Waking up this morning with one eye on the tv news and the other eye on social media, I've noticed a few things being said and done with this election that strike me as interesting.
For weeks there has been a sort of acceptance of the idea that the GOP has a good chance to take over the senate and so today:
Suddenly there is discussion among the media talking heads about "getting rid of midterms". This leads to the conclusion that among national journalists the only election that really counts is the presidential.
GOP winners need to be gracious.
When democrats in office are in trouble in the polls voters are portrayed as anti-incumbent, not anti-democrat. The reverse is never true.
Local St. Louis news stations are camping out in Ferguson polling places.
I do believe, despite all the GOP leading hype, that the democrats have a ground game that has been quietly working behind the scenes to get their vote out.
The oddest thing: Polls in North Carolina open at 6:30. Most states open on the hour.
