    His point was that DEMs shouldn't have voted for Cochran--he'll be much stronger than McDaniel in the general.
    I agree with him--Dems are stupid like that.

    Someone with a twitter account name of Gus says so then it must be true?Do yo actually having any credible links that McDaniel said that?

    Irony...so.......ironic.
    I'm fine with crossing over as long as you vote for the least electable GOP in the general, in this case McDaniel.
    This could be a new pattern for the Priebus-led RNC-
    to claim the incumbent ELITES bring home the bacon-
    I expect Moran in KS and Alexander in TN to use the same strategy .

    IT IS A FREAKING JOKE! DO YOU HAVE NO ABILITY TO SENSE SATIRE?

    I am mortified and embarrassed for carbon based life forms that you can't understand the snarky satire that went into that post.

    More money for public schools...

    In my state, as an Independent, I can request a Rep or Dem or Libertarian or Green party ballot in the primary.

    Only problem is, not enough independents know this so they can keep the kooks from winning.

    Former Congressman T. Childers was a good DEM recruit and could have beaten McDaniel.
    Red-state turn-overs are now down to KY and GA, unless the TEA-party makes a comeback in KS or TN.

    And, who won the GOP governor's nomination in your state tonite ?
    Are you saying that I should have supported the racist Tancredo because he would be easier to defeat than Beauprez?

    Can people vote in party primary run-off elections in parties they are not a member of?

    A carpet bagger is not applied to the voters.

    I agree with him--Dems are stupid like that.

    Its all voters in general.Although I think it is more due to a combination of being to lazy to pay attention to politics and apathy.It even happens with registered voters. You can look at any polling location and see that it is true.The more local an election the lower amount of voters in that polling location show up and the more national the election the more voters in that same polling location show up. So just because you got a million registered voters does not mean all of them will show up.

    Yes--as awful as that is--would you prefer Hickenlooper or Beauprez--and how will that change things in CO?
    And who did Ken Buck upset in the recent past ?

    Despite having pretty much the best candidate in Childers, McDaniel was still a 90%+ favorite of winning. IMHO if I were a Democrat I'd vote for Cochran as someone slightly closer than McDaniel to my point of view.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting
