Wishful Thinking

Via Digby, here’s the result of the election if it were held today and based on approval ratings.

Except the election isn’t being held today and the votes aren’t based on approval ratings.  So this is not really a good indicator of what’s going to happen in fifteen months.

What it does show is that the Republicans have a lot of windward to make up, and we know how they’ll do it: keep pushing the hate, xenophobia, and divisiveness.  And it’s not like we haven’t seen that coming.

2 barks and woofs on “Wishful Thinking

  1. I live in the UP (Michigan) and I’m really, really glad to see Michigan back in blue. The UP itself has a habit of sending idiots to the state house (McBroom and LaFave are jewels) but at least the state might be going back in the right direction.

  2. This looks promising today, but what about tomorrow after the Senate (McConnell) gets its way and kills any bill to expand the vote? The fewer voters the more the Republicans keep their seats. Democracy by the few isn’t really a democracy.

Speak!
