    Yeah, women are more concerned with a Fox News hyped Obamascare than the fact that the GOP is stripping them of their reproductive rights. That's rich.

    Give it a rest. In most states out West and generally there is no chance of abortion going anywhere no matter who is in power and everyone knows it. However, we're all getting screwed by Obamacare, and yes, it is a key issue for women. Lot of soccer moms out here.

    I'll take your word on the FoxNews thing. You seem to be their biggest fanboy here. Personally I never watch them.

    If any individual feels they are negatively affected by Obamacare( cancelled policy, increased premiums, increased deductions, increased copays, decreased choice in doctors, etc ), that will be on their mind when they vote.
    Gays will remember the GOP 's crusade against same sex marriage, promotion of defense of marriage laws and attempts to maintain sodomy laws. Slam dunk, I'd say. If the GOp gets 100,000 gay votes, I'd be amazed.

    Immigrants will remember the GOP's attempts to build a wall at the border and deport all their relatives. Also a slam dunk

    The young hate the old fuddy-duddy party. No brainer.

    Women remember the war against reproductive rights like it was yesterday...and it pisses them off that it will still be waged by the GOP tomorrow.

    Blacks...well, African-Americans vote over 95% D. You'd have to ask them why that is. But, I do not see it changing anytime soon. It's obviously deep rooted.

    So? An insignificant percentage of the voting population.

    Let's hope that's the case, because immigrants can vote and they hate illegal aliens, sometimes more than those who were born here hate them.

    The young don't vote. Maybe once in a while when it's a sexy presidential election, but midterms, they got better things to do.

    Sorry, you need to catch up. That war on women meme was stupid but effective when the dems used it last time, it no longer works. Besides, did you honestly think the majority of pro-lifers aren't women?

    Not near the problem for the repubs in senate elections.

    Formerly Red states that went Blue:
    Nevada
    New Mexico
    Colorado
    Iowa
    Virginia


    And, in 2012, Indiana and Missouri both voted in a D senator.

    Will Obamascare be a game changer? I doubt it. It could have been. Yes. But, the GOP has alienated so many people that regaining those votes will be hard to come by.

    So you're fine with essentially killing the minority voice, undermining....I don't know....the Republic? Seems odd that the party claiming to push for freedom and fairness seems to do whatever they can at any corner to kill the system of checks and balances to suit their agenda and party. Whatever happened to "government of the people, by the people, and for the people"...I didn't realize it was under Feudal rule of the progressive lordship. I'm sorry the GOP made your party cry when the left lost the house. I'm not GOP, at all, but after this little tyrannical move to undermine a fair part of our republic (voice of the minority), I can't wait for them to wipe the floor with the left in 2 years time after GodBamas little social project house of cards comes crashing down and we're officially flat broke. If I was a dem, I'd be furious about this considering the long term ramifications for all sides. Then again, Dem/Prog don't think, they 'react'...a sign of the lack of higher reasoning skills,, sort of like a bird. Actually, more like predatory pack animals. Wait for targets of opportunity, not realizing that the bear cub they are going after has an angry bear 10 meters to the left. Silly progs. Well, enjoy the long vacation, and enjoy the silent minority voice. The past ___ years will be erased from the history books if there's a GOP majority in the legislative branch, and you silly leftists don't see that Reid just sealed your fate with that outcome. Foresight, it's a virtue the left has yet to learn.

    I'm not too bent out of shape about it despite my previous paragraph. I say let the two parties rip each other to shreds, I'll sit back here with the popcorn. They are both loaded with delusional, power hungry ideologues hell bent on agendas, with zero interest in the well being of the people (unless of course it's election time). Bring on the 3rd 4th and 5th party options. I'm sick of business as usual, polarized, politicized B.S. Intelligence hasn't been present in Washington for quite some time now.

    No they are more concerned about being able to afford the now 5K+ deductible for their family, and the loss of care, so on and so forth. Their family comes WAAAY before reproductive rights, I assure you, never ever mess with the momma bear and the health of her children. She will f*** your day up proper. Next elections, if O-care does what we know it's going to do....fail miserably and cost individual Americans thousands per year, the female vote will leave the uterus and go into the checking account. Money = comfort for their family. Health care = protection. Take away BOTH of those things, and goodnight left. Writing is on the walls.
