2) Dana Goldstein looks at "Waiting for Superman" -- and beyond.

3) The anti-Tea Party.

4) What "would the reaction in the American press be if it came out that the Chinese government was investing vast sums of money in developing technology to manipulate global weather patterns?”

What "would the reaction in the American press be if it came out that the Chinese government was investing vast sums of money in developing technology to manipulate global weather patterns?"

Read the post on Obama's forgotten base very carefully. That base is exactly the voters who get trimmed in any "Likely Voters" poll because historically they aren't consistent voters, especially in off year elections.

Unless you are out there making sure they vote.

NO POLL actually goes out and counts how many of THEM will go to the polls, except local polls run by the candidates.

The Dems have been out there after these voters all year. They have strategies to identify early precincts where get out the vote can swing the day and people to go get out the vote.

When it works the R's are going to be awefully stunned at the fact that they took a third straight shellacking in a general election.
