Would like to hear from one or more of the following: (*) A die-hard Republican who lives in a reliably (in Presidential races) Democratic state (e.g., New York, Maryland, Mass., etc.) but who *still* religiously votes GOP for Prez every four years. How do you stay motivated to swim against the partisan tide? (*) A die-hard Democrat who lives in a reliably Republican state (i.e., in the Deep South, Mountain West, etc.) but who *still* religiously votes Democratic for Prez every four years. Same Q: How do you stay motivated and fight off the feeling that your vote doesn't count? (Truth-in-Trolling Dept.-- I am journalist looking to talk to someone who fits the above category. If that bothers you or violates your personal code of chatdom, please ignore this post... ) Quizzical in D.C.
