    What faction is more passionate about the next election may just be the indicator of who wins the next election. Will the Pro Obama Passion we saw in 2008 stay steady or the Anti Economy Recovery People have more passion and come to the polls to vote?

    Will the promise of repeal of the Obamacare spur Independents and Republicans to make that trek or the promise of more jobs for Hispanics and more of the same policies urge Independents and Democrats crowd the polls in November for the vote for 4 more years?

    Well the Obamaroids can cheer that someone on the Romney campaign confused a Venn diagram.

    Oh, and he's going to bomb Syria in October to try to win the Jewish Vote

    Well, most Obama voters are voting FOR President Obama. Most Romney voters are voting against President Obama and not for their candidate. That certainly made a difference in the Bush/Kerry race.

    The Republicans will turn to a proven winning strategy in their local races and make this a vote for or against Obamatax.

    Even the People's Republic of Mass rose up to beatdown Obamatax when they had the chance at the ballot box.

    The Scott Brown pitch will be repeated all across the Nation in '12.

    Regardless of what kind of vote it is, it counts in the ballot boxes. Anti votes count for the opposition.

    Gee, really? I had no idea. :rolleyes:

    People who are voting FOR a candidate are more likely to vote that someone who is just voting against a candidate.

    In 2004, the Democrats had a choice between Kerry and Dean. The establishment wanted Kerry and got him which left Dem voters voting AGAINST Bush and not FOR Kerry. It mattered.
