    "Likely Voters" have already made up their minds, apparently. Going into the election cycle, wherein many have never really heard of who is actually up for what: The various polls being reported all tend to focus on "likely" voters.

    Gallup actually explains who they are. Older Age is a large part of it. The Republican 'Pledge" sheds further light on the "pictured" outcome.

    The Invisible Six Point Democratic Lead

    An underlying shift of recent weeks, however, is that polling tends to show that more and more respondents are trending to a Democratic Party Identification. The results reported in the individual races rarely total 100% Minority Parties, especially in California would be thrilled with 2% of the vote in the midterms.

    The Bloomberg National Poll actually probed some issue questions. Even though everyone is socially against the Health Care Reform: Item by Item then mostly everyone polled: Is your basic, everyday American, red-blooded Socialist at heart.

    Famously, even the rocks are red in Sedona, AZ, where Senator McCain is from: When memorty serves. More likely he regards the rocks to really be Republicans, based on their color, however.

    More likely there are lots of Democrat Incumbents, not pollling 50% or above in the likely voter polling. Less likely is that GOP is picking up more and more party Identifiers: Willing to associate with Witches, Nazi's, Segregationists, and Squandering Millionairesses: Of the Dot-Com business background, to boot!

    The time may be past when States would refuse to qualify for federal nutrition projects on the basis that, "Everyone knows now the niggaz eat all those starchy foods!" Malnutrition exists in America. The obesity epidemic exists in America. Arterial Disease exists in America.

    Anyone sees the enormity of the problem: Of getting them to the polls. Even at Venice Beach, in California, my own voting location is nowhere near the one down the street. It's actually a mile or two on the other side of that one.

    It does make a convenient rest st. . . . .well.

    They don't pick that up in the polls!

    I would imagine that Dem voters who do not like National Health Care, are still not fools enough to vote republican. So you could run a poll about how dissatisfied voters are with the Obama Administration, and get a hands down, but in the voting booth it still goes back to "anyone but a republican."

    A Southerner famously remarked at one time that of course he would vote for the Yaller Dog if that were the Democratic Nominee: But that lower than that, he would not go!

    Only 4% of Obama Democrats, and only 15% of Hilton Clinton Democrats, are currently expressing a likely vote for a Republican candidate. In Time/CNN, October 12, "But among Democrats who say they supported Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries, enthusiasm drops to 24 percent. Clinton Democrats are also nearly four times as likely as Obama Democrats to vote for a Republican in this year's congressional elections," says Holland."

    "That doesn't mean they are very disloyal to the party: Only 15 percent plan to vote GOP, compared to 4 percent of Obama Democrats who say they will vote for a Republican congressional candidate this year."

    The late rally for the Democratic base usually starts about a week before the election. There is no widespread Democratic dissatisfaction with the record so far in the mid-term. "Four Times as likely," turns out not to be: That major a hurdle.

    So now there is a large Independent Voter Bloc. The Republicans are looking more like the Tea Party celebrated by the Great Mad Hatter of the Wonderland where Alice went. Everywhere the crazy people go, it is not altogether clear if the rest will follow!

    "No!" is still a mighty big word at GOP! So is "Segretation now, Segregation Tomorrow, and Segregation Forever!" So is "Achtung! Juden! Achtung! Ve Are Back!" "Cackle, Cackle, Cackle!" Is in there too!.

    There is no sense of a clear alternative: Being Presented to the Independents: Even at this late part of the season! Anyone would have to be fairly Republican to begin with to identify as a a 'Likely Fanatic,' during this year!

    The Democrats would be easily advised to running some pictures of their own, of the Republicans, running for office.
