    Re: Prop C passes overwhelmingly

    from the wik above:

    Missouri is widely regarded as a state bellwether in American politics. The state has a longer stretch of supporting the winning presidential candidate than any other state, having voted with the nation in every election since 1904 with two exceptions: in 1956 when it voted for Governor Adlai Stevenson of Illinois over the winner, incumbent President Dwight Eisenhower of Kansas, and in 2008 when it voted for Senator John McCain of Arizona over national winner Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, both by extremely narrow margins.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    That's the point. The fact that in Missouri, the GOP showed up in such impressive numbers does not bode well for the Dems in the fall...

    And in the future, I would recommend not using county-by-county maps... they can be horribly deceptive...

    Where did the people go who said Republicans will pick up a majority in the Senate? I like how people say things without backing it up, not surprised at all though.

    I'm fairly sure that they didn't hold both Houses of Congress, IIRC the Democrats gained the Senate in 2000 but lost the Presidency and the Republicans did not hold but gained the Senate in 2002. I'll check.

    Yep I was correct, the actual results were a tie which gave the Democrats control for 17 days as Gore was the tie breaker, the Republicans thus gained control when Cheney became the tie breaker, but lost control again when Jim Jeffords left the Republican party and decided to Caucus with the Democrats. Republicans did not hold control of the Congress in the 2002 election they gained control of Congress in 2002.

    Re: Prop C passes overwhelmingly

    Now I really want to know the answer, has a party ever managed to hold both houses of congress in the first term of a President that was a member of that party?

    Republicans gained both Houses in Clinton's first mid-term election

    Democrats already controlled the Congress for GHWB's first mid-term so the Republicans couldn't have held it.

    The Democrats had control of the House for Reagan's first mid-term so again no.

    O.K. it was under the Carter Administration followed by 3 straight Republican Presidential victories.

    RealClearPolitics - Enthusiasm Gap on Display in Tuesday's Primaries

    if you want to get your head around house, senate and gub races, in all their multi-variety, coast to coast, one of the best places to start is always rcp

    jay cost is a must read, but the above rcp anaysis of enthusiasm, turnout and what they portend for november is by sean trende

    it's eye-openingly revealing

    some snippets

    in michigan's tuesday primary for gub, the ratio of republicans voting to dems (1.045 million reds, 527,000 blues, 1.98 to 1) was almost DOUBLE the previous highest ratio this decade

    turnout in missouri (580,000 knuckle draggers, 395,000 enlightened) saw, once again, a ratio of "them" to "us" that was DOUBLE "what it typically was this decade"

    in MO4, ike skelton, chair of house armed services, endured his first primary challenge in 10 years---dem turnout was 20% LOWER than when he ran UNCONTESTED (think about it), while opposition turnout, naturally, increased

    bart stupak, MI1, the congressman whose caving on his pro life position cleared passage of obamacare, (stupak soon after wisely announced his retirement)---in MI1, stupak's old seat, blue votership was HALF what it was in 08, while red ballots TRIPLED

    "what makes tuesday's turnout especially noteworty," concludes trende, "is its proximity to the general election" in november

    there's quite a bit more, an awful lot of data, ALL OF IT saying the same thing

    check it out if you're inclined

    peace
