS, AK and NC are all close to toss-ups.  If people vote in those elections, it will make a real difference.

Governors matter. In PA, FL, ME, GA, AK, CO, WI, MI and here in CT, the governor's mansions are up for grabs.

Midterm polls are notoriously wrong by 2-3 points.  But does that mean Democrats are in the mix to win seats or lose even more?  We will only know when people start voting.

As Klein notes, this election is primarily about who will have a legislative majority in 2017.

It matters.
